After having quite a few stores and banks refuse the dirty coins I have been searching for an easy way to clean them as wire brush on each coin is very time consuming. Tried out the rock tumbler with the stainless shot media and presto. The goldies only require an hour or so but the 5, 10, 20 and 50's require a little longer maybe 2 to 3 hours but thats from barely readable to clean again.1473468985_dsc00278.jpg 1473468998_dsc00252.jpg1473469032_dsc00197.jpg

Dirty coins are good for parking meters if you have them in your district! wink

Yeah I don't have or use anything here in North Queensland that requires a coin operated machine. The only bank that has a coin counting machine is the Commonwealth Bank and I am not a customer.

That's a neat looking machine, any idea on how much they cost? I built my own quite a few years back, it can handle large containers, and I can use any electric motor on it. At the moment, it has a washing machine motor, way overkill, but can handle heavy loads easily. will put a pic up when I figure out how.

The commonwealth banks around here have 2 types of counting machines, the ones in the wall are no good and jam up easily, I know from an embarrasing experience smile, the other type are more industrial looking units that are bolted to the floor, I've put some really crappy looking coins through the big ones and hardly get any rejects, it just gobbles them up. big_smile

Looks like the tumbler has done a great job on them mate.
