Brass Polishing Woes
« on: March 03, 2021, 05:46:41 PM »
Gentlemen, I keep the media separator for the stainless steel pins in the garage, and to my chagrin, a kitten we had hanging around months ago seems to have pooped in it.  I have now cleaned that media, but I find myself glad a fox later ate that particular cat.  Rotten animal...............

On the other hand, your brass has never been cleaner . . .

Actually, I have to run it again tomorrow.  You should have seen the first batch of water.  Does the word "sludge" mean anything to you?

Got rid of the EXTREMELY dirty water, rinsed the media until water ran clean off of it, and ran the brass through again today.  All is well now!
