Belt for Thumler's tumblers

Thumler's Model A-R1 Belt

Only $6.99
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.
