About a year ago, I got my son a rock tumbling kit. One of those things that the Smithsonian puts out. He liked it okay but I got hooked. Now I have four tumblers.

 

Looking for material got me interested in geology and from there to the Boston Mineralogical Club. The BMC has several field trips and so I have now about 250 pounds of rock in the shop. My wife wonders if Ill be able to tumble everything I want to in this life time. Well have to see. Here are some links:
