(Grants Pass, Oregon)--Fire Mountain Gems and Beads®, America's Favorite Beading and Jewelry Supply Company, is expanding the line of professional tools for silversmiths and lapidary artists to include the Lortone Model 3A rotary tumbler and supplies. Widely used in the jewelry industry, this tumbler can smooth and polish up to three pounds of rocks, metal jewelry or Art Clay® designs.
The patented, long-wearing rubber barrel with a water-tight seal provides extra sound absorption while delivering excellent results. Lortone tumblers are known to be quiet and capable of operating 24 hours a day for years with proper care. Illustrated how-to and care instructions are included.
For best results, use with the Lortone Rock Tumbling Abrasive and Polish Kit and a Stainless Steel Shot Mix. The Lortone 4-step kit creates a professional, high-gloss finish on hard stones. Includes enough material to polish up 12 pounds of material in four steps.
The stainless steel shot mix contains a rustproof combination of flattened ball, diagonal and pin shapes with a bright mirror finish. Known as a ''jeweler's mix,'' each shape performs a different function in burnishing the metals to create a maximum shine in the least amount of time.
The Lortone tumbler and supplies are quality made in the USA and include a one-year manufacturer's warranty on materials and workmanship.
For over 36 years, Fire Mountain Gems and Beads has been known for their exceptional customer service and product selection--over 116,000 hot jewelry-making supplies available to wholesalers, retailers and designer-artists alike.
