Sandy Cameron asked : How would broken up car windows work as a tumbling medium? A: Any crushed glass will work just fine. I used same type of glass in the cement mixer and it was ok. At the risk of being attacked for spreading VOO-DOO nonsense.Here is my version of the all time best all around most practical and best dollar for dollar. TUMBLER setup.: Get a wringer washer --- and put the tumbler drum on the rubber rollers. there is no modification needed. Just remove the top part. I got mine in 1963 and it is sitting outside all year --- and still works. They have an oil filled gearbox and 1/3 HP motor. This one is a THOR (Eaton's ?) and it is made like a brick crapper. Originally my intentions was to mix paint. Worked like nothing else. But it works equally well for turning a tumbler drum.For paint I throw a handful of balls in the can. The finest (best) media for c-rusty bolts get old carborundum stones and crush with a sledge.Would you believe I got my carborundum from a 26000 HP grinding stone setup ? ---put your money on the line. From great northern grinders --- ask NORTON. Norton makes some great abrasives for guys like us ( I own no stock ) They are sold at Wal-Mart as ???? sponges ? try one they are 1" X 4" X 2.5" blocks of foam. Old paintcans makes good el'cheapo drums for tumbling. Hagar.
