    You might be better off just buying a tumbler on Ebay. At least then you'll have it if you need more tumbling in the future.

    I’m considering ordering a system from jar doctor but I’m wondering if he’s still around.

    They’re not cheap.
    The market is kinda cornered when it comes to this, unless you build your own.

    I'm also in the market for a tumbler. What I've seen is rock tumblers modified, do a search on YouTube and you'll find some examples.

    In the bottle world, would a tumbled bottle be considered a "restored" or "non-original" surface or does it even matter to anybody? Just curious and thought this would be the right place to ask.

    It restores the bottles surface and inside by removing a micro layer of glass not noticible to the human eye. It does not disrupt embossing either to my knowledge therefore, I would not imagine it would hurt a bottle but only improve it.
