    Very nice. Are there any photos of the framework you placed inside the drums?

    Thanks Toller! I "welded" two half moon shapes of .5 pvc pipe lengthwise into drum. Just sliced a short length, about 4 inches long, lengthwise of the .5 pvc pipe. I welded it in with hot air but epoxy would work too I think. They are about 180 degrees apart. But only one would probably work, it just keeps the rocks tumbling as opposed to sliding in the drum.
