Our media separators are best value in affordable reloading equipment. They fit conveniently on top of most 3 1/2 or 5 gallon buckets. Each has enough capacity to hold a case tumbler's worth of brass and media and the perforated bottom lets the media fall through, leaving clean brass behind.

When I first opened the package I got the feeling this was a bit flimsy but after you put it together it is definitely strong enough to handle any amount of brass you can reasonably put in it. As others had stated your going to want to screw or somehow fix the tumbler mounting brackets to the bucket or else theyll move while your tumbling, causing a good bit of frustration so just go ahead and do it first just to get it out of the way. If your going to wet tumble your brass this and the magnetic separator are a must. I thought I could use my Dillon tumbler since it worked so well for dry tumbling but that resulted in stainless steel media flying everywhere, wasting a lot of water, and a lot of headache. Spend the extra $50 on the tumbler and separator its well worth it. Also you can find the Frankfort arsenal tumbler on walmart.com for about $150 instead of $200+ on amazon
Awesome and cheaper. Great if u dry tumble. I was tumbling over 100rnds a few times now and was worried the media would stay in the cleaned shells, but no..plus u can keep the used media in the bucket to reuse again. I thought it would be bigger but it's compact. There is a small learning curve on tumbling..start slow first and then u can speed up..and then change directions...it is loud though so uas want to do it outside. But afterwards, everything gets stored in the bucket for next use!
I bought this since I was tired of sifting the brass from the media using a colander over a bucket. The flaps that keep media from flying out like to come loose, the clasps that grip the basket don't hold the basket in place well at all, and the whole thing is barely worth continuing to use. If you are looking for the cheapest way to separate the polishing media from your brass and are willing to put up with the "cheesyness" of this design then this may work for you. I will just say there are WAY better options out there than this thing. I'm starting to find this is just a very hit or miss brand name.
Edit to add: I no longer even use this thing. It was a pain to use. Everything I originally complained about it just became sucha chore that when I had the money I replaced it. It's a great idea that is poorly executed. The notches that are supposed to hold the basket are the worst issue. I found it easiest to just turn the basket buy rolling the basket by...
