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.

Frankford Arsenal Wet/Dry Media Separator

I apologize for my somewhat cynical humor in this video.

This is a good product, as Frankford Arsenal makes some really nice products, and hopefully my video does it justice.
