    Besides walnut or corn cobb, do you also put in some type of polish? If so, what kind?

    I use Flitz polish, works great. I just put a few squirts in at the beginning of any cycle, whether walnut or corn cob.

    Quoted from yellowghost:

    Anybody try using sand? Not to polish..but to clean really corroded parts to be painted?

    I tried some kitty litter one time. That was a bust.

    I think sand would be too heavy for a vibrating tumbler.

    I use the same, although some claim to have good results with Novus 2 and all kinds of liquid polishes.

    But you do definitely need an additive.

    I actually use the regular Flitz polish, not the stuff designated as being for tumblers. It's a lot less expensive.

    I'm sure any type of polish works great in there. Not surprised to hear Novus 2 works well.

    Yeah, that Amazon link is spendy. I bought a gallon of the stuff a couple years ago for about $100. No idea where I got it from. I still have about 1/4 of it left.

    Will Novus 2 work with metal pieces (lane guides, screws etc.) in a tumbler with walnut?

    Not sure how well it works but I've heard of people using it.

    I run 3 days novus 2 and wallnut which really cleans the parts up. Then 1 day metal polish and corn cob to really shine then up.

    Results are amazing.

    I've been using this which HEP recommended. It works great. (Raytech 41-266 Dri-Shine III Corn Cob Media, 30 lbs/cu ft Density, 15lbs Size). Bought on Amazon.

    Hand polished is the best.
