    Mullers on eBay

    There's a pile of sand mullers on eBay right now if anyone is in the market. Not associated with any of them, but I figured I'd throw this up as there's suddenly a nice selection right now, some at decent prices

    3 Mini Mite M2 mullers:

    3500 for the Simpson? That would be a load of money for very simple and primative piece of technology. So far I have most of what I need to make one, and I think im up to about €28. Still looking for a cheap, single phase 30-60rpm gear motor though.

    Years ago I worked for a fabricator here in Central Wisconsin that made a whole line of mullers as a contract product. I didn't pay much attention to them other than they were painted green and I was the poor bastard that had to drill AR-500 armor plate for tub liners, I hated that crap.
    What is that squeaking noise?

    Hmm. The Kroeger model has a wheel that rolls on the side. I've not seen that. Would be real nice, but even the shipping is out of my price range. I need to invent a kit that adapts to a 5 gallon steel pail for cheap people like me. The Van Dorne does not look like it would work that well, but I suppose it does since people don't complain. Thanks for alerting us Rocketman, someday I will either buy or make one.
    Do I have to concede to being an adult if it means that I can play with fire?

    That's the norm for those small hobby mullers. There are also two MiniMites auctions and though they are a competing brand they are virtually identical mechanically. The mulling wheel is spring loaded and compacts sand against the outer wall and the plows scrape, stir, recirculate. They work best when they are not over or under charged with sand but the spring loaded wheel helps accommodate varying charge size and lumps.

    Best,

    I ended up buying another identical Simpson that was listed. The thing is a BEAST. The barrel and the frame is all 1/2" thick cast iron, it has to weigh over 600lbs. I'm not sure what I was expecting, haha.
