Have had it for just under one year was a Christmas present from my daughter last year. Started off working awesome then it developed a slight squeak and now a terrible one with metal being deposited at the base every time I use it.
I cannot get it to center in the wire chuck
This would be a very nice machine but it’s got more wobble than my old drying motors. I should have bitten the bullet and bought the bigger motor… get that if you can. If not, be prepared to live with this wobbling and leaving the butt wraps finish a little sketchy
Jay...I started with the Gen2 wire dryer and just purchased the 9rpm slipper clutch dryer. The slipper clutch does go on the Gen2 dryer and the wire chuck is now on my 9rpm dryer. I now have two complete dryers and plan on finishing with the Gen2 slip clutch and drying with the 9rpm wire chuck. Also, with this setup, i wont have to listen to the Gen2 for hours. The 9rpm is much quieter.
The wire clutch doesn't center the rod or blank, so it turns unevenly. Basically useless for getting an even finish. I want to upgrade to the slip chuck, but I do not believe it will fit as the shaft is 7mm... it is also sold out.
Currently looking for a new set-up as this one is useless to me.
