    Hi Paul,
    Talk about making noise... I put 750lbs of steel balls and about 300lbs of glass in this bad boy and let er rip. WHAT A RACKIT ...I does a great job knocking the glass down to dust however.

    bULLDOG, WE HAD A SIMILAR DEVICE MADE FROM SCHDULE 80 24" PIPE, we would put slugs knocked out from an ironworker and tumble parts such as 1.5 angle and other little doodads, some as long as 30". It made a heck of a racket, but really knocked the burrs of and did it all by it self, the other guys could not understand why I would rather wait 1/2 for parts instead of standing in front of a grinder for 1 hour and doing a crummy job???? I think I may have to build another one....Paul

    Well, The Ball Mill works!!! I hooked the thing up (Temporarily) with a lead cord. I didn't even have the motor plate finished but the owners were up from N.Y.C. and couldn't wait to see it run. The first pic is of the motor plate with the 3hp motor and 50/1 gear reduction. The second pic is of the glass before we ground it The third and forth is of the same glass after about 1 hr of grinding. Well I hope that you have enjoyed the project.

    Hey James,
    A Ball Mill is used basicly to grind things up... Cement companys use them to grind rock into cement. The one that you see on Tanners site will be used to grind glass into dust. It will be filled with about 700lbs of steel balls and then some glass. There's a 3hp motor and 50.1 gear box that drives it. (Not Shown) By the way the little Bulldog isn't playing he's working... The funny thing is he smiles alot...

    Tackit,
    Sorry, my son makes the 102 mile ride with me about 3 days a week to Kingston where he gets to help me or the mechanics in the garage. Some days he gets to load the bins with the 745 loader. The rest of the week he has work at home to be done. Would ya believe it my wife says he doesn't play enough...
