Warped tumbler

Submitted by Elmer on 1/7/01. ( Topstaxidermy@aol.com )

I have a tumbler I havn,t used for a while and where the plate connects to the barrelhas bulged and causes the axle to turn with the bearing at an angle. I stopped running it until I can figure out how to get the bulge out. I have some Ideas but would like some input if anyone else has had this problem. The barrel is 30 gal blue plastic I suspect it warped from being in my shed in the cold.

Warped Tumbler

With jet engines we restored the shape of rubber and plastic parts by boiling them in soapy water. Since it would take a pretty big pot, why don't you try boiling some water and pouring it into the barrel after you remove it from the tumbler drive. Hope it works.

Yep Geo's right about hot water, I put a peice of marine grade plywood on the inside of mine. Marine grade has no holes in the veneer and is glued with water resitanet glues, I also coated it with fpolyester resin to further help. John C
