How many pieces of brass, say 45 acp, can you put in that magnet cleaner?
I usually do 4-5 thousand in a session. Can it do 700 per washing?

I load for myself only myload. You dont. The big one could do 500.
You use the thumblers tumblers large B model? I would never need a thumblers tumbler/even though they are affordable. I like to wash brass more often to keep it from much air tarnish. Also a thumblers tumblers is like a wet salad, limp and slow. MY SS PINS ARE TRAVELING AT 700 RPM AND IT PEENS THE BRASS A LIL'. DO A BATCH BOUT EVERY 10 mins OR WHATEVER WHILE YOU RELOAD OR SIZE BOOLITS OR COAT BOOLITS or WATCH TV.

You load for many people myload and go to gunshows. We know all about ya. I dont even do rifle. My carbine rifle shoots 40s&w.

I only do 3 calibers 380/9/45.

you have a merry christmas myload. Just get dwn on your knees now and surrender to magic mike.

Saw jerry miculek using cement mixer on youtube. I multi-task while filling up my beach towel. My plastic containers are 7x7 & 4 inches high. I have two of them for 380 and much larger for 9&45. 380 brass is hard to come buy, l been collecting it for 2 years. Guy gave me some for 7$ the other day on castbooilts.

Waiting on glock42, prob a 6 month. Mini 9mm. It took em 42 times to get it right. Thats how glocks get their name/numbers.

A conscience is what hurts when all your other parts feel so good.

Been using the thumbler's tumbler for a few years now and got to say it's a vast improvement over corncob and walnut media. I don't even use my vibratory tumbler anymore.

I first started out using ceramic media for black powder fired cases and it works great. Except they like to log jam up in the cases. And that's on straight walled cases like the 45 colt and 44 colt, I tried it once on bottle neck cases, never again!

With the stainless pins I have to tumble twice to get clean shinny brass that's fired black powder, first time cleans them but there still tarnished. Next time gets them bright and new looking. Basically I pour off the black water and refill with water and soap and go again.

I normally run rifle or pistol rounds 3-4 hours filled 3/4 or better with water, a good squirt of dawn and a couple tea spoons of lemmishine and they come out great. I have forgot it running and went as long as 8 hours with no peening or damage to the cases.

BTW, I use a hand decaper to punch the primers out before tumbling, I find it makes drying easier, and gets the primer pockets nice and clean as well.

Carload9, I like mm's stuff too, just haven't had a need for it yet.

And when I get down on my knee and surrender to someone, it's only to the Saviour above.

Carlaod, adding the leg won't make my presses any more solid, they don't move any at all now. It's a great mod if your bench has any give in it.
