New vibratory tumbler polisher from Gunson Tools

This new vibratory tumbler polisher from Gunson Tools (part number 77159) is designed to clean and polish small metal objects and other items with a rapid vibrating action. Small parts can be thoroughly cleaned and polished with the gentle cleaning action of the tumbler.

Ideal for de-rusting, cleaning or de-burring metal parts. Nuts, bolts, machine parts, sockets, small tools, any metal parts up to seven inches (178mm) long are suitable for the tumbling process.

The heavy duty, sturdy polyethylene vibratory bowl (with lid), sits on a plastic motor housing. The bowl rests on plastic mounted feet for added stability when operating. The tumbler bowl opening is 7.5 inches (192mm) in diameter allowing the easy addition or removal of items. The bowl holds a maximum of 5lbs (2.27 kilograms) of parts and media (sold separately).

Two different types of media are available: Brown Resin Media, Medium Grade (part number 77160, 1kg bag) and Ceramic Media, Medium Grade (part number 77161, 1kg bag). To remove rust and corrosion, use the Brown Resin Media, tumble for two – six hours (or maybe more, depending on amount of rust / corrosion of parts to be cleaned). To polish (dry shining), use the Ceramic Media and tumble for four – eight hours. Economical to run, as the motor is rated at just 25W.

Suitable for general workshop use and ideal for the classic car restorer, the Gunson 77159 is available now from your local stockist.
