Shucks, and I headed over your link hoping to be impressed. I thought it would be a cement truck or something.

My friend Sam has a tumbler that's an old cement mixer. It's humongous. He uses sand as the tumbling medium, and it works.

Actually, that's pretty impressive if you have the parts lying around.

Smart thinking.

Cement mixer with plastic paddles might be a really good wet media tumbler, too. I wouldn't be using sand, though. You look at pictures of Egyptian mummies and they have, if they lived long, teeth that are real white and real worn from the sand dust. I don't think I want that happening to my dies.
