Rock Tumbling

Me and my dad have been spending the last few weeks doing some rock tumbling. Well we actually started about a year ago but the drive belt broke and it did not get fixed for a long time. It was very fun doing this project. It was especially fun to take out the rocks on their final stage, they looked so cool! Here are some pictures.

    Good Job, Steve. Sorry it took so long to see results. I know that
    the basement development got in the way of being able to stay with the drawn out tumbling procedure. I would suggest that you do a final session, before polishing, of several days in 1200 grade grit. That will give you a better finished product. Way to go Buddy,
    next thing you know you will want to take on the more serious
    aspects of being a lapidariest. Keep up the good work!!
