cheap rock tumblers
« on: August 01, 2010, 02:44:54 AM »
  Did it again, timed out while writing.
  I've now finished ten tumblers of various sizes for us and others, and all have worked out well. D.I.Y. is a good option. I use P.V.C. for barrels, 7/16" or about 11mm. min. thickness, and U.H.M.W. or white nylon plastic [cutting board mtl. as seen in food stores] for the end caps.
   Real busy here now, ripped our one bathroom to the studs except for the pot, got new shower in and drywall up, got to get to finishing the mudding. Made a simple shower stall out back [summer here] and the perimeter drain catches the water, warm from a hose off the utility room, not at all intolerable.
   If you get serious about building, post back, and I'll be happy to help as best I can when things get done here. $80 will need some serious scrounging, but that's half the fun. You can build a much more durable unit than you can buy for the money.

Larry, relieved to hear you left the pot in situ. The wildlife might have fled if that was added to the entertainment.  ;D
Hope all keeps going well with the reno.
Keep em comin!!!

  Were anyone, or anything, peeking, it would likely only serve to even further lower property values in the area. Reno going well, but work has a way of interfering.  Larry
