I've decided to offer a parts tumbling service. I have a 3 cubic foot tumbling machine that is setup with angle cut ceramic for steel parts. I can do control arms, transmission mounts, brake pedal supports, tie down brackets, strut rods and smaller parts. I won't do small fasteners, the tank is too large. Tumbling gives a nice "just made" appearance to parts with a polished (not shiny) surface. After tumbling, I rinse in a parts washer that has a rust inhibitor in the cleaner. Parts are simply blown off/dried and packed up, owners can apply whatever more permanent rust inhibitor they like.
For parts already blasted and ready to tumble (glass beaded), $5 per piece, $35 minimum
For dirty/rusty parts, $35/hr + $5/per piece
I can smooth pitted areas to improve appearance, but this can be time consuming, also at $35/hr
I prefer to do parts already blasted. If anything has surface rust when it arrives, then the $35/hr cleaning fee applies.
Owner/Shop pays for shipping both ways. Mailing a return label with the parts works best. I will include return shipping in final bill if no return label provided. Owner can specify what mailing service they prefer. FedEx Ground is usually good for heavy boxes. USPS flat rate boxes for smaller parts.
Turnaround time usually less than a week.
Payment by paypal or check.
