Hi, We got the same tumbler this Christmas. You might be able to get an manual from [email protected]
To get started though, Step 1 takes 2-4 days, step 2 4-7 days, step 3 2hrs, step 4 2 hrs.
To start day 1
1) rinse stones with water and fill barrel with no more than 8 oz of stones
2) Add step 1 course Grinding Powder
3) Add enough water to cover stones
4) tighten (snugly) cap on barrel to prevent leaking
5) Be sure barrel is clean & dry. Fit barrel into tumbler (fits correctly only in 1 direction). Cover barrel with safety dome.
6) Attach DC plug to tumbler and plug in.
7) Push on/off button
8) Push # of days button timer.

Extras
They suggest using a lubricant on the inside rim of lid to help removal.
Once you start the tumbling do not turn it off and leave it off - It will harden like cement inside the barrel.
It is loud so place it on a towel to help reduce noise and put it where it won't bother anyone.
Good Luck and Have Fun

I found the instuctions for this product at www.elenco.com There is a "manuals" link on the left hand side of the screen, and the product number is EDU-36793 Rock Tumbler. It is for a more deluxe kit but otherwise is exactly the same as the instructions we lost for the same kit you indicate. Hope this helps.

We have a rock tumbler and have lost the instructions. How long are we to tumble each stage? I assume that the sand goes inside the tumbler with the rocks. We need some directions.


Fill the barrel most of the way with stones, add coarse grit, add enough water to just cover the stones and then clean where the lid seals carefully. Seal it up and run it for a week, dump everything into a colander and rinse. Don't run that mud down your drain because it will plug it mightily, run it outside.

Do the same process with the fine grit, run it for another week and rinse and admire.

Where can i find a set of instructions for our edu science rock tumbler.


I used to have exactly that same rock tumbler. I have a bunch of polished rocks out in my garden that the kids and I made with that thing.

I don't have the instructions, but there are some perfectly great generic instructions on the geology.com web site: http://geology.com/rock-tumbler/rock-tumbler-instructions.shtml

I used these directions with great success.

My daughter received an Edu Science Rock Tumbler for Christmas but has lost the instructions. Where can we request for a new set of instructions?


Wow that is a nice one you have, it is probably quieter with the plastic cover. I use to tumble my rocks either in the basement or in an empty drawer in my dresser to sort of block out some of the noise. The one I had when I was younger was probably the first do it yourself old Smithsonian rock tumbler. I'd say that was probably one of the best gifts that I have ever received.
Well, first, you put the bag of rocks that you want to tumble in the tumbler. Make sure it only fills the barrel 2/3-3/4 full or you may have to extend polishing time.
then, usually you use the thickest to the thinnest grit in that order. You put the thickest grit in first and let the rocks tumble from 7-10 days (for optimal polishing). You will do this for each grit you use.

Make sure there is no grit transferred from one step to the next. Hope this helps :)

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.
