Tom’s Tumble Trimmer Overview
How it works: The weight of the buds brushing against the mesh netting and tumbling over each other gently breaks of the trim to preserve the crystals. You can control the speed of the tumbler to find the setting that works best for your buds.
Mesh nets: For maximum results, start out by using the ½ inch mesh net on the highest speed for 5-10 minutes. Then transfer the trim to the ¼ inch mesh net to trim any smaller buds that might have passed through the mesh. There is also an optional keef net that will isolate the keef from your trim. You can watch the whole process through the clear mesh bags to make sure everything is running smoothly.
Easy to clean: The nets can be washed in a washing machine and line dried. To keep the zippers from sticking, you can wipe them periodically with beeswax, Pam cooking spray or weed wipes like CAN A Wipes
