    Hi,

    I have a 5lb tumbler from HF, and I will use some walnut shells (from petco) + some flitz media additive.
    I would like to know how long to let the tumbler run with the playfield parts (screws, post, etc...) ? 2 hours ? 4 hours ? 24 hours ? 48 hours ?

    I already cleaned them with an ultrasonic cleaner, but I want to make them shiny and look like new.

    Thanks.
    Leo.

    atleast 24 hrs, depends on the parts. Some stuff I tumble for 3 days, long time to wait, but its so worth it.........mmmmmmmmmm...........shiny

    It really depends. Sometimes 4-8 hours is plenty for some things that aren't too bad to begin with, but other parts that are really dull need a full day. Much more than that is kind of a waste of time.

    ok thanks. So with your replies, 24h seems to be a minimum. Then check and go for another day if I'm not satisfied with the first day result
