    Quiet Mini Ball mill, OHH soo Quiet and total cost to me was 5$

    OK so I cleaned up a lady's yard because her husband had cancer.. hauling off a ton of junk to the dump.. and she gave me this Husky mini Concrete mixer, normally new its 380$ but on Craigs-list there pretty regularly 189$ anyhoo free for a good deed!.. next i needed 2 tires (unfortunately New Mexico's ravines are full of junk and it took me 20 minutes to find 2 that would work). Took 2 tires home cut off 1 side on each tire to get the depth right, and cut them down 1 side to get them into the drum. {} inside the drum. now the reason i wanted tires in it is due to GoldTramps Drum wearing out, and mines in the back yard.. so there we were trying for quiet.. It's very quiet~! yay moment.

    I used some old Railroad tie-straps i had in a bucket (they weigh about 5 lbs) as my balls (hehe) and its turning it to paste!

    Finding GOLD
    Great idea Dusted. How long did it take to make suck large rocks into a paste? I have often thought of doing the same thing, minus the tires, just never ran into the right cement mixer. Do yours have a plastic tub, or is that metal painted?

    the Steel TUB is lined with 2 Parelli tires.. its working out very well i'm going thru about a shovel full in an hour sometimes 2.. and the tires are taking all the abuse.. there walls cover the back side of the tub and the sides..
