Faster than a rotary tumbler, the TV-5 vibratory tumbler included in this kit gives you smooth, shiny gemstones in just a matter of days - not weeks. And unlike rotary tumblers, this polisher leaves the stone's original shape intact. You can add these polished stones to your rock collection, or even use them to make your own DIY jewelry or keychains!

Perfect for kids just dipping their toes into rock tumbling, this complete starter kit takes you from the unboxing to the reveal in about 14 days. While the Raytech TV-5 tumbler is hailed by hobbyists, its results are (ahem) polished enough for light commercial use.

This complete starter rock tumbler kit includes:

  • Tumble-Vibe TV-5 vibrating rock tumbler with 4-pound rock capacity
  • 2 pound of rough, unpolished rocks (like agate, jasper, and others)
  • 3-Stage polishing grit, to polish ~3 pounds of rock
  • HST full-color rock tumbling guide, 12 pages
  • Operation manual for TV-5 with mass finishing tips

The Included Raytech Tumble-Vibe TV-5 Rock Polisher:

  • has 115V, 60 Hz motorized base
  • offers a range of rock tumbling and metal finishing options
  • has an 8-inch bowl with a solid lid
  • has a capacity of 0.05 cubic feet (3 pints or 4 pounds)
  • holds 25 ring castings with media, or will process about four pounds of rock
  • is faster than a rotary rock tumbler, giving you smooth rocks in just a matter of days (not weeks!)
  • is a favorite of hobbyists

While this kit focuses on using the Tumble-Vibe TV-5 tumbler to polish stones, it has other applications, too. You can use this vibratory rock tumbler for polishing metal and plastic parts, cutting radii on sharp edges of metal parts, deburring machined metal and metal stampings, and descaling metal castings.

Please Note: Using this tumbler with steel or ceramic media is not recommended.

Learn the basics of rock tumbling with the included full-color guide. Topics you'll discover are:

  • an intro to rock tumbling,
  • the science behind it,
  • the rock hardness scale,
  • how to use a vibratory tumbler,
  • how to use a rotary tumbler,
  • erosion science experiment ideas,
