Project: Crushing glass bottles with a vibratory tumbler.
Reason: I would like to have them break down into small pieces, including glass dust for melting, beading, enameling etc.
Theory: I should be able to break glass bottles down by smashing them into smaller pieces. Then hopefully I should be able to crush them into small pieces, including glass dust in the tumbler with the right media.
Problems: Sound – I will build a sound proofed box to put the tumbler inside while it is working. Media – I am not sure what to use, but I think it should be large, chunky and metal. Chain, Nuts, Bolts etc. Dust – The box should take care of most of this, but I can wear a mask when I open the tumbler
