Jewellery Polishing Kit for 3 Pound Tumblers
Stainless steel shot and burnishing compound
This is a Starter Kit for Tumble Polishing Gold/Silver Jewellery in a 3A Lortone Rotary Tumbler - includes stainless steel shot, burnishing compound and plastic pellets.
f you have just purchased a 3A Lortone Tumbler to use for polishing jewellery, we recommend this kit to complete the package.
- 1000 grams (1kg) stainless steel shot (mixed shape balls, angle cut cylinders, pins, satellites)
- 250 grams MP103 burnishing compound
- 250 grams plastic pellets
Depending on how much material you intend to add to the load, you may find that you may need slightly more than 750 grams of shot (up to 1kg) OR you can opt to add a few plastic pellets to make up to the optimal load level.
MP103 is a specialised soap powder that is specially designed for burnishing metal - you may try other forms of soap but we find that people get good results with this formulation. Add around 1 tablespoon per litre of water - adjust as required according to water hardness, etc.
Use of plastic pellets is optional. Many people get good results without them but they are cheap and give you a cheap filler material for those occasions where you need a bit of extra volume or cushioning.
NOTE: we do not recommend this kit for vibe tumblers - it is designed for the 3A Lortone tumbler.
