Information About Thumler's Tumblers
Thumler's Tumblers is a brand of rock tumblers that has been manufactured by Tru-Square Metal Products Company since 1960. They are quality machines that will last for years. "Thumler" is the family name of the people who invented these popular tumblers and members of their family still run the business and manufacture the tumblers. Their name is on these tumblers and they do a great job. Each of their tumblers comes with a factory warranty that allows you to buy with confidence.
Tru-Square Metal Products has been making these succssful and popular tumbling machines for nearly sixty years. Many of our customers tell us that they received a Thumler's Tumbler when they were young, used it with their children, and now use that same tumbler with their grandchildren.
The designs of Thumler's Tumblers have changed very little over the past several decades because they have been so successful. Today's replacement parts fit most of those early machines.
We have a Thumler's A-R2 tumbler that we have enjoyed for over 40 years. While you are reading this we are probably running at least one or two Thumler's Tumbler at our office.
It has tumbled a lot of rock, it still runs great, and replacement parts are still available. We still enjoy making tumbled stones. Every one that you produce is unique and some are spectacular :-)
