I was considering buying the Lortone dual barrel tumbler
Reading the archives, it seems some people have had trouble getting
the lid on. I’ve seen all sorts of advice, ranging from using hot
water to create negative pressure as it cools, doming the bottom
when you put the lid on, leaning on the top as hard as you can to get
a tight seal, etc.
Well I’m not very big and I’m not very strong and this sort of
worries me. Then I came across this:
Now I know Harbor Freight isn’t the best for tools in the world, but
it seems there are several people who have used this tumbler for
several years before it finally blew. I ought to be able to get at
least $19 worth of use out of it, I would think. And I AM VERY
short of cash. I know the lortone would be higher quality, but
before I pony up the extra $50 (plus shipping) I’d like to hear more
about both models.
Also, I’m guessing I might have the same problems with the lid on
the Harbor Freight - anybody have any experience with this?
