    The unit works as advertised. You have to tend to it every twelve hours. Great fun to see the rocks begin to shine. We picked the vibrating unit over the tumbler because we find lots of irregularly shaped agates. Very, very, noisy. Have to keep ours in the garage with two walls in between us. Glad we don't have neighbors to complain about it.

    This is an excellent product, but it has 3 serious problems.

    #1. No on-off switch: I rectified this by installing an in-line waterproof thumb switch.
    #2. The threaded upright shaft that mounts the bowl, and the components holding it: these are carbon steel and after 2 complete cycles of stones, they were so rusty that it was difficult to thread the top nut in place. I would recoment that the shaft and associated components be either hard brass, or zinc plated.
    #3. After 2 complete cycles, the hole in the lid, and in the bowls is grossly worn and greatly enlarged. I would recommend that a stainless steel bushing be moulded into the bowl and the lid to prevent this problem, as now the bowl leaks badly around the "oversize" hole.

    These 3 OBVIOUS problems put what could be a great product down into the "nusance" category.

            The tumbler arrived before the estimated delivery date, it was in good condition. I have just started tumbling my Ohio flint, it seems to be working fine so far.

              I had a tumble vibe and loved it, let it sit around for a year and after a few tumbles, the motor died...you can't fix it, it's glued together and the motors aren't very easy to find. I decided to give it a try again and use it for my final tumble/polish, so far so good. It came with 4 bottles of finishing powder, one of the bottles was broken and powder filled the bag, can't read what it is.
