That was my problem, I couldn't find one.

I very well could be, with the correct gears, it could be done with a rather small motor. I don't know how long a small motor would last though, as I have never seen them in an application were they are meant to run for hours (excepting cheapo kiddy rock tumblers)

Perhaps I was a bit nasty, sorry. It has a 3lb jar, plenty for my needs. The problem with making one is that I am unable to find a good motor. The ones on ebay seem to big, I am looking for something very compact.

All I need is something that will make small batches, but has the power to crush charcoal. Since I only use small quantities, a small jar is fine, but if that is the case, do I still need the recommended 1/2-1/3 hp motor? Or could I get along with a 1/8 or so?

Ritual: Have you used it? If not, refrain from such a derogatory comment, as it seems to have worked quite well for another advanced pyro user...

expensive? it's really cheap...

Another option that might be more availiable in western countries would be wheat chaff/hulls similar but more local.

Edit: Try a mill or something and ask if you can bag some.
