Tumbling Rock

Posted July 14, 2010 By Admin

Half the fun of rock tumbling is in the search for suitable rocks that will polish beautifully.  You can find these in a variety of places such as the beach, rivers and creeks, etc.

In short, whenever you are in the Great Outdoors, you should be keeping your eyes open for good tumbling rocks.  However, we have been asked many times if we can supply tumbling rocks for those just starting out in the hobby.

So in response to this demand, we are now very pleased to announce that we offer mixed colour rocks for you to try your hand at tumbling. Offered in 2 convenient sizes suitable for the most popular 3 pound barrels:

Just letting everyone know that our website AND the forum will be down for a short while.

We’ve just moved over to the new dedicated ip so it may appear as though our website has disappeared until the DNS updates across the web.  If you are in a hurry to access the site, you can flush your DNS to force your computer to look up the revised ip by following these instructions.  Otherwise, your ISP should clear the DNS cache within a few hours and we’ll be visible again without you having to do anything.

We’re working in the office, so you have queries or want to make an order, just give us a call on 1800 50 21 40.
