Another kids entry level tumbler, this time from Elenco. This is a space age looking gadget the kids will love, it is quite large in terms of its base footprint size – but also the barrel is a bit bigger than other entry level machines.
It is mains powered and has the universally unique feature of buttons on the front which allow the owner to pre-set timed tumbles in sets of upto 7 days. This is actually really handy because quite often it’s easy to forget how long a batch of rocks has been running for – and this is important when softer rocks are being worked.
The lid on the machine is completely detachable allowing you to place the barrel into position, it acts as a bit of a sound barrier and is effective to some extent, but as always – the tumbling process is somewhat noisy.
