Plastic Pellets Instructions

Usage Instructions for Rock Tumbler Pellets

  • After you load your stones in your barrel, fill the remainder of the barrel with plastic pellets to the level recommended by the tumbler manufacturer. Generally, this is usually about ¾ full.
  • When used, these pellets will help cushion your stones, improve tumbling action and help quiet the process.
  • Be sure to use a fresh batch of pellets with every grit size or polish change since the pellets can never be perfectly cleaned once embedded with a particular grit size.
  • You can reuse the pellets - just make sure you mark which grit you used with them so when you re-use them, you use with the same grit size.
