I'd like to leave it on when I go to work. Its not sitting next to a can of gas or curtains or anything.

I leave my vibratory polisher on regularly

I've left mine running for over a week before with no problems.
I've had the same tumbler (small Midway model) for about 12 years. They recalled it because of the cord, but I never bothered.

A tumbler I have was recalled maybe 10 years ago due to fire risk...IIRC it could overheat if left running on carpet, which would restrict air flow.

ETA or maybe it WAS the cord, it's been a while.

mine runs on a concrete floor in the garage. It's cold out there so I haven't worried about it.

Depends on the tumbler. If its a good one, with a larger gauge cord, it shouldn't be a problem.

The only case I heard of involved a heavily overloaded tumbler.

I put mine on the back porch.

I have a lyman vibrating case cleaner,I am usually around while running it,however IMHO they should only be used outside.As the cleaning media either tumbles or vibrates to clean the cases,it releases a cloud of lead dust into the air from the brass.I have read in a few places that this is one of the leading causes of lead poisoning from shooting/reloading,even more so than casting your own bullets.Of course YMMV.
