Working on my son's 66 restoration project today, I looked with dismay at all the rusted screws, bolts, clips, etc. Then a thought popped into my head, and I placed them all in my brass tumbler that I used to use to clean the brass casings with when I was into shooting. Wallaw! CLean as a whistle.

I saw Eastwood selling tumblers now too, I think of all the wire brushing I did on the bolts on my last two cars and all the pieces of wire flying off that got imbedded in me, those tumblers sound like just the ticket, May have to buy one, never thought about the ones used in reloading, how much do they usually run, to compare to ones eastwood sells? I am going to be lucky on my next project, 64 fairlane, the guy I bought car from had already purchased a ton of new 5/16 bolts and u clips at a local body shop, not exactly correct, but it is going to be a custom car anyway.

1964 Fairlane 500 2DR HT-the new project

I have a rock tumbler and the directions say you can use it for the bullet casings too. I thought about doing my rusty hardware in there too after reading that. What do you put in there with the hardware?

Ah! I had a hunch there was some cross over between the three hobbies!

Good info!
