This is cleaning power BABY!!!!!!
For the last 3 years, cleaning the freaking coating on the dropouts before welding was a real pain in the ass!!! We tried every possible way...but most of the time it was done by students and/or our local riders on the shop grinder... real shitty job!!
But lately we were lucky enough to buy the machine we have been dreaming of for the last 3 years, a parts tumbler!!! Hehe!!!
This bad-ass vibrating machine is incredible! in 2 hours we are able to clean dropouts for 100 frames or forks. It used to be a 3 to 4 days job.
Oooo ya now were talking!
It can also do some pretty nice "ball burnished" work on aluminum parts.
