Anyone have any plans they've used to make a homemade brass tumbler?

Ha, the first thing I thought of was my old "homemade brass tumbler". It was using a household bucket, poured in some vinegar and salt, mixed the contents up, and let the brass rest in the liquid.

You must be looking for one with a motor.

read somewhere online that you can put them in a pillow case with your median and put in the in the dryer on no heat. Guy claims that's how he always cleans his brass.

Yeah, I'm fairly certain I don't want all of the lead dust and primer dust on my clothes and stuff all the time.

I use the dual harbor freight rock tumbler with stainless steel pins and it does a great job.

I've been thinking about building a bigger one that would use a 1725 motor, some rollers and a old pretzel container but really haven't had the need to do it yet.
