CLEANING VUGS DURING VIBRA-TUMBLER PROCESS

Hello.. Very active day ...

Ward, this one is for you ...I have a large Vibrasonic base..to which I bolt smaller barrels... I sometime have a problem with the slurry sticking to the drusy areas and in the vugs in my agate material.
Due to the "hammmereing " action of a vibra-tumbler, when going to a finer grit, I have a time removing (at times), the large bits of the previous coarser grit get lodged in these spaces..
Aside from buying an ultrasonic cleaner, is there any method of preventing this "sticking" phenomena ?? (I do use a detergent cycle if I have susceptible stones)
Any comments welcome...
