After about 8 hours tumbling in different directions the heavy rust is gone and some shiney areas are seen. The stones are rounded now. I think today I'll clean it all out and dump in a new batch of gravel and give it another try. I also thought of dumping in some Evap O Rust with the gravel.... my only issue with this is that if I don't seal it up perfectly, the E O R will remove paint also. I've had unbelievable results with the E O R removing rust from wood working tools.

Really itching to get the tank back on so I can give it a proper road test.

That's a South Bend 9".... I bought it from a guy that had disassembled it in hopes of restoration. Cleaned it all up, reassembled and it's been bulletproof since (about 10 years). Needs the lead screw half nuts and the cross feed screws replaced but so far I've been able to "work around" the slop.
