Rolling Stones Rock Tumbler - no rubber ''O'' ring

My Rolling Stones Rock Tumbler does not have a rubber ''O'' ring gasket. I don't know if it ever had one. Does it require that I use one inside the rim?

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.

The gasket on a thermostat for the 2002 explorer is a rubber ring instead of the usual gasket,is this correct?


Most newer vehicle have the rubber ring type gaskets now.I know this is not a newer vehicle but say late 90`s and up.If it came in the box with the thermostat then it is more than likely the right one.I know some people will still use a paper gasket along with the rubber ring one.But it should not leak.When you remove the thermostat you should be able to see what your vehicle comes with.Hope this helps.Good luck.

We have a rock tumbler and have lost the instructions. How long are we to tumble each stage? I assume that the sand goes inside the tumbler with the rocks. We need some directions.


Fill the barrel most of the way with stones, add coarse grit, add enough water to just cover the stones and then clean where the lid seals carefully. Seal it up and run it for a week, dump everything into a colander and rinse. Don't run that mud down your drain because it will plug it mightily, run it outside.

Do the same process with the fine grit, run it for another week and rinse and admire.

Where can i find a set of instructions for our edu science rock tumbler.


I used to have exactly that same rock tumbler. I have a bunch of polished rocks out in my garden that the kids and I made with that thing.

I don't have the instructions, but there are some perfectly great generic instructions on the geology.com web site: http://geology.com/rock-tumbler/rock-tumbler-instructions.shtml

I used these directions with great success.

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 service@bhsciencetech.com
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
