I'm looking to get one of thos vibrating polishing machines, but not sure what media to get.

What would be best to polish new nuts and bolts?

Stainless steel?

If nuts and bolts is all you are going to do I may have a suggestion for you. We bought a vibratory tumbler and have tried a few different medias, but they take so long. I am not discrediting them, I know a lot of people that get great results from them. It just takes a little more time than we want to spend on some parts. I have done some research on electro-polishing and we actually purchased a small kit and experimented with it a little. The results were really cool. We took a stainless steel striker bolt that we had turned on a lathe a "dunked" it in the solution for less that 30 seconds and it came out looking like it had been polished on a buffing wheel. I can't remember the pricing, but I think it is real comparable, if not cheaper, than a vibratory tumbler. This may not prove to be true if you start doing larger parts, but for nuts and bolts it is worth researching. I will try to get the company name that we went through and post it here if I find it.
