I know what's coming next, and yet the title of this post STILL sounds improbable. But with Dr. Qui's Instructable, it's not only probable, it's totally do-able.
Here are the materials the maker used:
- Stainless steel washing machine drum.
- 1" galvanized tube (scavenged from an old farm gate), 20 x 6mm flat steel could also be used.
- The rim from an old bike wheel.
- M6 nuts, bolts and washers.
- Self taping screws.
The doctor also says that if we can't find a front load washer to use, a tumble dryer will do the trick too. Here's a link to the tute.
And now for the outcome:
