    No firsthand experience, just the reports and pics that I've seen here. Brass does come out looking real nice but I'm just to frugal (cheap) to make that investment.

    Yes, this is IMHO a superior cleaning process. You will no longer buy media, use chemicals on your brass, or need to clean primer pockets seperately nor pick out the kernels stuck into flash holes.:banghead: a complete inside and out cleaning takes 1-2 hours using only dawn, lemishine and water. I will NEVER go back and cannot recommend this process enough. Thumlers are known to last typically 20 years or more, a wise purchase any way you look at it. A few recipients of some of my brass lurk around these parts, maybe some will chime in.

    Thanks for the input guys. Only other concern is, will the rubber gasket material deteriorate over time and leak? Other than that I think it's a go for me!
