I see everyone using a tumbler. In my opinion it takes way to long. I purchased a cheap paint shaker from harbor frieght that fits a one gallon paint can. Put coins in paint can with walnut shell beads use for sand blasting. About half full of walnut shells. Clamp the can in the shaker and let it shake away. Awesome results in a fraction of the time.......

:huh: Thats a different idea! :yes: thumbsup01
Sounds like it would work alright. :thinkingabout:
How long do you have to let a batch of coins shake lol for?
I'd like to see some pictures before and after. :->
Because I asked for a new tumbler for Christmas. I haven't received it yet :dontknow: but I can change my order. :yes: lol
Maybe I'll go with a shaker instead :dontknow:

Sounds like a great idea, and the time that it takes is fantastic. |:cheering: |:cheering:

If the shaking moves the material around enough then I would think it would do a great job on larger relics. great idea :clapping:
