I recently read about that on a website that will sell plans for $30. It was Digger Odell or SHA, I can't recall. Check them out.

Harbor freight has a 6lb tumbler that is long enough to tumble a bottle. I think it runs about $54. Cut a 4" tube to length and seal. Cheap to make.

$30 for just the plans is ludicrous in my opinion. Just take a dual barrel rock tumbler, and use a Clorox tube as the barrel. Check out the Adventure Archaeology Youtube channel, they have one, and they show how they built it as well.

They're a nice bunch of guys too. I've emailed Clayton many times, and I even got a bottle off of him. Brandon is very knowledgeable too.
I just wish they would step by step directions on how to build the cylinder cause iam not an engineer or have a mechanical bone I'm my body lol .I just love thise bottle diggin stuff I dont even l know what i have i just digg and if I like it I keep it . It kills me that i dont know anything about my bottles like year or rarity which I'm positive i dont have any rare ones lol.i have a general idea of most there ages but alot of them i dont .
