Recommended Posts

I got a used RT1200 trimmer, set it up on my OLD single stage press and started trimming. The press kind of leans back, it is designed that way, about 10-15 degrees. After running the trimmer for 15-20 minutes it started getting really noisey almost like a dry bearing or something, it also seemed to pick up a little vibration. Is there any reason not to run this trimmer at an angle like this? It could just be because it is older, I know I make a lot of strange noises...

the unit is safe to run at any angle. It has two sealed bearings. The do run very hot, being a rectified AC sealed motor.If it sat straight, you could have brewed a cup of tea on top.
