Re: Rock Rascal Model TM

Hi Mark,

Unfortunately, the makers of Rock Rascal equipment aren't exactly rock scientists when it comes to documenting their products. I have never purchased a model TM but I have purchased several other pieces of Rock Rascal equipment and the accompanying documentation varied from none to very sparse. I think a "manual" is out of the question lol, but if you call Johnson Brothers in California (Rock Rascal) at (714) 771-7007 you should be able to get the information you need to refurbish your Rock Rascal.

BTW, in my experience Grainger is rather expensive. You can probably find a suitable motor, pulleys, belt and any other items you need less expensively. The pulleys and belt are hardware/farm supply store type items. Harbor Freight has a reversible 1/2 hp 1750 rpm electric motor for about $70 new, you might also look for a suitable motor surplus or even salvage one from an appliance like a dead washing machine.

Good luck and have fun with your Rock Rascal.
