Life expectancy of a rod drying motor?...

Rate this topic

10 posts in this topic

i bought a cabelas 18 rpm rod drying motor about 2 months ago...i'm almost done with my second rod and last night i had to baby sit the rod for 2 hours cuz the motor stuck a couple of times while turning...i hear what sounds like gears clicking/grinding every so often when the motors turning...i just noticed this for the first time last night...

 

i estimate the motor has less than 30 hours on it...do all of these little motors burn out quick or is this unusual and you get what you paid for (the motor was $20)confused.gif

 

thanks...

I have the cheap-o Allelectronice 40rpm's, been using them for the past 2 months. I've left it running several times for 10 hours, if a $3 motor can last that long, so sould a $40 (or whatever) motor.

I left a Cabela's 4 rpm motor turning overnight . . . I think the homemade chuck might have been out of alignment and the POS motor ground it self into dust. Bought a new one and returned the Cabela's . . . I split the baby - not knowing if it was me or Cabela's I asked for, and received, a gift certificate . . . at least the $$$ stayed there.
