Spinning mop buckets parts

Recommended Posts

TPUBON    23

I have one of those spinning mop buckets and I been looking for a part. Unfortunately the bucket has no manufacturer name anywhere on it. If you recognize the bucket from provided picture please let me know the name. I also included a picture of nylon gear that I need. Maybe you have a broken bucket and this is on it.

It's easier to buy new I think, than to chase a little part you may not find. I've got two of them and both broke. I can still use the second one, but it's not so good. Buy the cheapest one you can find because the expensive ones break anyway!

My wife calls these type of mop "Easy to Break Mop", not "Easy Mop".  A race to the bottom in price and parts quality.

Get some 2 part epoxy and "glue" it back onto the shaft

with any repair complete cleanliness/dryness is  your friend  if the surface  areas are big enough  super glue might do a better job, quality S/G not your 20 bht shop stuff

This is exactly what I did and it worked. I've also discovered why they break in the first place.

 

Storing the mop head in the spinning basket puts an uneven strain on the mounting. I've asked (I hesitate to say instructed!) my wife not to do that, leave it in the bucket once it's dry. This seems to have solved the problem.

 

However, if it does finally break, I will not buy another. Too gimmicky for my liking.

I buy a new one about every 18 months. I suspect that rust seems to play a part in their demise.

 

After use I now dry in the sun and then store in a dry place. As another poster said, don't keep the mop in the bucket.

I used to think the same, preferring my industrial grade, lasts forever, safety yellow, Rubbermaid wringer bucket.  Until I actually used the cheapo spinner units.  True they are pretty much disposable.  But they sure are convenient, and so cheap that I don't mind replacing them every 6-12 months.

A friend made this on his 3D printer.

 

Sorry, but I gotta ask.  How many hours do you have into programming the 3D printer to make that part?   Probably like a lot of guys, I'd do it just for the satisfaction, but...
