As far as affordable vibrating tumblers go, this one works great for cleaning brass cases. With crushed walnut media, you get a lot of dust. Walnut media cleans well but the brass doesn't come out shiny. There's almost no dust with crushed corn cob media and it cleans well too and the brass comes out shiny. If you want it polished, add some polish. The cases come out clean using either dry media. If you remove primers prior to cleaning, the primer holes won't be as clean as using wet media with steel pins and little pieces of the dry media get stuck in the primer pocket and flash holes. They are easily removed with a small pin punch or compressed air.
The other day I was about to start reloading and well, I wasn’t sure if my balance scale was giving me an accurate reading. It’s a Redding and was made awhile ago, probably as old as my car but not as old as my guitar. It’s a Gibson. It’s a really good guitar and I generally mess around with some jazz stuff on it. It’s pretty good for just about any style of music, but I’m getting a bit old to be playing rock nowadays. So anyway I was heading down to get some fertiliser for my tomatoes, and thought , what if my balance scale is off a little? Maybe I should get a digital scale and compare the two. So I got some fertiliser, and some blood and bone, I’m not sure if dynamic lifter is any good once they’re planted, the tomatoes, the last lot I planted didn’t go so well. I think maybe they needed more sun. I planted them a while back when it was cooler. Maybe it’s best to wait until things warm up a bit. It’s spring now so I’m hoping to get a good yield, the Italians say tomatoes are good for your prostate or something , I don’t know about that, we never talked about those things back in my day. So I got home and decided to get on the inter webs and purchase a digital scale. So I could compare it to my balance scale. It’s a Redding. It’s pretty old, older than my car. The digital scale seems to work really well, it’s easy to use and has proven my old balance scale accurate. And my powder thrower as dodgy as I thought it was. Git some
