so i found
Some Hinges (from old cupboard)
A Plastic Barrel (found on side of the road)
A Rolling garden hose stand (had one rusting out in the yard)
Some kind of Lock (replaced deadbolt on door used old one)
A handle (this was in the garage no idea)
A hodgepodge of mis nuts and bolts (had jars of these)
Two pieces of PVC tubing the same length of the barrel (i have tons of misc PVC my grandfather collected)
Four really long screws
Some Wire (cloths hanger)
Two Really long bolts for the reattachment of the wheels
Dark colored spray paint
your own two hands
Step 1: Step One: Disassemble the Rolling Garden Hose Stand
Take all the screws out
keep the two sides the wheels and the handle , and the "gear" parts with the crank
Keep the sides the wheels the hose guard pretty much all the plastic pieces, i recycled all the metal parts and used the small hose for a floor sink.
Step 2: Step Two: Cut a Big Square in the Barrel
with a hack saw.
make it wide enough to be able to dump it all out. but leave like 2-4 inches on the sides for support
Step 3: Step Three: Attaching the Sides of the Compost Tumbler
I had to hack of the center part with a hack saw on the side your attaching to the barrel. To make it level, Then drilled a hole in each "spoke" and threaded a bolt through, then did the same on the bottom of the barrel.
Step 4: Step Four: Adding the Hinges and Hardware
Do the same with the holes in the dead bolt, and the handle.
Drill the Holes, the thread the nuts and bolts into place.
i tried to use pop rivets but the plastic was too thick, though one of the hinges held on with them.
make sure to line it all up before bolting it together, i did not and had to remount the deadbolt again.
learn from this
Step 5: Step Five: Attaching the Sides/legs and Crank
Take one of the triangles and attach it to the top i don't think they are different, so it doesn't really matter what side you use.
One side will be attached with the "hub cap" this is where the hose part came from, mine had 2 screws i just reused those.
The other attaches the triangle with a crank, also two screws reused those old ones
Now your compost tumbler has a stand, and a hand crank set it up give it a spin!
Step 6: Step Six: Attaching the Wheels, Braces, and Handle
Attaching the braces, take your 2 PVC pipes and and secure them in the bottom corers of each plastic triangle. I used a long screw and drove it thought the plastic on the one side through the PVC and into the plastic on the other side these held pretty well.
Attaching the Handle get the handle for the wheeled garden hose parts, mark adn drill four holes through the PVC pipe in the center on the one side.
Take your wire and wind it though all the holes on the handle and through the pipe,
I first used zip ties but they snapped right off.
Step 7: Step Seven: Paint and Compost
Then added some yard clipping and my lunch scraps.
And since it has wheels i can roll it right to were i want to lay my compost and open the door.
