Rotary Tumbler size for Spectre II Baffles

Post by Hillside » Wed Aug 31, 2016 12:14 pm

I would like to start using a Rotary Tumbler and stainless steel media for cleaning my Spectre II Baffles, but I would like to know if rotary tumblers in the two 3lb drum configuration has enough capacity to clean all of the Spectre II baffles at once. It would help if I could see the internal dimensions of a drum that size, but I don't have that option. Thanks in advance.

If you're talking about one of these:

Then yes. Definitely capable of handling all 8 baffles of a Spectre II. I have used my rotary tumbler to clean all the 9 baffles of my Octane 45, which is basically a scaled up Spectre II.

I don't have the drums in front of me, but I'd estimate they're about 4.0-4.5" internal diameter, and about 4.0-4.5" internal depth. I can check exact diameters later tonight.

I use that very one to clean my Spectre II baffles. Works great.
Success always occurs in private, and failure in full view.

For what it's with, internal dimensions are 4" diameter by 4" deep.

This weekend I cleaned my Spectre baffles along with 3 Osprey pistons and the piston spring in one of those drums with 2lbs of stainless media. Worked great and plenty big enough. Only intended to run it for 4 hours but forgot about it as other tasks of the day took precedence. Finally remembered 13 hours later. Everything was REALLY clean but not damaged at all. So nice to have all the crud off the Osrey components.

Did you use any cleaning agents or just SS pins & water?

About 4/5 full of water, ss pins, and a really good squirt of Dawn dish soap, probably a tablespoon and a bit more.

I use a Thumler A-R1 for suppressor baffles including the Spectre.

I went with an Extreme Tumblers Rebel 17. Thing's big enough to hold several suppressors worth of baffles.
