    Default Parts tumbler

    I am in the process of building a parts tumbler measuring 36" long by 12" diameter. It will be powdered by a gas engine and chain driven, what I need is the drive sproket and driven sproket sizes.
    I would appreciate any help.

    That thing is going to be noisy! Why not go with a belt?

    Default Little advice?

    I haven't really seen a tumbler worth its salt other that AnCar commercial tumbling tubes. They are either too small too big and almost everyone is over priced! Making your own is O.K., but here is a little tip/advice. We bought an electric long barrel cement mixer for $495.00 filled it (1/3) with media (steel shoot, walnut shells, glass and whatever we need) and it works absolutely 100% awesome.

    A little grub for thought.

    John P I do scuba tank service all the time. I have worked as a scube service tech for about 4 years. I used to run 2 tumbers non stop around this time of year. What do you want to know? Here's mine that I posted for troye on welding web.

    if youre bent on using chain and sprockets, try a farm supply place. A Co-Op or the like. These guys seem to have all that kinda farm stuff on hand. I thing the belt is better too. more forgiving easier to source out, if something goes wrong the belt will break rather than tearing hte rig apart (potentially)

    Or look in the phone book under chain and sprockets..
    Will it weld? I loooove electricity!

    no need for a chain on something like that.
