Default Drill press mods?

I was wondering if anyone would share their method for sanding tires on the drill press. I run the ae two wheel and was wondering how you guys hold the rim in place.

Take a old stub axle and cut the ball end off. Install a drive pin, mount your wheel and now you have a shank for your drill chuck.

I believe he is talking about sanding them to turn them into slicks.

Or just use a belt sander? Or drive a bit in the street having some fun!

I just use an old axle stub as well. Works great. You can also use a cordless power drill too if you need something to take to the track. I find it gives a more uniform finish on the tire than using a belt sander or dremel.

Edit: No one makes a slick tire (Except Panther, which don't seem to work anywhere I've been to). It also allows you to make "Ghost Pins" for varying levels of moisture in the track during the day.
