We've all seen the wheeled frame that guys use when building horizontal offsets, to rotate the tank during fabrication. What if one set up a drum on wheels like that, with a flat belt between the strengthening ridges? And set up a motor with a crowned wheel below to run the flat belt.

You could load a bunch of abrasive sand, clamp on the lid, and just turn on the motor. In a day or two I bet the inside would be clean. If you added a little water and dishwashing detergent it would also probably be shiny.

Anyway, especially in the hot weather, it would be a lot easier than grinding or sandblasting, seems to me.

Interesting idea, but to me it sounds like the rock tumbler- polishing process. The aggregate & rocks seem to wear down more than the tumbler. Good luck with the experiment...

Or you could just pay $60.00 and buy a reconditioned drum without a liner! Wink
