About four years ago, I bought a Hornady Case Tumbler. It was great up until about four months ago when for some unknown reason, the Bowl began to separate at a seam that runs all the way around the outside. I called Hornady's Customer Service and all they said was, "Send it back to us the Cheapest way you can find." I sent it to them in the Mail, Parcel Post. It was about 6 days after I sent them mine when I received a Brand New Unit by Priority Mail. There was No Hassle, Nothing, other than their Warranty says "send it back, we'll replace it!" Exactly what they did.....!!! For this reason alone, I would have to recommend a Hornady!!!! You might want to look at one too!

I bought a Midway (after my Lyman crapped out) for half the money, and so far it has lasted five times longer.

I'm not a real expert on this subject but I have owned a tumbler for years and have had good service but I think that most (a lot) rock polshers, now go with the vibrator type polishers. I think the vibrator type cleaners are supposed to be faster too. you might want to check out the lapidary sites. Tom

Thanks everyone for your time and help. I think I will go with the midway tumbler because you get the whole kit for the price of some other tumblers. Thanks again

If you have a friend with an FFL, he/she can get it for you at a discount. It at least will save you most of the shipping cost.
