Stoppers pulled out and 48 hours in the tumbler with the Jar Doctor's final polish.

Roy, did you make all your own tubes and stopples for your machine you built? The first tumbler I purchase was homemade and the guy cut his own tubes and made his own stopples. They were hard to use so I bought all jar doctors material. It was like buying a whole new machine by the time I was done getting what I needed

I bought the canisters, stopples and most of the copper from the Jar Doctor.
I bought a tool cart from Home Depot and most of the rest is stuff I had hanging around and salvaged from the scrap at work. I really don't know how much money I have into it... probably could have bought a new one but then I would have missed all the fun of building it. I'll try to post a picture tomorrow. Roy

Looking good. However, I'll cast additional opinion. I haven't stock piled the replacement stoppers. Most of the stoppers already in my hutches are fragile. I doubt in this situation I would tumble those unless removed. Any who...

Very cool, I have 2 homemade machines. One does 7 the other does 4 and I have a real jar doctor machine that does 6. I still have yet to clean all my personal collection. I have a couple guys that bring stuff weekly and only get to sneak in one of mine here or there.

Nice, that must keep you busy.
I only tumble my own bottles and I'm still learning. Roy

It’s almost like having another job. I was splitting it up between days but load on Sunday’s and can unload Friday after I get off work. I’ve been doing a lot of bartering so my collection has come a long way the last year and a half that I’ve had these machines. I’m loving it

Mine only does one bottle at a time. Just one is enough work, can't imagine doing like 5 or 10 or more at once? LEON.
