The 3A is one of our biggest sellers. The Lortone 3A Rock Tumbler is proven USA-made quality - a basic single barrel, rotary tumbler with a barrel capacity of 3 pounds (~1.3 kilograms).  These tumblers feature a metal base with moulded rubber barrel to provide extra sound absorption and excellent results.

Instruction book is included plus the Lortone Guide to Rock Tumbling.

This model has a 230 Volt electric motor and 3 pin plug to suit Australian power supply.  Barrel can hold up to 1.3.kg of rock or jewellery. This is an excellent price to get started in this wonderful hobby - you just need to add some grinding/polishing grits OR appropriate polishing media and you are ready to go.


Note the last photo shows the tumbler with a starter kit of rock polishing grit which is ideal if you want to get the complete package  - just select from Starter Kit A or B above.  NOTE:  our rock polishing starter kits are now packaged in screw-top plastic jars for extra value and convenience.


Alternatively, if you are interested in tumble polishing jewellery, we recommend our Jewellery Polishing Kit which includes stainless steel shot and burnishing compound.  Any of these options or additional barrels may be selected above.

Automotive use

We bought this little ripper for cleaning used wheel weights for reuse. It was tumbling all afternoon and saved us from having to buy new replacements. I'm sure we will next use it for cleaning nut and bolts from engine jobs. I like the quality and it looks like a proven design. Very quite operation.
