T862 F672: Did you slow it down? That looks like about 80rpm when most are saying 30rpm is optimum.
Is your motor a wiper unit?
!! ROCKET !!: Man I want one!!!
Moises Koch Dias: Parabém isto é simples pratico e eficiente...
DINO X: Nice job Man....
Hans Lund: Great! What kind of polishing media?
Dart388thVFW: good job!!
Roadghost88: Great design. Very simple and effective.
G56AG: Well done!
Josh mansfield: Could you build one for me? I'm willing to pay
lazerbaconpro: Very cool video! Subscribed.
CannonMan: The max speed of the motor used was around 60 rpm we installed a potentiometer which gives us a variable speed from 40-60 rpm. About 45 is ideal for a tumbler. I don't know how fast you'd need to go for a 5 gallon bucket but you can experiment with it once you install the potentiometer.
hpfr33k: Another Question, how did you slow the motor down enough? what rpm are you runnin do you think? i was given a 3/4hp motor that runs at +- 500rpm. i want to use it even though it is way over kill. it is used on a 5 gallon bucket btw
CannonMan: All depends on how shiny you want your brass. A couple of hours gets most of the grime off but anywhere from 6-8 hours to make them shiny. The media I have been using is half crushed walnuts and half corn cobs.
hpfr33k: can i ask how long you left to tumble?
FUCTSTUDIOS: awesome idea !!! i wonder if supporting the drive axle and accounting for the angle of the bucket.... or how about place wheels underneath the bottom of the bucket.it probably would run smoother and increase the longevity of the unit
Essex mirage: Good job looking at making something similar to stonewash knife blades, well done !
Robert Senn: Good job
towerhillbilly: Nice job! Two constructive criticisms....I think it is rotating too fast and I believe that poor motor needs some air. If the back side of that enclosure isn't open you should ventilate it. The one I use currently is made from an old picnic jug and belt driven by a drill. Gonna try to get it posted.
