tumbler gear box

Submitted by mjd on 7/26/05 at 8:31 PM. ( )

I made a tumbler and used a transmission from a old riding lawnmower for a gearbox. Works great,i also used the spocket from it.Im using a 3 hps motor its stong also it was free.It turns about 14rpms in first gear,i think in fourth it might pluck a chicken LOL. Also have reverse at about 24rpms dont know what i will use it for but i have it. Thought somebody could use this info,I didnt see it in the archives. hope it helps...mjd

If you fall asleep and over tumble a cape, you can put it in reverse.
