Depending on how active it all is and when it was last powered up the ...

Re: Grit Tumbler

You're a troublemaker Mr P! You know full well I'm not allowed within 500 yards of a camera, not since the last Crown Court judgement.

Re: Grit Tumbler

I noted he had bought himself a grit tumbler/cleaner gubbins. I know they're not cheap b...

Re: Jamieson Royal Flush and similar info and wiring

Re: Rotamint Duett & Rex

If your stop solenoids are hammering then you need to check the cleanliness of the reed switches.
They're mainly situated at the opposite end of the axle to the motor and gearbox. And on the gearbox itself.

Worth cleaning but don't bend any out of shape.
