How to make a drum from a concrete mixer

(1/5) > >>

Hi All,

In need of some idea's how to make a drum from a concrete mixer. Size is rather small about 1,5 cm in length and 3 cm diameter at it's biggest. The unequal tapered shapes are the trouble. Even considered buying a mixer toy but can't find any info on the toys nor the drum.

Maybe someone can point me in the right direction?

For something that small you could use a drill as a mini lathe.  Clamp the drill then mount a bit of plastic on a drill bit.  Use sandpaper to shape it at a slow speed.

At first glance at the subject line I thought you were talking about Caribbean steel drums made from 55 gallon barrels except really huge!

There used to be an adhesive glue in the shape of a concrete mixer,  I can't remember the product name.

Is there any lego of right size and shape ?
