    Default Tumbler - Rotary vs Vibrator

    Just wondering what kind of tumbler is better to use. A rotary type tumbler with a barrel that turns over, or one of those ones that have a bowl on top and vibrate.

    noise? speed getting job done? longevity/service life of unit? does a better job? ???

    Thanks


    Here are some links to further illustrate what i'm talking about, not recommending these harbor freight models, just to illustrate the different actions.

    You could probably justify the purchase to your wife better if you got the vibrator. You know... the whole two birds with one stone concept.

    Personally, I've been using the same Lyman vibrating tumbler for about 18 years and have no problems, issues or wants to ever use anything different.

    Try saying vibratory instead of vibrator next time. The responses will probably stay on topic that way.

    I've used a MidwayUSA vibratory case cleaner for 25+ years now. Never had a problem and IMO it is quieter than a tumbler type.

    I have Lyman vibratory.
    Keep it in the shed, noone even knows it's running.

    yeah, i had my doubts... the harbor freight listing listed it as "vibrator/tumbler," maybe the website was made in china along with the rest of their tools.


    Thanks for the input.

    I bought mine back in 1985 and have been using it ever since.

    I believe it is a lyman, but honestly don't remember and since I'm not at home I can't look...

    But then again I have 3 vibratory tumblers.. 2 orange colored ones and a blue one.. LOL
