    Where did you get your media?

    That seems to be the most expensive part at the moment.

    I hear what your saying deye223.

    Asked a guy at a Queensland gun shop "Can I see that rifle over there?"

    He said yep, You got a gun licence?

    Sure have I said and handed over my NZ licence.

    He said sorry mate I can't give it to you to hold, you'll just have to look at it from there.

    Pretty sad really.

    Cheers

    $140 for the drum if you made it out of ordinary down pipe that would be around $50 - $60

    now the base
    MOTOR........$95 Electric Motor Single Phase 240V 0 25KW 1 3HP 1400rpm | eBay
    RHS...............$25
    SHAFT...........$17 THIS IS BRITE STEEL
    BEARINGS.....$36
    PULLEYS........$35
    NUT&BOLTS..$8
    V BELT...........$12

    TOTAL...........$228 and the other total with 10lb of pins and my drum ready to spin $498 but with ordinary down pipe $408

    now considering the thumler (15lb) and the rebel 17 (17) are both around $520 to your door and there to bloody small

    i think this is the way to go mine (45lb)

    (..) = weight capacity including water

    and the pic is whats inside the drum



    cheers D
