    For testing, I decided to process all my 9mm cases (around 7,000 cases) that had been tumbled in walnut media in a Dillon CV-2001 vibratory tumbler for 24 hours in several batches. The exteriors were free of carbon and dirt, but dusty. I pour the brass into a pillow case to slide them around to remove the dust on the outside of the brass. Then I’d spray on Dillon lubricant on in batches. They were then resized and deprimed in a Dillon 650. The cases were then returned to the Dillon tumbler in batches and tumbler in corncob media for a final polish and to remove the lubricant. I had hundreds of old cases that were heavily tarnished black. No amount of vibratory tumbling would remove this black patina. These had spent decades out in the desert. After tumbling, many of the cases had media stuck in the flash holes. My test was to tumble these processed cases in the CED Tornado to see how much dirt and carbon could be removed. Using tap water, 3.5 pounds of stainless media, the recommended amount of Lemonshine and Lyman Turbo Sonic Cartidge Case Cleaning Solution. I tumbled in the rotary tumbler for the max run time of 3 hours. The tumbler was set to change directions every 15 minutes. After the three hours of tumbling, I began pouring out the solution through the supplied strainer lid, the liquid was black as coffee and had an astringent smell. I refilled the canister with hot water several times and shook it, pouring it out again until the flushed water appeared clean. I then filled the bottom third of the wet media separator with hot water and poured the brass cases and media into the basket. I found the basket design to be rather flimsy to be honest. The basket relies on the clamshell lid to support the basket at the handles to keep from twisting itself open. The Dillon squirrel cage is much heavier duty but would not work well for dealing with wet media. With the water submerging the bottom part of the CED basket, the unit quickly separates the stainless pins from the cases and gives the cases a good rinse with clean water. If the water is particularly dirty, I’ll dump the water and rinse a second time. I have yet to find a single stainless pin left in my cases. From here the wet cases are then spun in the basket without water. This removes a good deal of water from the cases. The cases are then transferred to the CED Brass Dryer. After a few hours, the cases are dry and ready for their next step. Performance was amazing. The hundreds of blackened cases are so clean I can’t even identify them from the pile of gleaming cartoon gold. The cases are clean inside and out. Rarely do I see a sign of lead deposits from shooting cast bullets. Most primer pockets are squeaky clean. I case gauged about 3000 cases in one sitting, and noted that my fingers showed barely any sign of blackening from handling the brass. Pros: -Zero dust or dust exposure contaminated with lead. The majority of contaminants are washed down the drain. Less dust will be easier on your dies. I’m more comfortable allowing children to help with the loading process when they’re cleaned to a higher level. -Improved performance. Cases are clean inside and out to polished brass. Even blackened cases are returned to like new appearance. -Stainless Steel media doesn’t need to be replaced. -Stainless Steel media doesn’t get stuck in flash holes. -Less dust and carbon means less of each transferring to the press which means less time cleaning the press. -Media can be picked up with a magnet. I put a plastic bag over a magnet to pick up what falls out of the rotary basket. Then you just pull the magnet out and the media falls off. -Media sinks in the water. This allows for other contaminants to rise above and be washed out. Cons: -Higher initial cost for equipment. -Drum sizes are smaller than vibratory tumblers, but speed is significantly increased. You’ll spend more time shuffling brass loads. -Cases require drying - repurposed food dehydrators work well. I never towel them off or wipe them down. -Water conditions may leave water spots or deposits of dirt,carbon on the cases if they aren’t flushed with enough clean water. -Stainless Steel media can get trapped in certain rifle cases. -Steel cases rust and corrode quickly, ie: S&B steel case. These type of cases should be tossed anyway. -The lid design of the CED Tornado could be better. If you don’t get the latch just right, it will leak. -Rotary tumbling is louder than vibratory tumbling. I stuck mine in a detached shed so it isn’t an issue. -CED media separator basket is poor quality and may break with heavy use. The handles act like a worm screw migrating water and stainless pins out on to the floor. -Wet tumbling cases with old primers may chemically fuse them to your cases if you don’t remove them quickly.

    I had seen the clean brass from stainless tumblers so decided to try it based on the good price and specifications of the offered bundle. Not being on to just trust things, I did my own test of results compared to vibration cleaning with media. I tumbled previously cleaned brass in the CED tumbler with stainless media and the suggested added sonic leaner solution and lemon shine. At the end of the faster process the dirty water was enough to tell me that this IS a superior system. The process including the one hour drying time is much faster, quieter, and yields a better cleaner brass. An also CED is a great company to deal with. Fast and accurate shipping.

    CED, as always, processed my order promptly and shipped quickly. Both the tumbler and dryer operate as advertised and I am very pleased with the product. There was some slight damage to the tumbler track which aligns the tubing but I was not concerned as the equipment operated perfectly. I believe the programmable operation and the alternating direction of the tumbler is a big plus.

    Typical excellent shipping and service from CED. The drum leaks a little so I have to use it in the laundry tub, but other than that, it works GREAT. Brass is now cleaner inside and out in less time. The steel pins take a little getting used to but with a decent media separator and a magnet they can be managed. I would definitely recommend CED and the Tumbler to anyone serious about reloading good ammo quickly.

    I tried other ways to dry brass and cast bullets after quenching BUT nothing worked as well as your dryer. Cannot dry things any dryer than ambient humidity if open air drying. With your dryer I can completely dry stuff very quickly. Just to do it I have also used your dryer to make beef jerky! Your dryer and a jerky instruction book from MID-WAY or Cabellas is all it takes.

    I wanted to use the tumbler and dryer for a bit before I wrote my review. I really like the tumbler. The tumbler works really well. The dryer does as advertised as well. Double Alpha did a fantastic job with the order, everything arrived very well packaged.
