Hi guys n gals
Last week I was driving about and saw a motorised golf cart on the side of the road for the annual council rubbish pickup. So I grabbed it and used the motor, axle and bearings to make a tumbler.
Some of the coins I have found on the beach were far too bad to spend with the green crap all over them, particularly the $1 and $2 coins.
Chucked them in this with a few handfuls of sand and in a couple of hours they were as good as new.
Just thought it might give some of you an idea for a home made one yourself.

It wasn't a buggy, pretty much a hand pull cart, but with a motor and trigger to assist. The trigger was stuffed.
I also can't play golf for S#&T, ha ha.

Golf is a very annoying game, I had lessons as a kid, but gave it away. Still hit a bucket of balls, at the practice range few times a year though.

If you use small ball bearings (a little bigger than buckshot) instead of sand you will be impressed with the shine that is put on all you tumble! wink
