Default FS: SS pins for cleaning your brass cases

Folks. I have different sizes of pins some times. I just got back here and I did not expect to see this ad still up...

UPDATE:

6/7/2021

Yeah so I got a few sizes of pins, but I am not really selling them a lot these days. I would rather spend my time doing something else so if you want to talk pins or buy some, feel free to PM me and I will see what I can do to take care of you.


New photos will be up in the next week or so...

04/18/2020

SO Some things have been changed. Pins I have coming are the smaller ones, but a hair larger then original pins. I will post results after I test them out. I feel that I might need to run to larger diameters but we will see. I also requested to be able to make another order next week and I think I will go for the larger diameter pins. SO I will offer two sizes initially. I will be bagging up all pins though and when I have different sizes, I will offer them up and tell you what they are good for and what to expect from them.

I am selling them by the 2.5lb bag. (2lb, 8oz) Good for the harbor freight tumblers and many small tumblers. Model B high speed you might want to get two bags (5#) and run 3-4 lbs at a time. Or you could go with more pins if you do not fill with too much brass and water.

$16 per bag - cheaper than before but same high quality for all you Calgunners. (Membership has its privileges...)
Location: Riverside
Paypal Gift is accepted but pins ship out in flat rate boxes.
Money orders or personal checks (with 10 day hold on personal checks) only unless you wish a FTF in which case it needs to be CASH.
I can fit 3 bags of pins inside a flat rate box.
If you want them shipped then add on $7.00 and I will mail them out USPS priority mail. If you want MORE than 7.5 lbs shipped then prices will change for mailing.

PM me with your needs. And yes, I will be selling these on Fleabay, but they will be standard pricing of about $8 per lb.

You need a different kind of tumbler for SS tumbling.

I do not have any vibratory tumblers but the quick answer is NO. You MUST have a rotating type of tumbler because the pins WILL lock up with each other and they will NOT allow freedom of movement.

Imagine this, you have a bale of hay, if you stick a shovel into it your shovel will not go vary far. This is because the straw kind of is interlocking with each other. What you need is a pitch form that will slide between the straws and allow you to move them based on the interlocking. Since there is no pitchfork for these pins, you use a rotating tumbler.

I hope I got the message across clear. In other words:

THESE PINS ARE FOR ROTATING TUMBLERS ONLY. THEY SHOULD NOT/WOULD NOT WORK IN ANY VIBRATING TUMBLER. THEY ARE TOO LONG AND HEAVY.

I also do not visit this thread ovten so if you do have questions, please PM me for a quicker response. Thanks for looking.

Yes you are correct and my friend does that and likes his. The only problem is that the barrels only hold 3lbs each I believe so you have a total weight of about 6lbs.

If you normally do small amounts then that should work. As for me, well, I prefer larger amounts.

I am sorry.

I do not get to this thread as often as I should.

The larger pins behave a bit better, are a bit easier to contain, and the most important things, they DO NOT get stuck in your flashhole trying to go through there at the same time NOR do they get stuck across your primer pocket.

The result is that you do not need to inspect each and every case before you load them. (well, you should inspect all cases, but not for pins).

The smaller pins will probably clean better ON PAPER. They are smaller so they can get into tighter spaces, but the larger pins are well, larger, but they are all still fairly small and have a look at how the larger pins clean compared to the smaller pins:


Seriously, can you deal with brass this clean? I sure can. This is before popping them in the oven for 25 minutes.

Stilly, for comparison purposes, what is the size (dia x length) of the small pins pictured above?

Also, how many pounds of SS pins are required for a 15 lbs capacity tumbler?

1. Gotta go check measurements.- The SMALLER pins are : .040" diameter x .255" long. I will update the original post.

2. Required? No requirements really, but most folks run with 5 lbs because 5 lbs will give you a good amount of pins and still allow you to throw in water and brass. But the fewer pins you run the longer it will take to clean. So look at it as that balance.

You can run it with 50 pins, but you will need to run it for about 1-3 days. I have not done the legwork to check it because well, why bother? But with about 5 lbs of pins you can run for 30 minutes to four+ hours depending on how clean you want your brass. I typically run (with pins) for about 30 minutes-1 hour and that gets about 93% of the stuff out. Other folks run for about 4 hours and they have brand new looking brass with no residue left in the primer pockets. Maybe I will run for 3 hours and compare one night...

Generally, I run 12-15 lbs of pins to about 10 lbs of brass. This works great. 2 hours and it is 98% clean and 90% shiny, 3-4 hours and 100% clean and shiny. 4-5 TBS Dawn dish soap and 3-4tsp LemiShine. Fill remainder with HOT water, leaving 2" or so of free space.

Yep. I have seen many HF cement mixers get bought when they go on sale for around $100 or so and people use them too.

I use one of those small cement mixers and they work great. The neighbors think I'm always pouring concrete. 😆

In a Thumler's Tumble Mod B I run 5 lbs stainless pins and 100 rds 308/30.06.

The rule of thumb on tumblers is media and cases should bring level to 1/2 to 2/3rds full before adding water.

I use 1 oz Ivory Dish detergent, a 9MM case full of Lemishine and fill to top of drum with hot water from kitchen sink.

When you open tumbler the water will be black, remove cases immediately or carbon will reattach to cases. Also feel the water between fingers. If it is not slick your soap wore out. Four hours should do fine with above soap/water combo. Don't dump water on cement drive way, it will stain it black. OK to put on grass.

I dump drum into 12 qt red dishpan till last case drops out. I don't dump out the media, just till last case falls out. I go on theory if the media doesn't leave the drum it will be harder to lose.

I reach in and get two or three cases and slosh around and lift them out of the water mouth down and drop them into another 12 qt dishpan with a 9MM case of Lemishine in that. I slosh them around good and remove same way. If you do a good job removing them from first pan you should not have over maybe ten pins in second.

After all cases are removed from 1st pan I pour off the black water through a fine mesh strainer I got at Target Store. About 7 bucks.

If you are getting two .040" pins in flash hole discard those cases. The normal flash hole should be about .060/.065 in medium cases. To large of a flash hole will change your burning rates of the powder.

Larger flash holes are OK shooting cast bullets as you need more flash to ignite powder in small amounts.

On the Thumlers, put about 4 drops of Mobil 1 0W20 synthetic motor oil on each end of motor in the little openings on top of each end. You will never burn it up.

You want the clear plastic belts for the. The black rubber ones don't hold up long so when you guy extra from Thumlers you want clear plastic belts.

When not in use raise the axle out of the recess and take the tension off the belt. Belt should last for years properly cared for like this.

My pins are dumped back in tumbler and lid left off. They will not rust if they are the right pins.

When cases come out of rinse I put them on black towel and lay them out in the sun to dry all day. In winter I put in box with 40W bulb and let them dry over night.

Stilly,
Just wanted to let you know that I bought two bags from you a little while ago and let my cousin use them in his extreme tumbler.
He was really impressed with how easy they were to manage. They did not stick to the sides of the barrel. They did not stick the the paper towels that we placed them on to dry after polishing the brass.
He said that he would probably use his small pins one more time, just to remember how much mess they make, before getting a couple of bags from you.
Thanks for a great product.

That is always good to hear. Thank you for sharing. I apologize for not answering sooner, I rarely read this thread, although I copy the location every month or so...
