Default Cool find in grandpas garage.

My grandfather passed several years ago and tonight dad and I went to get his reloading equipment from my grandparents house. Well we found a homemade tumbler made from an ice cream maker. Thought I’d share it cause I thought it was pretty smart. I’m guessing he layed it on it side or tilted it over.

Cool find for sure, but I was hoping you had found a small, round safe in the floor....

That's a great idea considering you can get those ice cream makers at garage sales/thrift stores for very little. That large wooden baffle on the side is much better than the original beaters that come in the things. Your grandfather was a genius!
