5-gallon Rotary Tumbler made from Salvage Components

In this video, I present and discuss a large rotary tumbler that I built using mostly salvage materials that I was able to get free or very cheaply. Although the video focusses on the tumbler design and doesn’t really go into its uses, tumblers like this have a variety of applications in reloading, ranging from cleaning and polishing brass cartridge cases to the grinding and mixing operations involved in making your own black powder.

Most people end up adding “agitators” to the inside of their 5 gallon buckets (usually made from PVC pipe) because everything tends to just slide around.

If you’ve got the room, that’s a cool idea. You can fit a lot of “product” inside!
