Default Build Your Own Tire Sander

Hey
I came accross a How To from Nexus Racing, I know alot of you have probably already seen it, but wanted to share the info for those of use who haven't. How to make your own Rubber Tire Sander what you will need

1.1/10 Touring Arbor
2.Pinion Gear (not sure what size it depends on the arbor)
3.Slave Motor

Once you have everything, fit a pinion into the end of the arbor that will be mounted on the motor, tighter the better, mount it on the motor, then tighten down the set screws on the arbor, place it in a motor breakin stand (optional), hook up power source, and you are ready to sand. The pic below is how it should look

A drill press works great. You can hold a spare axle in the chuck to mount the tire. A cheap 2 way cross slide vise holding a sanding drum and your in business.

Running direct drive off a motor will yeild too much rpms and not enough torque.

I guess you havent seen the Yokomo direct drive tire sander, that is where this idea comes form. As for the motor a Integy 55t lathe motor works great, super torque at low rpms. Yes a Dremel works good, this is just another option
