I can't find anything for the NatGeo Rock tumber ( I assume it is National Geographic) but I did find a site that has free instructions on how to use a tumber and hints for the best results, The site is and they have I hope the information you need. I wish I had better results.

I bought a cordless rotary tool Model No 572.610780 and I cann't get the collet nut to loosen so that I can put an accessory on it.

Did you engage the chuck lock? This is usually a button that you press gently as you turn the chuck and the pin on the bottom of the button drops down to lock the chuck. Then you hold the body and turn the check anti-clockwise when viewed from the jaws.

Best to read the instructions before you start playing. :>)

Rolling Stones Rock Tumbler - no rubber ''O'' ring

Nothing high tech here. Try it without the o-ring. If the water does not start to leak out in the first 3 to 5 minutes of tumbling you will be ok. Stop it every day to check the water level.

Set the whole thing on a cookie sheet in case it does leak when you are not watching - you don't want a bunch of rock dust and polishing grit on your table or floor in the morning.

You will not damage anything by trying it without the o-ring.

My tumbler won't turn. Tried unloading some rocks but still having a problem.

I had the same problem, The problem is that the tumbler lid is to smooth and there is no grip from the spinning wheel. I solved this problem by taking a kitchen steak knife and roughing up the edge of the tumbler where it rides on the spinning wheel. Works great now. Best of luck

I bought Chicago 80 p rotary set without instruction

Dude!!!!!! This is NOT a Chicago tool nor is it pneumatic! Chicago tools are air powered. This is a rotary tool. Looks like a very nice one at that. The world leader in rotary tools is Dremel. Although the tool you have is not a Dremel. I am going to direct you to their website as they have a great introduction to rotary tools, they explain how-to and give details on all of the attachments and what they are for. They are also explicit on safety and give detailed safety instruction. I personally have four different Dremel tools and hundreds of attachments, if you need any advice on any of things please feel free to contact me again. This will Fixya!

Polishing soft stones

lapis is a porous stone and should not be pickled if possible. The pickling solution is an acid and has soaked into your lapis and reacted quite a ways in. Next time, try painting on the solution with some care when working with porous stones. Look into some geological books for more information on the stones your working with, their porosities and reactivities. Or like when working with cloth, test out a small peice of the stone first. As for your jewelry, Im not sure if its recoverable. There is the possibility of a chemical bath or heating solving it, or possibly grinding away a LOT of the stone. You may need a chemist or more acurately, a geochemist. If your willing to experiment, I think heating will likely be your solution. Try something around 200-400 for a short time, and dont set fire to anything. Remember that the metal could melt around there depending on what you used to mount it. ::shrugs:: if your using these things, dont rely on anything like this without some research first or experimentation of your own. Get a good jewlers jem book.
