    Best tumbler to use?

    Looking to buy a new tumbler for a restore. What are some of the better/ cost effective ones to buy lately?

    Thanks

    Its kinda same but different. It won’t polish. It will make “really clean”.
    Great for taking off cigarette smoke and oxide and stuff. Great for plastic posts. But if you want mad shine you need to get the polishing wheel out too. Then again it takes 25 mins not three days

    Also really good for grotty flipper buttons

    What fluid do you use in your ultrasonic cleaner?
