I was hoping you’d say I got a bad batch. It’s a chore unloading, cleaning and reloading 7 tubes. LOL

I know, I only got 1 tube & it's a chore unloading, cleaning & reloading. Non Tumblers are not aware of this. LEON.

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?
I was having a problem with haze coming back after a five day run. I inquired and was told it was a dry run, that is I did not have enough water in my mix.
All I really use is the 1500 grit. I have since made sure I got as much water in the bottle and canister as possible and the results have been much better. Rarely do I have haze anymore.

How many days do you tumble with the 1500? LEON.

More Water means Less Copper, Question, so on outside of Bottle how much Copper do you use, enough to go up 1/4 way of Bottle, Half way? 3/4 way? LEON.

What grit or compound did you use? LEON.
I left 2 going from the ones I was complaining about yesterday. That’s 1500 guess I needed 6 days. No haze and I think beautiful. I’m gonna throw 6 more sodas on tonight and gonna do a blue and brown one and see how they come out. This is trial and error I guess, but I’m having fun.

I'm confused, so your saying you ran 5 days & had haze but now after 6 days no haze? is that what happened? LEON.

That’s correct, I took 4 out last night that were still dull and a little frost like. Tonight I was good. 6 days did the trick for me. I’ll follow up when I take the ones off I put on tonight
