Thumler's Model A-R12 Belt
Replacing a broken A-R12 belt is an easy job that requires no tools. Having an extra belt around is good practice so when one breaks you don't have to wait for one in the mail to continue tumbling.
A-R12 Tumbler Bearings
Thumler's A-R12 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 you damage some while removing or replacing them.
Stop Squeaky Bearings
We oil our Thumler's Tumblers every 30 days (or after each batch of rocks) with 3-IN-ONE Multi-Purpose Oil or SAE20 motor oil. Only one drop on each bearing. See our article for photos and detailed instructions.
Needle-Tip Oil Bottle
Have your own SAE20 motor oil or general purpose oil? Use one of these needle-tip bottles to accurately dispense it on tumbler bearings and motors. Keep your tumbler running smooth and quiet.
Thumler's A-R12 Barrel Guides
Thumler's A-R12 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.
Thumler's Shaft Retainer Clips
Retainer clips are used to hold the bearings on the end of the shafts and to hold the nylon rollers in the proper location on the idler shaft.
Thumler's Tumbler Nylon Roller
After years of use, the nylon rollers on the idler shaft may wear down and need to be replaced. We offer a set of two rollers for the A-R1 and A-R6 tumblers and a set of three rollers for the A-R2 and A-R12 tumblers. Roller replacement is simple - just remove the old rollers from the idler shaft and slide the new rollers into their place.
Thumler's Rubber Roller
These rubber rollers for the drive shaft are what give the barrel traction and keep it turning to tumble the rocks inside. Replace worn rollers for optimum tumbling action. A set of two rubber rollers is needed for the A-R1 and A-R6 tumblers while a set of three rollers is needed for the A-R2 and A-R12 tumblers.
