Re: Tumbling brass

On really dirty brass I just put some in a sock and throw into washing machine with a regular load of wash. You can put several sock fulls in. After removing from sock place on cookie sheet and put oven on low setting for 45 min or more. Then corn cob them, make sure they are dry first though.
