I would’ve thought the cream and sugar would make it stickier ;) :lol:

Coffee, like tequila should NEVER be mixed with any pollutants.

I just throw mine in the tumbler.

Wet tumbler? Steel pins?

I think I would be cautious putting a carefully machined brass, bronze or aluminum carrier block into a tumbler with ss pins.  Given long enough or enough cleaning cycles, it WILL have corners rounded off and  reduced dimensions that will alter its fit and travel in the receicer.  Speaking as a jeweler,  don't underestimate the amount of material that can rapidly be removed in a tumbler.
