Quoted from BlackCatBone:

I use crushed walnut media and add to it Flitz,

I used the walnut media without anything like flitz and after 4 days nothing. I have some flitz and will try again. Do I rub flitz on the spring then put it in the vibratory bowl?
The plating didn't do so well, that's why I'm short a spring.
Everyone here has been very helpful, I can't offer any advice as a pay back unless its plumbing related.

Quoted from plumbertim1:

The negative was on the spring and positive on nickel strip. That part of plating I remember because a person would think the part should be on positive.

The positive should have been on the spring and the negative on the nickel strip. You basically used your spring as the sacrificial component.

No need to coat the spring with Flitz. I start my tumbler and then add the Flitz. Just squirt it in various areas so it gets distributed more or less evenly. Once you've added the Flitz in the ratio recommended on the label, stop the tumbler after a minute or so and put the lid back on and the parts in. I'm pulling this from memory, but I believe the label suggests 1 oz. per pound of media.
