"It's not surprising the Lyman tumbler can't be repaired, except to
replace the entire bottom portion. I wonder just how much of it is made
in the U.S.?"

I'm not all that fond of Lyman's customer service. A few years back I
had a Lyman power case trimmer quit on me. Their attitude was, "Too
bad." and they refused to even try and fix it. One of their molds had a
gas check shank that was too small and checks won't stay on and the
crimp won't hold. Again it was the too bad, so sad routine. It's a bit of
a PITA but now I pit a little dab of epoxy glue inside the check before
putting it on the bullet. They're carefully set aside so the epoxy can set
after which I run the bullets through the sizing die. It's worked just fine
so far.

Got the old new improved home built tumbler done and it's running now. Got the old tumbler pumpkin mounted and everything is working great. With a turn of a wingnut I can remove the bowl to empty it or whatever without lifting the whole thing. Very cool. Craig

P.S. Now I have two tumblers.

One more thing. In my home built I was using Walmart animal cage whatever and it worked as corn cob stuff BUT I was cleaning 223 and the cases are now em-packed with the litter!!! I have been cleaning it out for two days and am only half done bummer!!! Oh well that corn cob stuff is the cheap stuff and I can use the other on the 9mm cases!! Craig

Craig I mentioned Arm & Hammer "Naturals" kitty litter
earlier in this thread. Same store. Found in the cat
section. It doesn't crowd cases. I do .223 all the time.
And it cleanes FAST! I can toss a box of 44Mag or 45Colt
in the bowl and go clean my pistol. When I'm done, the
cases are too! Plus it's cost effective.

A little dusty at first, but toss in a couple old dryer
sheets into the bowl and they about take all the dust
out. Throw em away when they're full of dust.

This stuff beats the pants off that cage litter stuff!

Hey Wade thanks for the input I will try it next time I need some. I am using my old corn in my new tumbler and it still works great. I also had about one half a large bottle of good corn so I am using that too. The animal cage stuff may not be worth the trouble. Craig

HAs anyone tried using "Barkeepers Friend" powdered cleanser? I looked at the label and couldn't tell if it had any ammonia in it or not.

I've never used Barkeepers friend for anything, but a check of their websites SDS information doesn't show any ammonia in any of their products.

It does say not to mix it with ammonia if that was what you were looking for.

I just got done with a LARGE mix of 45/40 and a few 9mm in the old machine with animal cage corn and it did work great. Very shinny brass the way I like it!! Two machines , no waiting!!! Craig

OH yeah I am also done cleaning out the 223 with the animal cage litter boy what a job that was. I would say it took 5 or 6 hours to pick out all the stuff but it's now done and the cases look good. I think about 400 cases in all. Craig
