Default Vibrating vs Rolling

Do any of you guys run a parts tumbler? If you do why did you pick the
style you use?

I run both a tumbler and several vibrators to clean brass cartridge
cases. Both work well. The shops I service tend to use open top
vibrating units simply because they are easier to unload and work as
well as tumblers

This is a very common size. About 25 cubic feet and they will seperate
the parts from the media when its time.

Tumblers..if loaded incorrectly...will bash parts together a lot
harder and cause more deformation. Aluminum parts..vibrators. Steel
parts with no great need for 16 finishes..tumbers are "ok"

I have used both. The vibrating units are louder and work faster. You
can get trough types that allow long parts to be done just like you
can get long drums. One advantage of the rotating drum type is that
you can put parts in and let it run all night without worrying about
too much material beiung removed. Besides the faster cut rate of the
vibrating type they are also easy to set up with flow through systems.
Even letting just plain water flow through will help prevent oxides
from sticking to the tumbled parts. These oxides can be very hard to
remove. I only use the vibrating type now.
