Concrete mixer as wet tumbler - Gunloads

May 21, 2016  5,430. The HF mixers make short work of massive amounts of sorted brass, but unless you need the volume, an STS tumbler (site vendor) with their pins is both sufficient and economical. Running the cement mixer with a small load will peen the brass excessively because of the distance of free fall of the brass.

I keep seeing folks using wet tumblers and got to thinking about making it big time. I've also been reading on some folks that have had high lead levels in their blood linked to the dust from dry tumbling. But I'm having trouble justifying $150-200+ for a glorified rock tumbler - why not grab a 1.25 ft^3 cement mixer for about the same price and use that?

Harbor freight has one for $150 that holds 1.25 cubic feet, and if my math is right that's over 180 pounds of concrete, so it should do fine for pins and brass. They sell a larger 3.5 cubic foot one for $210 that will do over 320 pounds of concrete.
