    You have to leave it in there for a day or two. And it's not quiet. I used to work at a machine shop that had a rotary tumbler. Put your parts in, turn it on, and go home for the weekend.

    What is, or can be, used as a polishing medium?

    Almost everyone has their own "secrete sauce". Ceramic (cones, squares, pyramids), walnut shells, pea gravel, various shapes of hard polymers, ball bearings, corn husks, its endless! Various substrates react differently to different materials.

    Looks like this is an extra special one, the part comes out cleaned and painted.
