People clean range brass with this type tumbler. The media is crushed walnut shells.

Has anyone ever used this method?

There were times I had wondered if this method would work on those unidentifiable coins like these

or improve on the appearance of coins like this.

Dont' do it. This method is abrasive and will probably destroy the patina, and even on bare metal you will lose details.

Thank you shanxi

I kinda figured on that but it was better to ask and perhaps in the future this post will help others too.
