Hi guys i saw a tumbler like this on youtube and the guy was useing it to polish empty bullet casings so I thought id use this idea for small rock's and coins

First I went and a small cars window wiper motor $22 from a wreckers yard and then I found the wood and the L brackets in the shed I also got small wheels from Bunnings $4.50 each and i got the buckets ,I also had a power supply in the so i used that to, just got to try it out now on something worthy big_smile Im also thinking of getting another motor like this one to make a small Trommell any help with this one would be great

Good little tumbler mate, if the buckets don't last long, try out just large diam pvc pipe with end caps, they seem to last a while. Noise reduction is preferred if the unit will be closeby the house or workshed to prevent headaches... lol

Looks good mate. Should do the trick. Well done...

I think AtomRat gives you some sage advice re noise reduction and the pvc pipe. Something to think about for version 2.0 perhaps.

Anyways thanks for posting.
