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!

Rex Morgan: Very nice. Great explanation. And it seems to work well.

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.

CannonMan: @nadbooker 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.

DaveInKilleen: Simple and effective! Nice media seperator, also.

Jeffrich308: Great Job!

Kodiak Firesmith: You should sell these. I'd pay for a hand-built tumbler like this rather than some POC made-in-China tumbler.

Robert Senn: Good job

gpruitt54: Dude, that is fantastic. What a great idea.

lazerbaconpro: Very cool video! Subscribed.

jbmortensen: Sweet!

trialen: How many RPM is the barrel doing ?

reloader308: nice very nice...thinkin i am gonna build something close to this

sqc281: great stuff man! im going to have to try this, im on a definite budget and can only get presses and dyes. Thank you again in advanced!

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.

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: @mrmidnight32 It didn't cost us anything because we had everything somewhere in the garage, but if I had to guess it would maybe cost around $40-$50. I hope that helped.

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

survivaleveryday: Very cool... I will have to make one....

lickidysplitfilms: amazing!!!

Canadian359: What is the motor off of?

CannonMan: @sqc281 No problem. Let me know if you have any questions.

CannonMan: 45-50

gravediggermax: pretty kewl job u have there. would do a great job on all these cruddy pennies from the sea

Enki Callosa: clever. how much it cost you overall?

CannonMan: @396Diesel GD120 DC Geared Servo Motor

jaimeoops: Excellent work!

hpfr33k: can i ask how long you left to tumble?

nadbooker: How long do you tumble for?

CannonMan: @arcades687 I didn't try them without the agitators so I wouldn't know, you can experiment. The bucket is holding up quite well.

CannonMan: @fonitrus It has run for hours and hours and no problems yet.

Rockersm123: Nice.

mogeroithe: Not bad for a Yankee! Not bad at all! (Luv the accent)

Essex mirage: Good job looking at making something similar to stonewash knife blades, well done !

red281gt: Now that's using your R.E.D.! For those who don't know what that means, it's your Redneck Engineering Degree! awesome work man!

Hiete Wizzard: love the jesus picture in the back

fonitrus: thats awesome. I wonder if the shaft should be carrying all the weight like that. long term might be a stress issue. maybe add another pair of wheels to support the back and take the weight off the shaft.

sucessor de dojosai: good idea my friend, I will make one for me to be used in jewelry FABIO MORETTI -SÃO PAULO-BRAZIL

CannonMan: It didn't cost us anything because we had everything somewhere in the garage, but if I had to guess it would maybe cost around $40-$50. I hope that helped.

echotron: Very nice simplified engineering and woodworking ... thanks for posting.

Josh mansfield: Could you build one for me? I'm willing to pay

CannonMan: It's a GD120 DC Geared Servo Motor.

nadbooker: Cool!! I have an old motor in my garage doing nothing. Thanks alot for the tip!!

aacsteveo: I bought an old icecream maker made by sears at a thrift store for five bucks. Took out the center paddle, filled it up, and turned it on the side. So basically works just like yours. Great vid, thanks

BigAgitator: very nice!
