robert hodge: Now this is why the Govt fears us hillbillies; We see, we think it out, we kick ass.
Rebecca Ann: What a freakin awesome idea! I mean it, that is incredible! I like how your brain works :)
brewmaster95060: CHECK FOR SILVER CONTENT
Neil Caulfield: clever! I love it!

Morgan Barker: Hahaha! seriously fun video, all the way round!
F.M. Anderson: Great"" have you used it for brass cases ???
Random As Always: ha, no problem. well... they only really "looked" mutilated. Gunk and crud build up on most of them. very few were actually corroded enough were they had holes and such. I actually only built this the way I did for the laugh factor, but found out after the first run that it worked really well. Not sure if melt value would be worth it for the amount of coins I actually had that were unrecoverable.
HeadakusMaximus: Sorry, just the skeptical engineering training coming out. Great use of a treadmill and old tires! Gave me a bit of inspiration.
Another question, since those coins are "mutilated" is it now legal to melt them down for their metal content? Excepting the zinc ones their face value might be less than the worth of the metal they are made of. Just an idea...
Random As Always: Although I doubt this is a serious question, the answer is none. There was no noticeable increase in my electricity bill. Considering I ran roughly $100.00 worth of change per load for 2 hours, the treadmill would have to use vastly ridiculous amounts of power.
