Has anyone tried polishing WSF polymide yourself?
I'm going to be polishing 50-100 parts each month, and am looking to buy a small 10-12" diameter vibrating tumbling machine like the ones you can find on alibaba or here http://www.therockshed.com/tumbler3.html

But I'm not familiar with the polishing media. I know that the 3D print services uses ceramic, but there are different shape, sizes, and types.

I've seen balls, triangles, 1mm to 12mm diameters, and non-abrasive, abrasive types.

Does anyone have a clue about what's best to use?

Thanks
