    Time to retire my old mixer haha. It ran wonky for the last few months so I gave up cleaning it. It wants to do cartwheels due to the weight. The metal between stand and mixer broke a few times and was re welded. Its been through its paces and been very good to me for the 50quid I paid for it. Any idea how I can clean it? Brick acid? I did jackhammer it and broke the weld on the stand again. Let the good times roll

    Weigh it in for scrap - you'll get quite a bit as long as they don't look inside it!

    Mythbusters dealt with a similar problem, with set concrete in a truck. They used explosives

    If it's really on its last legs then I've heard setting a fire in the drum will break it all away due to differential expansion.

    ...at the cost of the paintwork
