Introduction: Homemade Vibratory Tumbler
Hello everyone this my first video and instructable
(i dont have time yet but when i spare some i will make a step by step instructable!)
You Will Need :
1 AC universal motor of about 1500-2000 Watts from a electric vacuum cleaner
1 speed controler for AC electric motors
1 piece of cylindrical aluminum 100mm wide 40mm high lathed as seen in the video
2 buckets (1 to mount to the tumbler )
2 pieces of plywood 30X30 cm
1 piece of plywood 30X40 cm
2 pieces of wood 30X7X3
4 springs ( personaly i used springs for the motor clutch of scooters)
8 pieces of steel sheet 2-3mm wid cut into 40X90 mm
4 nuts, bolts and washers to mount the motor tou the plywood
8 nuts, bolts and washers for the springs
screws for the woodw
Tools You May Need :
drill with cobalt end for the steel plate
metal grinder/cutter also for the steel plate parts
saw for cutting wood
spanners for the bolts
a compass ( to draw a circle where the motor will sit)
Now About The Construction :
I personaly made it for cleaning and semi-polishing pebbles or cleaning metal parts
This type of motor will be found in vacuum cleaners only ! i specificly use them because usually they have a wider top witch you can drill and attach to the plywood !
The aluminum part was lathed so it sits on to the motor axis with a bolt ,i had 2 internal threads done on either side so you can ajust the amount of vibration caused ! (different media need different speeds and vibration frequency i assume !!! )
Here is a batch of stones before and after :
