May 24, 2011 Pros:In line on off switch, Clear see thru cover, priced right Would recommend: yes
I have more than 35 years of reloading experience and have reloaded many thousands of rounds. Case prep is important and I can not stand to see dull, dirty brass. When my Lyman Turbo 1200 failed, I started looking for a reasonably priced replacement. Came accross the Frankford Arsnel (FA) tumbler and since I grew up in the shadows of the Frankford Arsnel, I decided to check it out. The product surpassed my initial expectations on appearence and ease of set up. The in-line on-off switch saves pulling the plug each time you want to check or stop the machine. The clear seee thru top is a bonus. so much for for the mechanicals and cosmetics .... does it clean brass? The FA tumbler bowl is unlike its competitors and visually, the media doesnt seem to have the turbulance equal to the turbo 1200. The FA bowl sides are more verticle compared to the curved bowl of the Turbo 1200. So, I ran some tests. It just so happens I can substitute the retired Turbo 1200 bowl on the FA model and ran some tests with both bowls. Two lots of 30-06 cases were tumbled for 90 minutes. They were compared to a control group that were not tumbled. Both bowls cleaned and polished the brass to an apparent equal lustre. If there was a difference in the lustre, I couldnt see it. It important to state that corn-cob media was used without any additives. So, if a brightener is used results may be more impressive. Lastly, one of the othere reviews on this tumbler stated that the FA tumbler "cleaned brass fast". I tend to agree with that statement. In all the FA tumbler performs as well as it looks and is a welcome addition to the product lines available to the reloader.
