Re: Re: Re: Rock crushing
The only way I know to break up rocks for my tumblers is to use a 2 pound hammer and place the rock on a section of rail road tie about a foot long. Now I made a box about 2 foot square with about a foot to three high sides on 3 sides. Place a old rug or something over the top back section to help keep rocks in the box. Now i'm not breaking anything over 8 inches in size. I put on a full face sheild, gloves and long sleve shirt. Now you don't want the rug to block your hammer. I have a couple 5 gallon buckets ready for the tumblers. Hope this helps John.
You may check with some rock shops to see if they have a rock crusher and if they will break up rocks for you. George
