I am in love,,,,,,with my rock tumbler. I used to get my fingers in a bind with the sanding and buffing. Now all I do is put some med. size river rocks in the tumbler, add beads, water a kittle over the top and some Dawn dish washing liquid. I let it tumble about 8 to 10 hours, depending on the size of the beads and BAM! All the beads are nice and smooth and buffed. The only thing I do then is take my tiny plastic strainer, put the beads in it, dip it in a really good floor wax, let the strainer drain real good ( bump it a couple times to get the drips off). i then take the beads out and put them on the slick side of the freezer paper. After a dew min. I move them around to another place ort side of the bead. You want to talk about nice and shiney, I'm telling you they are great. Just thought I would let you know. PS, I bought my tumbler at Harbor Freight. We have one in my town but you can order on line as well. They don't cost a lot. Dyan
