I don't know if I'd like that Idea, For me I put a specific amount of Copper, Cleaning Compound & Water in both the inside & outside of Bottle. If open & flowing in & out that could upset the balance of these specific amounts, meaning you got to much of something inside or outside or maybe not enough inside or outside. BUT, give it a try & tell me how it works out? LEON.
What you say makes sense Leon and I never thought of it that way. If I remember correctly, I was told to use the smaller three prong stopple when tumbling blobs, something maybe of holding it better but not for the flow reason. I don't remember who told me. Actually I have been getting the same results using either stopple.

What the jar doctor said is that it allows the neck and lip on the internal part of the bottle to be cleaned. He said load just like you normally do. I still have yet to get a tracking number yet so haven’t got my package yet. I was thinking the same thing but the machine is level so who knows. Hope I didn’t waste my money. I have extra bottle stopples so good either way

Ah, that sounds familiar, I believe that was what I was told when I purchased an extra set of stopples. I use my smaller three prong stopple on all my bottles now. Just a tad bit easier to use also. I am sure its not a waste of money.

just did a couple little pontil bottles for a friend. He let me keep one for tumbling. I kept the one in my hand. I think his turned out better. But both tuned out ok.

The last of the Star Bottling works bottles from Houston I’m cleaning before I give the set away to my brother to make room for more local to me bottles.

Probably a stupid question, but what's the difference between tumbling a bottle and soaking it in something? Is tumbling just for more substantial build up? Thanks

Has anyone tried the 1500 compound that the jar doctor offers? I’m having issues where I’m running the bottles for 5-6 days and the bottles are still coming out foggy. I was told that it’s supposed to cut then polish the bottle. Any ideas?

Just my opinion but from my experience that is bad advise. I was told that by numerous different people & tried it & it does not work. at least not for me. From my experience is whatcha gotta do is after a couple of days of 1500 silicone carbide cutter is remove Bottle & then polish with the Aluminum Oxide to remove the Foggy Glass dulled look & shine it up. Wish somebody would of told me this Years ago. LEON.
