Thumler's Model A-R1 Belt
Replacing a worn out A-R1 belt is one of the easiest fixes on the tumbler. No tools are required. Just slip the belt off of the large pulley on the drive shaft, lift the drive shaft out of its slot, and remove the belt.
Please note: If you have one tumbler, there is no need to purchase several belts. These belts last us an average of several years EACH. Learn why.
Model A-R1 Tumbler Bearings
Thumler's A-R1 bearings are made of durable polyethylene. Bearings are simple to replace. Remove the retainer clip, slide the old bearing off, put the new one on, and replace the retainer clip. We suggest purchasing some extra retainer clips just in case one gets damaged.
Thumler's A-R1 Barrel Guides
Thumler's A-R1 tumbler barrel guides are made of nylon which makes them durable. You won't have to change these very often but when you do it is a simple job. Remove the retainer clip, remove the bearing and old guide, slide on a new guide and replace the bearing and retainer clip. Purchasing some extra retainer clips in case you damage one is a good idea.
