Can anyone figure on a way for me to get 2 of these
without having to pay £400? :scratch:

I gather these are made by taking a solid stainless steel billet and then lathing them hollow
and then lathing an insert cap. Great, only I wouldn't pay £400 for it in a million year's.

The only thing is it need's to be stainless steel and will be used for ball milling aluminium
so need it to be thick enough walled to deal with that.

The way i'm making it will consist of a simple mild steel welded frame with a 300w motor mounted to the top of it.
The motor is connected directly to a length of pipe which contain's both the canister's I need. Each are held
in place by nut and bolt untill processed, the bolt's then need to be removed in order to remove each
canister.

So this is rather more like a planetary ball mill rather than a traditional drum type. I know it will work,
because I made a centrifuge along the same lines using the same idea's and while any engineer would
laugh at it, it's only actually costing me about £25 to make because I have the bit's and pieces laying
around here.

So obviously I'm not paying £200 for the two cannister's lol.

If I really need to, I'll just use 250ml paint can's for the canister's though they wont last
long.
