Thumler Tumbler Model B 15 Pound Capacity Heavy duty Large Rotary Tumbler 110v unitDESCRIPTION:
Excellent condition. Sale includes motor unit/stand, drum/lid/hardware, and new 5 pack of Thumler Tumbler replacement belts for the Model B (also work on the R1, R2, R6, or R12 models). I did several things to it to make it better when I first received it. Keep reading below.For the drum unit:
it originally didn't come fully painted (inside was bare metal). I immediately painted it a similar red color giving it several coats along with the outside of it as well to protect it from rusting.
To make it easier to use, I glued the inner rubber gasket piece to the underside of the lid. I also glued all the washers to the top of the lid. Now these pieces are held in place. This aids in putting on or taking off the lid much easier and quicker.
It originally came with wing nuts, which would kill my fingers when tightening or loosening lid. I replaced them with the black replacement knobs which are easier on your fingers and quicker to take on and off.For the motor/base unit
I cut out a piece of sheet metal and bended it and secured it to the base of the motor stand, and then drilled holes, added hardware to retain it to base, and also to allow the other side of the motor to be supported by it. I also painted it red. This way the motor is supported from both sides reducing stress on the factory mount on the drive side. Don't know why the company doesn't do this.
For maintenance I would periodically remove the roller assemblies, clean them, and lightly oil them. When the belt started to look a little worn I replaced it. I also am including a new 5 pack of replacement Thumler Tumbler branded belts (over a $25 value)Price:
Due to the sheer size and weight of this I am really not offering shipping and just want to do a FTF. If, however, you are really wanting this and are willing to pay for insured shipping I can try to find a box large and secure enough to ship all of this and give you a quote.
