I was a bad boy recently. I stopped in my local rock and gem shop not planning to buy much, and I walked out with a Lortone QT12 rotary rock tumbler, my fourth rock tumbler.
The Lortone QT12 runs a 12-pound barrel. I also have the QT66, which runs a pair of 6-pound barrels. This time, I said screw it to my 4-pound barrel and set the QT12 and QT66 up with 24 pounds of Dallasite.
I have so much nice Dallasite. I only realize it when I go to load the tumblers and use so little of my collection. I’m starting to figure out the right mix of rock sizes to put in. I think these loads are going to tumble really well.
Thanks for looking. Keep on tumbling!
