Looking for info on Dave Maurer ceramic media?

Post by Woodtroll » Sat Oct 06, 2007 7:15 pm

Hello, folks!

I read lots of references to Dave Maurer's ceramic media, kits, etc. but can't find a source other than Shiloh, and they are not very descriptive of it. What size and configuration is his media? Where else can I find this media- can I buy it cheaper directly from him? How many pounds in a kit, and approximate cost?

Thanks for your help! Regan

Here is the link to Arizona Sharpshooters,
http://www.arizonasharpshooters.com/
they sell Dave Mauer's kits. If you have questions, give them a phone call and I'm sure you will get your questions answered. I have been using Dave's media and solution for about three years and find it the best method for cleaning after shooting with black powder.

You got him. I sell the basic 04-05 mm. media for straight cases.These include .45-70,.40-65,and straight pistol cases. Also we sell 03-03 mm. for bottle neck cases down to .25 cal. The kits for rotary tumblers with soap is $48.95 to your door. The kit for vibratory tumblers is $ 58.95 to your door. This is the original media imported from Germany, not the inexpensive domestic stuff some people are selling.

Dave: what is the difference between the "rotary media" & the "vibrating media"?

I'll ask the stupid question of the day as well. :oops:

:?: Whats the difference between rotary and vibrator stuff. I've got a Cabela's vibrator case cleaner tumbler thingy and am thinking there might be something better for it than cornmeal. :idea:

MC: I recall that thread & just re-read.

However, except for two posters, the other posters don't specifically state whose media they are using or if it is the vibratory or tumbler media.

I still wonder what's the difference??....

With a vibrator the brass must be submerged in the media and it takes more than a rotary tumbler. Our vibrator kit is 8Lbs. the rotary kit is 6Lbs.

For one Dave an I are good friend, so naturaly I give Dave a hard :lol:

At The Regional last year I wanted some more of Dave media, cleaner & patches. Well this gentleman was sitting there listening as I asked Dave for what I wanted & this is how I put it :lol: Hey Dave I need to buy media & stuff before you kick the bucket, you see Dave had a stint placed in an artery by his heart. This gentleman heard my comment, to say the least he was pretty indigent, I think if he could have gotten away with it he would have bitch slaped me :shock: :lol: :lol: & had to tell me so :roll: :lol: :lol: :lol: He calmed down when I explained to him Dave & I are friends. :D It makes for a good laugh. :lol:

I also call Dave a used car salesman :lol: :lol: :lol: Daves retired from the Olds. division of G.M., Dave knows Harry Gant one of my favorite NASCAR drivers when Harry drove.
