Default 1 Cubic Yard Concret Mixer

I thought I would start a thread while I am still in the design phase of this project. The truth is I'm not completely confident in my ability to make a machine that provides satisfactory performance. I invite any input as I have little experience with concrete.

We are talking about a bit over 4000 lbs. of concrete here. I have decided to make what is known as a " vertical shaft" or "pan mixer" but with most things that I make there will be a thing or three that will be different.

I have a speed reducer that I think will work well. I will show a picture of that later.

Below is a picture of one that is similar to what I have in mind.

Shit began hitting the fan in the 1950's

A technologically advanced society would teach their children how to start a fire by rubbing two sticks together before teaching them how to use a lighter.

Aren't energy consumption and computers supposed to make life less stressful?

If you are not having fun then you are doing it wrong.
