Removing Plier Marks With a Tumbler
I thought I had heard from someone that the tumbler will remove little dings and marks made by your pliers on your handmade silver jewelry pieces. On the other hand, I've heard you can polish them but there is no removal of the dings. Which is true?
Susan, The tumbler will remove small burrs from the metal and will diminish the dings, but will not remove them completely. You can sand or file them out before tumbling. Also, adding a patina will help make them less obvious. As you learn not to have a white knuckled "death grip" on your pliers, the plier marks and dings will happen less and less.
