By hand... heck no! I would buy tumblers with different media to take them from rough to smooth and shiny. But I really dont think I want to get into it right now, didn't see enough interest to make a profit from buying all of the equipment.

Tumblers!!! I would kill for a tumbler/media/machine that would deburr my knockoffs. Last count I've done 5,000 by hand ... one at a time ... individually ... with a jewellers file....

I've tried bench sanders, Dremels with 10's different bits, and tumblers with different media.

So if you have some tumbler secret, please share!

You could put a little more aggressive media in the tumblers to deburr new parts. Check out http://www.focuser.com/atm/anodize/anodize99.html you'll find some good info on that site.

I've tried different grades, but it is such a nasty burr that something harsh enough ruins the finish.

After the harsher media, you have to use the stuff that will polish the finish back out to nice. Cant just leave it after the harsh stuff.

That makes sense... Do you have any good links for polishers and medium? I'm nowhere near a decent size city.

http://www.caswellplating.com/ should have what you need. You can also go on the web and do a search for vibratory tumblers, thats how I came up on caswell plating.

Those are the same people I dealt with for my anodizing stuff. After 6 months of troubleshooting, I discovered there was an error in their manual!!!

I don't know how many sets I anodized, stripped, and re-anodized.

Wow, that really sucks, they are supposed to be a reputable company for their plating kits too... If you dont want to deal through them, just look up the tumblers online.
