      @Gary in Illinois How about this:




      Got my Frankfort Arsenal Rotary Tumbler last week, plugged it in, filled the barrel with the ss media and soap which came with it and added the brass cases and recommended amount of water, used the FART Tool to tighten the caps and started tumbling.

      The gearing in the tumbler has become poorly engaged and it will not spin the drive wheels under the tumbler at all -- just makes a grinding sound like gears are grinding passed each other -- which they are no doubt doing. Total weight of tumbler with the stuff inside is 20 lbs. Owner's Manual says not to exceed 30 lbs.

      Great design!

      Made in China. (Let's go Brandon! Trump needs to put a 100% Tariff on all Chinese goods. Make stuff here. Buy stuff here.)

      Call into Franfort Arsenal CS for a replacement.

      That is it! I have to admit I don’t know where it is made, though. I also am not certain where Thumler’s Tumblers come from but I would guess the USA. I do know that I have used mine for many years and just within the last month I finally replaced the lid gasket and the drive belt (cost ~ $20). I do know that I can put 5# of the stainless media and a lot of brass in it with the barrel full of water & soap and still have it run well.

      Dead simple system and dead reliable.
