    Hello,

    Was at my local stone yard yesterday and saw a interesting idea.

    Instead of buying tumbled pavers direct from the factory, they are now just buying the regular pavers and tumbling themselves.

    They are working out the kinks on their machine, but it is interesting. They basically took an old concrete mixer truck, and removed the barrel and set it on the ground.

    At a $1.00 a sq foot surcharge per sq foot, I'd imagine that this will be something a lot of guys will start doing. Not that I would want anything to do with working around that thing all day, but a potentially strong profit making machine.

    Do they add sand to it?, or do they use some other media.
