    hey...do they have the lifetime warranty thing on that like other Dillon stuff??

    You're best one might be a free replacement

    Six years? How much did you run that thing? I've been running a Lyman vibrator for over 20 years and I think it's just now starting to make more noise than usual.

    I have been thinking of replacing it with a Dillon 500, in part because the one I listened to in a store recently was practically silent compared to my old Lyman. But if they only last 6 years I'd be inclined to put up with the noise and get another (cheaper) Lyman, or perhaps the even cheaper Frankford Arsenal (Midway's product brand.)

    Same here with my Lyman Turbo 1200. some where around 15 to 18 years and still going...Noise?? I thought that was normal. Besides it reminds me that it's still operating so I remember to turn it off once in a while...:D

    My Thumler's Ultra-Vibe UV-18 tumbler is about 23 years old and runs constantly. My other tumbler is a Berry's, and it's also running constantly. For the money, the Berry's is hard to beat and actually cleans faster than the larger UV-18.

    Hope this helps.

    I use IOSSO liquid cleaner. Shiny cases in just a few minutes and no worries about tumbling media stuck inside a case.

    I would call Dillon even though it's not covered under their warranty. I believe they sell replacement motors for their tumblers and it may be cheaper to just get the replacement motor than buy a whole new unit. Here's an older thread about someone elses motor that crapped out. $27.95 for a new motor was quoted by Dillon on that thread....don't know if that's still the case.
