Does anyone know about rock tumblers?

My kid wants to leave his rock tumbler on for days in our garage. Okay but I touched the motor on it and it was very hot. So I unplugged it at night. Do people really leave that thing running 24/7. Cause it seems like a firehazzard to me.

The DH says that the body of the tumbler might get a bit warm to the touch from friction, but it shouldn't get hot. (He's fairly knowledgeable in general but hasn't had a tumbler himself.)
So you could have a problem with the motor on the tumbler you purchased, if you're using it according to directions.

You might want to check out the website of the manufacturer listed on the tumbler to see (or ask) about heating, safety, etc.

(DH says the cord would be the last to get hot, if there were a problem.)

And yes, people do generally leave them running for days at a time, stopping only to change grits and water, etc.
