    What to buy? Will the round one be more effective?
    I shop out 2 games per year, so not much use.

    Here are my options and price (to Norway)

    Cheapest, around 150$

    Don't get the Lyman autoflow tumbler - - - it has holes in the bottom of the bowl to "auto drain" which might work okay if all you are tumbling are cases but not so well when you tumble all different sized stuff! And get the biggest bowl you can.

    this is the one I have

    Reading all the other topics about tumblers, a lot of negative reviews on the Frankford Arsenal. Are you happy with yours?

    The one in the first pic is a Berry 400 and is available around $75 from many retailers here in the US including eBay, even some that may sell internationally. I had one for many years, and while a little noisy it was very durable!

    Ran mine a few times now with no issue. Did not see any posts on it.

    The problem living in Norway is 220V power, 25% VAT, $30 customs fee. My options are limited unfortunately.
    The two expensive ones are available in Norway, and the Berry 400 is from Marcos with 220V.

    I have that same one also. I don't use it a ton, but it works just fine for me.

    Fully understand, grew up and lived in Germany 17 years.....Just checked, Bay Area Amusements also carries the 220V model.
