I spoke to one of my fellow Master Composters recently about tumbling comosters, there are several things to be aware of; you have to fill it all at once, leave it for a few days to build up some heat and then turn it frequently. If it does not have a gearing system, apparently it is quite hard to turn and there is a danger of turning the whole thing over.
Another fellow M.C. has a husband who is an engineer and she is going to get him to design one that is easy to use.
My 3 Dalek bins are very easy to turn, using a compost stirrer (amazon £10ish) and then remove the compost from the small apron door at the base.
Remember to have a 50/50 mix of greens and browns (paper/cardboard etc)
