Magic of Magnetic Tumbling

     Freshmans has a unique position in the jewelry industry. We make custom jewelry pieces that we're very proud of, re-do family heirlooms to make them serviceable again, and sell tools and supplies to our collegues, students, and craft minded individuals. It is to that latter group that this will have some meaning.

     We have just gotten in a new line of magnetic tumblers. Magnetic tumblers excel at applying a shiny finish on jewelry. Because the tumbling pins are small, they're especially great at getting down into hard to reach areas. They can put a bright finish on cast crowns, as well as get into hand carved details. All you need to do is drop the pieces in, add some water and special tumbling soap and walk away. About an hour later your pieces are burnished to a shine and most times a light polish is all that's needed afterwards.

     These amazing machines were first made for production houses, large and expensive. We've had one in our shop for over a decade and it's indispensable. Finally, now they are available in a reasonable size, at a reasonable price. Come on in and we'll be glad to show you what they can do.
