Rotary Tumbler

I remember from my childhood having a Rock Tumbler[?] when I was a kid and really enjoying the idea of polished stones.  It must have been a fad in the late 80's or early 90's but for some reason I was really into it for about a month, and then the first batch came out of the tumbler and I was all, meh.  What does this all have to do with?  Well make posted a project about making a rotary tumbler from printer parts and I for some reason got all nostalgic and super excited about making one.

During the course of finding a tumbler on Amazon, and reading reviews about tumblers I remembered my own experience and am now sad that everything from my childhood must have actually been really lame.  I'm almost afraid to watch an episode of He Man or god help me The Snorks (oh shit I did just watch an episode there is not god) or any other show that I was obsessed with as a child.
