    The pins clean the insides and primer pockets.
    no pins == dirty insides and primer pockets.
    your choice

    For those that use Dawn, where did you first read or was told to use it?
    Regards

    Iíve only done wet tumbling with SS pins once, to do a product review for an article in the ASSRA Journal. I threw a batch of particularly nasty 45-70 brass into my old Thumler Tumbler with the pins, water, and a dose of the original blue Dawn dish detergent and let her roll. I was amazed when I opened it up a couple of hours later and discovered that the dirty brass was nickel... it had been so darkened I couldnít tell. I wish I hadnít passed those SS pins on; I have a bunch of nasty brass again.

    Just finished a full 5 gallon bucket of rifle brass!!! Wet tumbled in a FART, Lemishine, Rain-X wash and wax, and hot water, run them 1 hour, drain them, rinse them,dry them in the oven on 250f for one full hour, sort and package!! Put my Dillon polisher in retirement. Works for me.
    I firmly believe that you should only get treated by how you act, not by who or what you are!!

    Ditto. Lemishine replacement. I use one or 2 capfuls of Real lemon juice. Cant imagine the brass being any cleaner.

    Is the difference in $$ worth the STM vs Thumbler B? She asked me what I wanted for Christmas. I know the STM is much better quality but still!
    Whatever!
