Joe A. Posted January 8, 2012 Share Posted January 8, 2012 Greeting to all from Virginia...I have been reloading since the mid 70's and a loyal Dillon products user since day one.I have been interested in the Stainless Steel Media almost a years now. Read every posting from different sites and did some checking for available equipment. Shy of a concrete mixer,the majority of the drums only allow small quantity's of brass. Being a home hobby machinist,with the occasional fit of madness,I decided to made a drum with the capability of 500 plus 5.56 cases. For general info about the drum,it is a piece of utility PVC water supply pipe that has a internal diameter of 8 inch's with a length of 12 inches. I have been working up a photo collection that I will post to my favorite hobby machinist chat site once this monster has life. I have on hand a Dayton reduction gear drive motor that has a 1/4 HP an output rate of 5.6 R.P.M.'S. My logic is to have the brass rolled and tumbled by internal baffles inside the drum. Now I am not sure if the R.P.M rate will be slow and extend the run time needed to accomplish a desired cleaning. I can make an external gear combination to get whatever final drum rate. So my question to anyone that has a working liquid system,what is your approximate drum rotation rate. Thank you to all that may reply...My best wishes to all from Virginia.JoeA Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
