I saw some short pieces laying on the shoulder of the road, scrap where a new line was going in. Stopped and asked one of the guys on the crew if I could take a couple of the short pieces, he said take anything I wanted off the scrap pile. Used it to make a underground valve box for water lines. Maybe ask around at the supply houses, maybe they can put you on some free stuff?

Take a look at one of these, the inside is lined with rubber and it makes it pretty quite. I have the FA Platinum Tumbler and I really like it, I also dry my brass in an old Dehydrator I have, cases dry overnight.

12344mag: Thanks for the links. That drum is certainly nice, but for the price I think I like the Extreme Rebel 17 barrel gutthooked recommended better since it’s rubber-lined, powder-coated and has stainless steel construction.
Extreme Rebel 17

I have already purchased a rotary Frankford Arsenal media separator. The “transfer magnet” looks like it would be rather helpful, but I thought stainless steel was not magnetic?

blindshooter: I thought the same when I saw the water utility working on the street out front the other day. They gave me a 4’ length of Schedule 80 6”, they didn’t have any scraps of 8” or 10" as they were all full length pieces, but Schedule 80 is way too heavy duty for this usage. Not to mention that the associated caps and reducers aren’t cheap to source. I’ll keep my eye out, however.

What do you need an agitator for?

I would not worry about the weight of heavier pipe if your motor has plenty of oomph. I would think sealing the unit will be your big challenge.

OregonCoot: I was thinking that the agitator would help knock around both the SS pins and the brass; otherwise, I'd imagine that the brass would just gently roll around and not get properly cleaned. No?

I believe the motor I found is a 1/3 HP, but I'd have to check to confirm that.

Friends Dad was a skilled trades worker for GM. He was huge into the antique bottle scene. I have no idea what his tumbler cost GM but it was an amazing unit. we tumbled at least a ton of brass in that thing back in the day haha. Buddy still has it and its absolutely the strongest and most expensive home brass tumbler ever built I nearly guarantee it. No doubt 4 or 5 departments were involved in it.

Some stainless steels are magnetic, it depends on it's alloy structure.

Found a 8"x18" piece of Schedule 80 today. I believe it is way too stout and heavy:
