Tire Truing Machine
« on: April 18, 2017, 11:18:07 PM »
Having recently gotten back into 1/12 scale pan car racing I have rediscovered how handy it would be to be able to true down your own tires. Being that budgets are tight and I would would rather spend dollars on other things I have attempted to make my own home made Tire Truer. Parts include...........
-an old bathroom fan motor (hopefully it has enough torque! :-\)
-some scrap pieces of UHMW plastic
-a slide assembly a friend had laying around
-piece of lexan for the base
-various screws to mount it all together
I still need to figure out a cutter or sand paper mount for on top of the slider and some sort of arbor to mount the tires onto the axle of the fan motor. If you have any ideas on that I would be happy to hear about them.
Let me know what you think.
