Backorder? I had no idea the demand for bottle tumblers was so high. Maybe an issue with getting parts? I am jealous of you. Cadillac of tumblers!

That is odd that you have to wait. As ROBBY says it could be for a certain part, but I believe he manufactures most if not all of his machines. I visited JarDoc a few months ago and the only thing he was out of was the 6" clear acrylic tubes. He did have several units he was putting together for orders so it could be a demand issue. He is a one man operation.

I didn’t pick it out or would have opted for the less expensive one, after really thinking it thru for a year. But it is a Christmas present and he did pick the biggest one with the most capacity after talking to the guy for a long time. All I really have to have in a machine is for it to turn at the right speed, and hold a canister big enough to hold the biggest whiskey. So I’m not sure what I’m getting, but since it’s 5’ long(?!), I guess more counter space in the garage might go with that? ( Space in that garage is at a premium, for sure.) I don’t know if the guy has a lot of orders or is waiting on parts or why it’s on back order, only that I have to wait on that, not that it’s Christmas yet! But I can’t wait!

I’m betting it won’t be as noisy as the big vibratory one out there, with the grody bucket of bolts running! Lol! Sounds like 1000 wood peckers…. Yes, I will be sending pix… acting like such a rookie, because I never had the right stuff like copper- so I won’t know how to act! I do have a lot of the oxides, but will have the whole shebang, but might not know which to do next, etc! I’m sure I will be begging for advice and knowledge, right? I was told it could handle 7-8 canisters- probably mixed sizes. Can’t wait to finish all the 3/4 tumbled bottles around here….

I get things sometimes and they sit in the box because I am overwhelmed by it all. I procrastinate, wait and then hate that it was so easy to use after all. We are here for any support if you need. We need a Bottle tumblers support group! I would laugh but it sounds too good of an idea...now I'll Lol!

I got my tumbler back in July and it didn’t come with directions. Between our on members in here and the jar doctor I’ve learned a lot, but also figured out along the way there is no right way or wrong way. It’s whatever works. As long as you load the tubes right and don’t use to heavy of a cut compound you should be safe. I thought it was going to be easy when I got it and now I realize it’s actually work. Still loving it though.

I am not the one who spoke to him yet, but was wondering if a Lot of people asked Santa for tumblers so he’s got he’s kind of slammed? He said “with the orders I have, it will be around Christmas before I can get to yours”. And that was mid November….. So he has a lot of orders ahead of mine? Sounds like his busy time of year, maybe? That had to be interesting, seeing what he has going on! His orders speak to quality and his reputation- both are stellar! I can’t wait- but have already learned a bunch, trying to wear thru the 2 different rock tumblers, here! Seriously, have worn a hole in the medal, into the motor compartment on the rotary tumbler and those are not old! But you would never think they are only 2-3 months old, to look at them. I’ve beat the hell out of both of them! A little bit, on purpose, cuz I can be a spoiled brat, they tell me- like “see? I told you. Needed the right equipment!” Lol!

Nah! I doubt it will hold any liquids--if you leave a the smallest gap in the duct tape holding the cannisters together that grit will leave like Elvis.
I keep seeing a commercial that claims you could make a boat from a screen door.

I used that same item last summer to repair a small hole in my shed's roof. It was the tape not the paste. Funny, I've seen that tv ad with the boat a thousand times and at the moment can't remember its name. Anyhow, its meant to be permanent. DON'T use it to hold the cannisters together.
