Tumbler Size Options

Posted March 9, 2015 By Admin

We are often asked about sizes of the various tumblers in our range. While information about barrel/bowl dimensions is included in the listings, it can be a bit confusing to compare between them. So we have put together a chart which outlines the dimensions and volumetric capacity of the most popular sizes.

Note that we do list volumetric capacity in the chart as well as physical dimensions.  While almost all tumblers are described in terms of weight capacity (usually in pounds), this rating usually includes the weight of the bowl or barrel and can be influenced by a range of factors.  We find that it is more sensible to think in terms of volume (described in Litres) or available space with consideration taken not to overload the motor.

Whether you are tumbling rocks, rifle brass, or another material, just work out the batch size as it relates to the effective capacity of the barrel.  You can use a kitchen jug to help visualise the space taken up by a volume in litres.
