Tumbling Operations

Corn Cob is extensively used for polishing brass parts and casings and vibratory finishing. It is also employed in rotary tumblers, however, the inside of the casings is better cleaned in vibratory operations. For more heavily tarnished or dirty metals, Walnut Shell Media may be recommended.
