Re: Lerner Linistainer

From:Richard Pitman <>


This machine is marketed by Shandon. Try or  for your nearest supplier.

The motor you describe used to fail quite regularly on our Linistains, so I always keep a spare in the lab cupboard. Latterly, the design seems to have improved, and I have had no trouble with the later motors. Newer motors have less teeth on the final drive sprocket. Presumably, internal gear ratios have altered to compensate - it was usually the gear train that failed, not the motor.

Can anyone tell me who is currently supplying parts for the Lerner Linistainer (also known as the Baxter GLX Linear Stainer); a Canadian supplier if possible.   I need a motor with the drive sprocket attached.  Thank you in advance.
