Rock crushers come in many shapes and sizes, from the strictly hand-held to the complex industrial sizes, which can crush tons of rock and ore in one day. Making your own rock crusher invariably requires you or someone you know to possess some basic welding skills. Iron is the ore of choice when it comes to breaking rocks into hand-sized pieces and a skilled or even semi-skilled welder are the only people who can shape iron. This particular kind of rock crusher is perfect for homeowners or amateur prospectors.
Quickly insert the 3-foot iron rod into the cement. Move it until it stands at the center of the pipe. You may have to prop it in place by fixing a C-clamp to it and laying the clamp on the top of the pipe. Let the cement dry -- even quick dry cement may take 4 to 6 hours to set.

HOW TO SETUP AND USE THE HAND OPERATEDROCK CRUSHER:The rock crusher is shipped with the handle screwed to the inside of the flywheel. This must be reversed. In the case of the double flywheel version there are two handles. The handle has two flats to accept a 24mm spanner right against the flywheel. Use a 24 spanner or a shifting spanner to hold it still. The nut on the other side of the flywheel is a 30mm spanner. Unscrew the nut and re-mount the handle(s) on the outside so the flywheel can rotate.
The crusher should be mounted on a base for a safe operation. For mobile work it is desirable to mount it on a metal plate or bolt it down on a temporary concrete slab. If the crusher is used on one place only, a sloping base (see picture) can be made for it. The slope makes it very easy to remove the crushed stone. The surface the machine is being bolted onto must be flat. If it is not the frame will be twisted as it is bolted down and it will not work properly. If the surface is already finished and it is not flat, use steel shims under the feet so that when it is bolted tight to the base the frame has not been twisted.
1. There are three adjustment one can make on the Rock Crusher: Top adjustment of the fixed jaw, bottom adjustment of the fixed jaw and stroke adjustment for the swing jaw. Remember that the Fixed Jaw is invertible (can be turned upside down). So it can last you twice as long.
1.1 The adjustment on the top of the Rock Crusher allows you to move the top of the Fixed Jaw (which does not move when the handle is turned) closer to the Swing Jaw (the one that does move). It is used wide open (150mm opening) for crushing large pieces of rock down to a smaller size about 25-40mm. When crushing stone or rubble to a small size (i.e. below 16mm) it will be done in two or more stages for maximum production. The Swing Jaw setting is normally set on the bottom hole which gives the most movement back and forth. To crush rubble (broken cement blocks and concrete), first set the top of the Fixed Jaw to the maximum opening (150mm) and the bottom of the Fixed Jaw also to the maximum size. On the second pass, or when crushing small pieces, set the top of the Fixed Jaw to the 100 position. This is the centre of the three holes. Set the bottom of the Fixed Jaw to give you the final size you want. These smaller settings use a larger proportion of the jaws and crushes more pieces at a time. If the raw material will fit into the 100 or 50mm top opening, make the first pass with a smaller opening unless the material is particularly hard.
1.2 The second adjustment is at the bottom of the Fixed Jaw. This sets the distance between the bottom of the Fixed Jaw and the bottom of the Swing Jaw. The smaller the setting, the smaller the stone has to be in order to pass out of the machine. Do not try to crush stone or rubble down to a small size in one pass. It takes too much time as the lowest teeth have to do most of the grinding.
Pull the pin out of the square bar at the bottom of the Fixed Jaw and align it with the hole that suits the job at hand. There are 5 pin holes and three positions for the Square Bar. This gives 15 steps of 2 mm each. There are four holes in a row with the lowest one giving the smallest size and the top one much larger. The hole out of line near the bottom hole gives the biggest size.
Make the bottom spacing between the jaws in the range of 25 35mm (pin in top hole or in the hole that is out of line). This is the normal setting for the First Pass. After crushing rubble (which will generate some dust and small pieces) use a sieve and take out the larger pieces for re-crushing and make cement blocks with what passes through the sieve.
The third adjustment is the pin at the back of the Swing Jaw. See the three numbered holes in the picture. The pin is much tighter to remove than the other two because it passes through two bearings. Give it a good stiff yank. Clean it if necessary.
The bottom pin has three possible settings. When the pin is in the bottom position (1, and passes through the bearings) the bottom lip of the Swing Jaw moves up and down as well as back and forth slightly. This position passes the most material through the machine per turn. It also allows a large range of sizes to pass through. For example, if the bottom position is used and the Fixed Jaw is set so that the gap between the jaws is 15mm then the Rock Crusher will actually pass out 15-20mm pieces.
If you put in the third pin in the top-most position (3), the range of size produced is reduced. The capacity in wheelbarrows per day is also reduced as it takes more time to pass the pieces through as the Swing Jaw no longer opens and closes at the bottom releasing the stones. The middle setting (2) is a compromise between the two others, allowing a modest range of sizes through. Another type ofhand powered rock crusher.
Crushing rubble for brick making: Set the bottom pin of the Fixed Jaw to the bottom hole nearest to the Swing Jaw. This will make the gap about 6 to 8mm. The handle on the Square Bar cannot be turned to a fine adjustment (2mm each) when the jaws are this close together the pin must be removed, the Square Bar rotated, and the pin re-inserted if you want to change the spacing of the jaws. Re-grind the material sieved out of the first pass. It might be as little as 1/4 of the original volume. It will generate a lot of very small particles and has a slower throughput than before. Sieve the output again for any flat flakes that have made it through the whole process uncrushed. Keep these aside and dump them in when the next batch goes through for a second pass.

My wife recently started making beads and other things from polymer clay, and wasn't getting quite the finish she wanted using sandpaper. It turns out that even children's toy rock tumblers are relatively expensive and the professional models are definitely out of our price range, so she asked me to see if I could assemble something from old bits and pieces we had laying around. The kind of tumbler I've seen before seemed like a fairly simple arrangement - some kind of barrel turned by horizontal rollers, similar to a tumble dryer, so that's what I set out to build.
Parts list - these parts all came from my junk pile. Nothing was purchased for this project, so technically it cost $0 to build. As suggested by several people (iceng and ottwafm), the tumbler would be more durable if some kind of wheel bearings were used for the rollers. Bearings for skate board wheels or ride-on mower decks should be easy to find locally.
1) electric motor from Grand Am electric window lifter. 2) old PC power supply. This one happens to be a 90W supply. 3) rollers - could be broom handle or any round pole. These are actually mini rolling pins from my wife's craft supplies. 4) various bits of wood to make a frame and base board. 5) 2 inches of garden hose. 6) power switch. 7) screws, coach bolts w/ nuts 8) anti-slip shelf liner
Cut several length of plank to make the ends of the frame, then stand them in their approximate locations. The position of the driven roller depends on the size of the motor mount. The position of the other roller is variable, depending on the size of the drum. The rollers here are 5" apart on centers. Later I decided to add a third roller at 3.5" to accomodate smaller drums.
The holes for the rollers are somewhat oversized. This should eliminate binding and the weight of the drum will hold the rollers down. The large hole is for the garden hose that connects the drive shaft to the roller. The motor is built into its own mount, which is offset from the side of the motor, so I cut a shim out of a piece of scrap plywood.
The static end just has holes for the rollers. The slot above the middle hole allows the roller to be removed when a larger drum is being used. In fact, a single non-driven roller could be used, with multiple slotted holes to suit different drums.
After measuring the separation for the ends, rails are cut and attached. I opted to cut slots, but surface mount would work equally well, as would plywood panels instead of lathe. Mount the motor along with the driven roller. I used coach bolts, which present a rounded head in the roller section. The roller ends have a small amount of furniture finishing wax applied, to reduce friction in the holes.
Take a look at the PC power supply cabling. There should be a single green wire going into the big connector block. That's the "power on" wire - it enables the motherboard to switch off the power supply when the PC shuts down. Clip that wire and one of the nearby black (ground) wires. Connect those to the power switch (any switch will do). I soldered mine rather than buying spade connector clips. Next, take one of the flat, 4 pin connectors and clip off the yellow (12 volt) and black (ground) wires. Solder those to the motor. I cut away the connector shroud to be able to get the soldering iron into it. Again, spade connectors would work, as would the proper connector if available. Plug in the power supply, flip the switch and watch the roller turn!
1) clip off remaining wires. I wrapped each end in tape, then bundled them with more tape. 2) screw the frame to the baseboard. 3) secure the power supply. I had a length of pipe hanging strap available, which also sufficed to hold the power switch. I oriented the power supply with the fan blowing towards the motor to provide cooling. 4) I had some spare storage drawers that just happen to fit nicely on the other end of the base board. 5) tests showed that the barrel would sometimes slip, which is why the rollers are now covered in anti-slip shelf liner.
My grandfather was an engineer for Honeywell. He was always building things for me, like a rock tumbler. His had two barrels, made out of plastic containers for Tucks medicated pads. There was one on each side with the motor in the middle. It was nice because we could polish two different grits at the same time.I don't have it anymore, so I decided I wanted to make one with my daughter. I was an electronics technician in the Navy so I figured I could find directions online easy enough. I really like these instructions. I even bought the same motor off eBay! We are so excited to make it. I realized only now that this post is from over a decade ago. I am hoping the Creator gets notifications of comments this. I'd like to message with any questions. If toy duo, can you reply to this? Thanks!
How about an old treadmill that u use to exercise on it has a motor bearings and speed control u can precisely control ur speed u would have to take it apart so dont use the one ur wife uses she might be mad
It's a modular drawer unit, with several different sizes of drawers. I got it about 40 years ago in England, so don't ask what brand it is... :) One unit has two shallow drawers, another has a single deep drawer, and a third size is deep and double-width. The various units slid together on dovetail joints. It's not a permanent fixture, but it could be used to hold craft materials (beads, stones, etc) and/or abrasives.
you can add skateboard wheel bearings to the spindles to decrease heat (fire risk) and increase the efficiency just drill a hole the circumference and depth the size of the bearings enough to counter sink them adjust the spindle diameter to fit inside the bearing hole and viola. Great project by the way very simple and effective.
I tried that - the problem is that it's so slow that the jar will do two or three revolutions per minute, so it will take forever to polish anything.What I then did was connecting the motor through a flexible steel shaft to the cover of the jar. It works, but it's not as simple and functional as this one.
Yes, some kind of wheel bearings would definitely be a good idea. At the time of building, I had a minimal budget to work with, and was really happy to be able to complete the assembly for $zero outlay. As it happens, the tumbler was used for less than two weeks, and has been gathering dust since. I have updated the parts list to suggest wheel bearings for durability.
Thank you for the suggestion. I would probably fit some kind of ball-bearing races if it ever needs upgrading. However, right now it is barely being used at all, and the original dry sockets are holding up OK.
Awsome. I have a different use. I have a whole lot of ammunition brass I want to sell but needs to be cleaned. I had a vibratory cleaner that burned out. Then I saw online people using Thumblers Tumbler with number 47 stainless steel pins. It's in water with a few tablespoons of dish soap. The results were better than anything I did with my dry media and vibrator. When I looked to purchase the tumbler they were anywhere from 100 to 250 and up. 5 pounds of pins around 30 bucks. This invention will work wonderfully except I'm worried how the coffee can will hold up with all that brass and pins rolling around in there. Anyone use one of these for this?
I'm going to make one for jewelry and my husband may use it for his brass. I was looking around on YouTube and saw someone using a big thermos. That's what I'm gonna try. They're pretty thick so I think it'll be fine.
You could equally well use something like a paint can, those generally fit tight enough to need a mallet to close. Any tube with a screw top would work too - a strip of duct tape would help stop it unscrewing. Once you find an appropriate container, you can size the frame to fit. Also, you'll want to pick a motor that can drive the weight without running too hot, and make sure the rollers don't bind. You could even pick up some cheap ball bearing races for the rollers.
excellent project. I only suggest (unless another beat me to it) you can coat the rollers with silicone rubber in a tube (if you have left over from something else), or even several coats of rubber cement or rubber inner tube sleeves.. but use wut ya got! verra nice indeed
