    In the natural progression of tumbling brass, have you tried the stainless pins?

    Well Its getting clean, just not Instagram picture porn worthy. If I go with stainless pins, still would end up doing the same. Throwing them in the oven, and frying them :P



    Can see on the pan where they stuck.

    I wonder if, instead of using heat to dry them, swirling them in a container of isopropyl alcohol then letting them air dry would work? Then you could reuse the alcohol and air dry the brass without heat marking. Just a thought.

    I could always put them in a strainer and leave them on one of the vents to dry.

    Try rinsing them in clean water a couple times before you fry them. The cleaner dislodges the crap but it will still be dissolved in whatever water is left on them. The oven evaporates the water and deposits the crap back on. It's worth a shot. Even if you get the brass really shiny, it will tarnish kind of fast because you're cleaned down to bare metal.

    I wash the brass well after. Still does it. I might go back to the tumbler.

    Well I always got tired of picking media out of primer pockets. Figure try and switch. Plus can use the ultra sonic for cleaning other stuff. Furnace nozzles, carbs, parts.

    a fast cheap way to dry the brass, boil it in clear water for 2 or 3 minites then dump it to the basket and give it a couple of quick shakes.

    I found a slower but easier method. Just put it on the grate for my forced air vent.
