Here’s how they’ve been coming out with just the 1500

Normally I do the 1200 for about 3 days followed up with the aluminum oxide for about a day or so. That looks great!

I’m running for 5 days with the 1500. All the brown bottles I’ve done have shown the little scratches left behind. Wondering if the 1200 would take out. Have you done any brown ones yet? Any pointers?

I’ve only ever done one amber bottle and it was already in great shape. All I did was a couple day polish but I didn’t think it made that big of a difference. Sorry I couldn’t be more help.

If I did a Bottle in 1200 or 1500 it would take me more then 1 day in Aluminum Oxide to get the dull glass look out if it ???? LEON.

How many days in 1500? I tried that once for 5 days & it pretty much ruined the Bottle.
Leon, almost all the pics I’ve posted on these thread are done with 1500 for 5 days. I’ve had no embossing loss and seems to be shining just fine. I’ve had a handful I’ve had to run polish for 2 more days but I think it’s because I ran it will not much water. I have another jar I haven’t opened yet. I’ll be sure to run a test bottle to make sure it’s not more aggressive before I put anything good with it

First attempt at a round base bottle. Not from my area of interest but fun to tumble none the less. VINCENT, HATHAWAY & CO BOSTON GINGER ALE. Before and After.

Those always get me going when I am digging as I always hope for an Arto!

I just finished a set sent to me for pickup at the Central Texas Bottle Show in Round Rock here in a few weeks. Stephan Bros from Bryan, Texas Bottling Works from San Antonio, and a square coke from Huntsville. Before and After
