Title: Re: Thumbler Tumbler

I've been using mine for 47 years now, am on the 2ND drive motor.
Been through a half dozen drive belts as well.
The original plastic roller bearings are long gone. I used a chassis punch and installed four sealed ball bearing instead. Works like a charm.
I only use mine as a wet tumble with S/Steel tumbling Media.
Fill it up,a few drops of Dawn,turn it on and set the timer for one hour. The brass comes out brighter than new.
Really crappy brass,like the military 6.5 Swede brass takes two hours but comes out bright and shiny as well.
Could not live without mine.
