    Default Vibratory case tumbler parts

    Yes I know it's not worth the money to fix the cheaper case tumblers. That being said is there a source to buy replacement motors for the generic case tumblers? My Scotch heritage is kicking in and I can't keep from thinking I should fix the tumbler that quit on me yesterday.
    Thanks Zoom

    Any data plate on the motor to give us some specs?

    Try these folks: http://www.dealerselectric.com/

    If you have patience to keep looking, sooner or later a correct size motor is bound to show up on eBay.

    on the note of tumblers, my local scrap yard had syntrons for sale. I asked him who would buy these things. He said folks use em to tumble their cases. so if you have a good scrap yard nearby or have a friend in a factory's maintenance dept, check into that. big capacity, and high power. Might have to line the bowl so brass doesn't get beat up. kind of like this thing http://www.labx.com/v2/spiderdealer2...cfm?id=5109385

    Funny this thread would come up. My Thumblers UV-18 quit on me a couple of days ago. I called them an ordered a new motor over the phone ($40 ish) which seemed kinda pricey for a 1/30 hp but it was way cheaper than a new tumbler!

    I received my new motor tonight from Tru-square metal products. It was a perfect fit to the old one and saved me a lot of time buy just bolting it in place. They have changed the eccentric cam- the new one is a lot heavier. It's a wonder these motors last as long as they do with the main shaft so out of balance!

    Grainger sells small motors ,make sure it has BALL bearings,I have built a few of my own.
    $40 bucks is not bad if it has ball bearings.
