Trommel V2 12-5-12

Picked up an old secondhand concrete mixer from Stocky’s today. This is almost an antique mixer with a barrel that has parallel sides unlike more modern ones that have tapering sides to hold the wet concrete in better. I intend to cut large rectangles out of the barrel and replace that with heavy mesh. I should then be able to simply run the mixer, shovel in the compost and the fine materials should fall through with the coarser stuff, including stones and bones, staying in the barrel. When the build up is too big I will simply tip out the coarse material on the other side by swinging the emptying arm over.
