    After years of (ab)use, my faithful case brilliantizer has gone to see God.

    What inexpensive machine should I replace it with?

    I use a Lyman Turbo sonic, the single transducer model, I wasn't sure how I was going to like it but after 10 years of cleaning my cases, I must say it works well for me.
    I dry them under an inferred heater then dry tumble them for about 1/2 and they look like new again.
    They are about $115.00 so I don't know if that qualifies as cheap, but it is compared to the dual transducer models.

    a lot of guys have had good luck with the chinese ebay ones, the name brand one are made there any way and are probably made in the same place. these are 1/2 the price you can get some pretty big one much cheaper then the name brands. i have not looked much in to the ebay one's but see good reviews.

    I've got the small Hornady model. I use it for cleaning parts rather than brass and it does a good job. I picked that model because it came with a free brass dryer. Might look around for that combo if you need a brass dryer too.
