    I buy from a company in Moraine, Ohio called Vibrodyne. They make electromagnetic tumblers.

    Size, shape, and density desired would be helpful.

    Any size/shape. And used is fine for my application. it is for samples to provide to people when discussing various finishing techniques. i won't actually be "using" it

    My first tumbler was 25 HP and was built for Boeing to do a 747 wing spar in one shot.

    Yeah, media and tumblers can be pretty big.

    I've got some 3/8 x 3/16 cylinders (angled ends) in a white ceramic, and some oblongs of roughly 1 x 5/16 in a dark grey. Either for $37 for ~12lbs shipped medium flat rate.

    PM or email if interested, could ship tomorrow. New, so will include some dust free of charge.

    White ceramic, usually small cylinders, kinda means no abrasive. (For burnishing, not deburring.)

    As a customer I wouldn't care what the media looks like, I would want to know what the finished part would be like.

    Shit, I just threw away ~500 lbs of old tumbling media. There are a zillion different varieties. I would just pony up and buy some green ceramic triangles. That’s all I use any more.
