    That's the one I have, only with the "Cabela" name on it. I add some NuFinnish Car Polish(not wax) to the crushed walnut(pre mix it before adding brass), and put four strips of a used "Bounce" sheet, in to eliminate most of the dust.

    I just use the plastic separator pan with the slots in the bottom. Works fine if the media doesn't pack in the cases.

    I sift the media into a large round cookie tin.

    Pretty much the same deal.

    Though I'd like to try one of those salad spinner deals like above

    If it doesn't pan out, maybe you could modify it into a cream separator or an ice cream maker.

    Or, fill it with those numbered balls and become bingo caller.

    The reason I haven't been interested in the wet pin method, is because of the extra step and drying time. I like to keep it simple.

    Same deal on wet tumbling.

    I want to get the soot and dirt off for the sake of mechanical function through dies and gun.

    I stopped caring about showroom shiny brass a long time ago

    Same deal with primer pocket cleaning. It may have an application, but not in ammo bulk loaded on a cheap progressive press.

    I can't shoot worth a darn, so I at least want my equipment to look impressive. I give my ammo an extra tumble before I leave for the range, so she's all shined up.

    I have the Frankford separator that functions identically to the rcbs unit, and since I have an air compressor anyway I also grab handfuls of casings at a time and give them a quick once over with the blow gun after separation.
    Respect the gun, but do not fear it.

    For sure drying takes extra time but there are ways to do it quickly and you can always put the cases on a flat pan at low heat in your oven. I have only had one pin stick in a flash hole so that isn't a issue so far.

    We switched as the cases are so much cleaner and the primer pocket and inside of the case in particular.
