well we just sit around here

Midway 1292:  new motor from Grainger costs more than a new tumbler. 

New tumbler:  Amazon is undercutting MidwayUSA something sick. 

Amazon:  "hey why not stream some music from a bearded Justin Timberlake while you are sitting around in your house waiting for your tumbler?" 

Midway 1292 tumbler

It just blew up. 

I was cleaning up some 6.5 Grendel brass and some Lake City 7.62 after success at a range.  Stopped the tumbler to have a look, figured they needed a little more cowbell. 

I flicked the switch, and sparks jumped out from beneath the bowl, then smoke curled up from within. 

Motor is smoked.  It had a good run, I probably bought it in '92 or '93, before joining my Sainted Wife in matrimony. 

Though running it on the floor of a dusty garage might have hastened its demise.  

Maybe somebody has a replacement motor.
