Cool. I thought the frame would not be strong enough after removing that much material. Can I see a picture of your modification? Did you enlarge the shafts to accommodate the bushings on the end? I have one thats why I ask.

A photo and an explanation of what you did would be of great value here if you are willing to share what you did.!!!

We drilled a hole at the end of a harbor freight tumbler to tumble the inside of a bottle. I did a 2 inch, should have done a 3 inch. I used a Diamond hole saw. I posted a picture on page 6 of this thread. Open canister with the neck of the bottle sticking thru the hole.

I got 4 more new tubes ordered from jar doctor. I don’t like the stopples my machine came with so only been doing 3 at a time. They Flynn didn’t come out like the other 2. Did them all the same

I was wondering what stopples everyone is using to tumble hutches and blobs.

I use Jar Doctor Stopples. I've noticed not all Bottles come out the same even if done the same way. I guess from what I hear some bottles have harder or softer glass then others that could affect the outcome? LEON.
