Hey all,

How about we have a thread here for tumbling stones? wink.gif
We have been doing some and it's great fun to see what comes out in the process.

How many of you have tumblers and how have your batches been turning out?

Everyone wants to hear/see..... biggrin.gif

Here is a pic Fordtruckman sent over of he and his grandson's first batches.......Nice work guys......keep em' rollin'! cool.gif

Hi Mrs. CP,

I think those dendritic agates are from Wyoming and get their name from the Sweetwater River that is nearby.

Do those fluoresce under UV?
