The Lyman Cyclone Rotary Tumbler takes brass cleaning to a whole new
level. The rotary tumbling action combined with the stainless steel media and
liquid cleaning solution gets brass cleaner on the outside than vibratory tumbling methods. The small stainless pins easily slip inside cases and into primer
pockets to provide superior cleaning action in these areas. Something that vibratory tumblers will not do! The large capacity drum holds up to 1000 pieces
of .223 brass and features a rubber lining to protect brass and greatly reduce
noise during operation.

Operation Instructions
There are two methods of cleaning cases when using the Cyclone Rotary Tumbler. The first is to tumble fired cases with water and solution only, before any
resizing or decapping operations. Then after cases are resized, deprimed,
trimmed and deburred; they can be tumbled a second time with water, solution
and pins. This will remove case lube from the brass, clean the primer pockets
and the inside of the cases, as well as polish their outside surfaces. The advantage to this method is that the initial cleaning will remove the bulk of the dirt
from the cases, as well as remove lube and further polish the cases in the second
step. It will also reduce the total time needed when tumbling cases. A 15 minute
initial cycle will be all that is needed to remove the bulk of the dirt from the
brass. Then after resizing, tumbling with pins will only require another ½ hour
to 1 hour tumbling time (depending upon how much brass is placed in the
bowl). You will however need to dry the cases twice with this method. If using
this method, you can disregard the step concerning the use of the media pins
in the instructions below during the initial cleaning cycle.
The second method would be to removing spent primers from your fired cases
first, and then tumbling them with water, solution and media pins. This will
allow the primer pockets to be cleaned and any dirt or grit removed from the
cases before reloading. It will also give the cases a bright, uniform polish. The
Lyman Universal Decapping die is a perfect tool for removing spent primers.
The advantage to this method is that only one tumbling cycle is needed. The
disadvantage is that you may need to tumble case for 1 to 3 hours, depending
upon how many cases are tumbled at one time.
The instructions below describe tumbling cases with stainless steel media pins.
1. Stand the drum on end and remove the end cap.
2. Add dirty, deprimed brass to the drum. A load that fills ½ of the drum will
provide optimum tumbling results. This level will provide that fastest
cleaning and best polish. Do not fill the drum more the ¾ of its height with
the cases, as the tumbling action will be reduced.
3. Add 2.27kg (5 lbs.) of stainless steel media pins to the drum.
4. Fill the drum with water so that it covers the cases.
5. Add 1 ounce of brass cleaning solution. Lyman Turbo Sonic/Rotary Case
Cleaning solution works great in the tumbler.
Lyman Product’s Cyclone Rotary Tumbler Instructions Manual
6. Place the end cap onto the drum and tighten securely. Turn over the drum
so that the end cap is facing down and check for any leaks. If any are found,
tighten the ring further. If leak persists, remove end cap and wipe off the
top edge of the drum and the sealing gasket inside of the end cap. Dirt or
debris on these surfaces can cause leaks.
7. With the tumbler base turned off, place the drum onto the rollers.
8. Turn the timer knob to the desired run time and the machine will begin to
rotate the drum. It will automatically shut-off when the set run time is
reached. Generally, if the drum is full or nearly full, a longer run time will
be required versus a lower quantity. This is because a full drum will have
less tumbling action than one that is not completely filled. We recommend
the bowl be ½ filled for best action. Usually 1 to 2 hours would be required
for a half load and 2 to 3 hours for a full load.
9. When the tumbling cycle is completed and the unit shuts-off, remove the
drum from the base and take it to a sink, along with the two supplied sifter
pans. Note: DO NOT leave cases soaking in the cleaning solution after the
cleaning cycle is completed as they can
become discolored.
10. Stack the large screen on top of the fine
screen pan, and place the assembly into
the sink.
11. Remove the end cap from the drum and
pour the contents of the drum into the
stacked sifter pans. The cases will be
caught by the top sifter pan, while the
fine screen pan will catch the media
12. Refill the drum with water several times
and pour into the sifter pans. This will
help remove and pins still inside of the
drum, while also helping to wash out
pins inside of the cases.
13. Run additional water over the cases
while agitating the cases to remove additional pins inside of the cases.
Lyman Product’s Cyclone Rotary Tumbler Instructions Manual
14. Note: the Lyman Case/Media Separator also does an excellent job separating the pins from the cases. The water and pins in the Separator base can
then be poured into the fine screen sifter pan to retrieve the pins.
15. Once the pins are separated from the cases, lay the cases on a towel to dry.
The use of a blow dryer will speed to drying process.
16. Media pins should also be dried in a similar fashion before storing them
for future use. Pins can be used repeatedly without any loss of cleaning action.
