    I saw that 18" sprocket too...only problem is the bore size...I guess it might work to expand the bore size myself though.

    Here's one that might work nicely on a 18" pipe https://www.rollerchain4less.com/80S...le_p_3107.html

    Here's one that would work on a 20" pipe https://www.rollerchain4less.com/60S...le_p_3079.html

    This has some ideas Trommel Drives

    I do like the idea of having one laser cut or water jetted and instead of a big gear ring have a bunch of 20 tooth segments that bolt on cut out and a ring for them to bolt to. If you loose a tooth you aren't replacing the whole gear.

    The idea of a driven roller or even a rear axle and transmission driving it seems like a good idea. If you use the right trans and rear end parts should be plentiful and easier to come by than odd ball industrial stuff.

    Mining is how I make my living. I turn mountains into dust on a daily basis.

    Everyone is focused on finding sprockets and chain. Why not use drive wheels?
    It would make this easier and cheaper

    If it can't be grown, it must be mined!

    Not sure if my old thread building a trommel if I listed where I got the sprocket. I had the tube rolled. I don't think anyone mention but you can get a 14"x 48" Propane cylinder at Loew's on sale sometimes for $100.00. 12 INCH TROMMEL BUILD
