Slipping barrel
« on: October 25, 2018, 05:47:48 PM »

A vexing issue to be sure.  Is belt treatment of tumbler drum treatment or revolving rod treatment the best fix?

Interested in the response(s)

Wish I could help .One of my vibes , a barrel job, has taken to revolving when you use it .Not real obvious how to  stop it but it is a bit mesmerizing  when loaded , like a black hole with angular momentum.good luck.
