Default First clad tumbling run through

Hi All

Got myself a harbor freight tumbler for xmas. I had my year's clad sitting in a can and decided to try Mikey48's recipe for cleaning.

I did two batches of pennies and two batches of other clad. I am more than satisfied with the results. I even found 4 wheats mixed into the clad pennies that i couldn't discern because they were so dirty.

Here are some before and after pics for your enjoyment. The first try with silver was a little darker than i wanted so I upped the ammonia from a smidge to a double smidge and got a much shinier result. Pennies were fine on the first try. silver
