Parts tumbler

14 posts in this topic

If I want to tumble small stuff, like rifle brass, I just put a smaller tumbler inside this one, sealed up with it's own media.

It's not completely finished. Too cold to paint anything so it will look decent, and I have some wide belting to coat the inside with for noise reduction. I'll get it this spring.

Crushed walnut, AKA ferret bedding, mostly, but anything works to it's ability. Regular sand I use as well. I have some ceramic pellets I haven't tried yet. Back in the sixties I worked at a place where we polished chain with sawdust, iron beads, and pieces of leather all in the same tumbler.

The rubber rollers are nothing more than rollers off a boat trailer, found at any marina. They already have a 5/8 inch hole thru them. Get the foot long black rollers. Cut them into sections with a hacksaw or band saw. I lathed a groove in the middle of each piece where the drum rib rides to keep the drum from walking. I did that with a sharpened chisel as it ran. Those rollers are like 12 bucks and I only bought 2. I also spot welded a washer on the shaft for each end on a couple of the rollers to keep them from walking.
