I have a dimmer switch assy inline on my tire sander to regulate its speed.

A servo controller, continuous rotation servo and a 12 mm hex front axle from an offroad car will do it pretty cheaply too. Just mount it to a project box.

Lots of good ideas here.

I got bored last night and 3D printed a box. Fortunately everything here I had lying around the house. Of course I had to use very expensive stainless screws on my free project to offset the lack of cost.

Can you post a link, or the name of the part?

Very nice ideas here.

But I miss a tire glueing machine, which enables to glue brand new tires to the rims.

Something like the ideas above combined with a adjustable roll, which is pulling down the seam of the tire while rotating, to fill in the glue between tire and rim...

Something like this for 1/10 touring car:


If I had just a 3D printer...

Search on ebay to "hex flex coupler" and you can find these adapers for several shaft dimensions like 6mm for 12v geared motors.

Anyone measure the output shaft diameter? Looking to do this for 1/12th scale front wheels.

this is what I use, converted a cheap RTR servo to continuous and use an old 1/12 rx pack (they're illegal now anyways) on the servo tester. If you use an icharger you don't even need a servo tester.

How do you feel about the RPMs on that setup? I was chatting with a friend who has a box made by Kyle Klingforth, and we were thinking more like 15-20rpm (3-4 seconds per revolution) would be better.

I was also thinking I'd rather have something 12VDC to plug into the power supply, instead of needing an A/C outlet. I've done some looking, and there's some options for 15-30rpm 12VDC motors at closer to a $12-15 price point on amazon. But I haven't pulled the trigger, because it's easier to just let my friend glue my tires for me. xD

RPM's are fine for me. (You could also use a dimmer switch and control the RPM's if you wanted)

I'm sure someone could come up with a solution for a 12V version. I'd rather plug it in and not have to worry about getting to to track and finding out my batteries are dead though.
