    As far as I can see they are a variant of the wet tumbler cleaners albeit an expensive version.
    You would get the same results with a normal rotary wet tumbler.
    I have one of these (got it some time ago when it was a lot cheaper!)

    And a mate has one of these. And is very happy with it

    A bit of googling and it looks like snake oil to me.

    They are very vague about how this actually works other than a waffly claim that the needles are "powered" by magnets and the granting of an "intellectual patent". Magnets do not release power so this is sales puff rather than any scientific claim. No subastantiation whatever regarding the "electromagnetic" mentioned in it's title (Neodymium magnets are NOT elecromagnetic).

    They do not state who granted the "intellectual patent", but note that this is different to a patent and again reeks of snake oil

    Wording and phraseology is not normal English nor American and I would suspect a translation.

    Have been completely unable to track down the manufacturer but it might be Shooting Technology in Italy.

    I have no doubt that they kit does clean cases but IMO wet tumbling with stainless steel pins will work as well at a fraction of the price.

    For that price itís worth a punt especially if it has the media (steel/ ceramic) with it 👍

    Had one for over 5 years now, brilliant piece of kit.
    You have to go through a bit of a learning curve and understand how to get the best from it, but I honestly wouldnít be without it.
    I reckon Iíve cleaned in excess of 50,000 cases of alll types (itís amazing how many friends youíve got when they know about it.
    Itís much, much, quicker than a vibratory cleaner.

    Incidentally, £100 is very cheap. I think I paid £400 when I bought mine new, and theyíre over £500 now.

    I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy!
