    I posted an add in wanted, but not much luck,I'm looking to buy a large tumbler with at least a 6' drop , not the 55 gallon size ,I was planning on making one but trying the easy route 1st, if anyone has something ,shoot me a pm and I will get back to you I'm located in Wisconsin .
  2. I am currently making a 6' dia x 4' wide tumbler. Relatively easy and so far have about 700.00 into it not including my time. I looked around for a turn key tumbler an did not want to spend the 6,000 to 7,000 dollars plus shipping/freight. You can customize to your needs and there is a wealth of information on here and many are willing to help. If you are interested I can send you some pictures.

  3. Any interest SWB?

    I'm all ears ,let me know
  5. The tumbler is 6’ DIA and 4” wide with a 3’ access door. The frame is 2”x2” square tubing and is powered by a 1 hp motor coupled to a 15:1 heavy duty speed reducer. The drum will turn a 19 RPM. I will add some pictures tomorrow.
