Thumler's MP-1 Belt
Replacing the belt on a Thumler's MP-1 tumbler is an easy job that can be done without tools. Lift the drive shaft off of the frame, slip the belt over the pulley, replace the drive shaft and roll the belt over the motor pulley.
Thumler's MP-1 Bearings
Thumler's MP-1 bearings are simple to replace. Lift up the shaft, slide off the old bearings, and put on the new ones.
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 MP-1 Barrel Guides
Thumler's MP-1 two-pound tumbler barrel guides are made of a durable nylon. You won't replace these often, but when you do it is easy to do. 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.

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.
