You know it's been too long when....

I tossed some .357 brass in my tumbler and turned the switch on. The motor just made a hummmm noise so me being the mechanic I'm not had to tear it apart and see what was wrong.
Dirt-dobbers had built a nest around the fan & it would'nt allow it to turn...easy fix, back together and working in 15min....What are some things others have run into that may suggest it's been too long?

I coach football, so every winter I have to go in and clean the dust off of everything that hasn't been touched al fall, but by golly it's worth it.

That brass you tumbled is so dusty, you're running it through the tumbler again.

Four loads so far in the last seven days. 80% done.

You refer to your reloading equipment manual.
There are three kinds of men:
1) The ones that learn by reading.
2) The few who learn by observation.
3) The rest of them have to pee on the electric fence and find out for themselves..........

You have rust on the Max cartridge gage.
You KNOW you have some 32 caliber bullet but can't find them.
