I can't find anything for the NatGeo Rock tumber ( I assume it is National Geographic) but I did find a site that has free instructions on how to use a tumber and hints for the best results, The site is Geology.com and they have I hope the information you need. I wish I had better results.

Nothing high tech here. Try it without the o-ring. If the water does not start to leak out in the first 3 to 5 minutes of tumbling you will be ok. Stop it every day to check the water level.

Set the whole thing on a cookie sheet in case it does leak when you are not watching - you don't want a bunch of rock dust and polishing grit on your table or floor in the morning.

You will not damage anything by trying it without the o-ring.

I received a national geographics tumbler for Christmas when I tried to use it the lid comes loose and spills water and stuff all over.


-Possibly too cheap and make form out side of USA.
Don't use it. Every time you use it. It'll do the same thing.
Or you can try couple more times to see what it'll do.


Good luck

Need instructions for rock tumbler


Directions for the NatGeo tumbler are apparently non-existent online. However, I did find the video below to be quite useful. It has some general tips that work with any brand of tumbler. I hope this helps out!

Need instructions on how to remove the tumblers from the Maytag Model NO. FAV6800AWW, washer. Took off the caps, but not sure how to get the plastic piece off underneath that's holding the tumbler...


Did you remove the #20 torx screws holding on the tumbler?
See Page 37 of the Service Manual

Do you have the FAV6800A/FAV9800A Service manual?

If not google ""Sticky: Neptune TL Washer FAV6800AWW"" and I will help you at that forum.....d*ick dh1200s

We lost the creatology rock tumbler instruction manual and cant do anything with out it


Hi, We got the same tumbler this Christmas. You might be able to get an manual from [email protected]
To get started though, Step 1 takes 2-4 days, step 2 4-7 days, step 3 2hrs, step 4 2 hrs.
To start day 1
1) rinse stones with water and fill barrel with no more than 8 oz of stones
2) Add step 1 course Grinding Powder
3) Add enough water to cover stones
4) tighten (snugly) cap on barrel to prevent leaking
5) Be sure barrel is clean & dry. Fit barrel into tumbler (fits correctly only in 1 direction). Cover barrel with safety dome.
6) Attach DC plug to tumbler and plug in.
7) Push on/off button
8) Push # of days button timer.

Extras
They suggest using a lubricant on the inside rim of lid to help removal.
Once you start the tumbling do not turn it off and leave it off - It will harden like cement inside the barrel.
It is loud so place it on a towel to help reduce noise and put it where it won't bother anyone.
Good Luck and Have Fun

Is there an easy online guide to changing out the ignition tumbler in a 1992 dodge caravan?


Hi,
First remove the plastic 2 piece shroud around steering column so as to gain access to the housing the tumbler sits in. Find three Phillips screws to remove in holes in the lower piece.
Turn the ignition key to the Run position. Insert a small tip screwdriver in the access hole on the bottom of the housing to push the spring-loaded tab which will free the tumbler so you can simply pull the tumbler out with the key.
Installation is the reverse. Be sure tumbler with key inserted is set to the Run position.
Depress spring-loaded tab, insert tumbler into housing hole with tab down. All the way in,
Turn key to the Lock or turn it off.


Let us know if you want something more else please accept the suggestion.
Thank You for contacting Fixya.com

My tumbler won't turn. Tried unloading some rocks but still having a problem.


I had the same problem, The problem is that the tumbler lid is to smooth and there is no grip from the spinning wheel. I solved this problem by taking a kitchen steak knife and roughing up the edge of the tumbler where it rides on the spinning wheel. Works great now. Best of luck
