This item is a spare 6 pound barrel to suit the Lortone QT-6 and QT-66  rotary tumbler.  Also suitable for the C series tumblers: C100, C200 or C300 (alone or in combination with the 12 lb barrel as space allows).

Most experienced rock tumblers recommend having at least one spare barrel on hand to keep grinding and polishing stages completely separated.  Still need to wash the barrel thoroughly between steps but the risk of contamination between steps is much reduced if you never use a coarse grit in a barrel used only for polishing.

The depth of this barrel is 9cm and the inside diameter is 17cm - the interior of the barrel has 10 sides to facilitate the tumbling action.  Total capacity of this barrel is 6 pounds (~2.7 kg) but at a two-thirds load, we recommend a load capacity of 4 pounds (~1.8kg).

NOTE ON SHIPPING:  Packaged weight of this barrel is almost 2kg.

NOTE:  image 6lb barrel unassembled - see description above for dimensions.
