    The tumbler works good. Like backlash60 said, grab the threaded rod , wiggle and pull up

    I use fish aquarium gravel with no color. Works great. There's a good liquid mix to use with it. If I find it I'll reply it.

    Works better if you pull on the threaded rod and push the barrel lip out with your thumb at the same time .

    I can't find the container, but it is 1/4"x1/4"x1/4" pyramid shape media. They are light green in color and work very well on coins. I believe I purchased both at harbor freight.

    At least 8hrs or over night, then rinse. Some coins come out looking brand new and some will need to tumbled longer. It really depends on how much they are corroded. You will get a feel for it after a couple of batches.

    I've had mine a long time. Hold the barrel in both hands and push the sides outward with your thumbs. Sometimes it really sticks. Be sure to oil the roller bearings occasionally.

    I just bought one. I use aquarium gravel, salt, lime juice and a touch of dawn, I run it two hours and it cleans great.

    You really need about a shot glass of lime juice and a table spoon of salt with a little dawn soap. Fill the number just enough to cover the rock and stones. Works great for me.
