I am starting to come around to Arun's (A-Groan ) thinking about getting the Integy unit.

I would consider the automatic Hudy if I could get away with using my Radio Shack 25A switching power supply to run it, but I am guessing it needs more juice than than?!?!

What is everyone with a Hudy Automatic using to run it?
The box is definitely worth it, mine came with one, it's nice. If you can afford the auto hudy, I would say go for it, I trued 3 pairs of tires on my Universal yesterday, and my arm started to get pretty tired after the 2nd pair of cranking that little wheel. I think 25a should be plenty, over on hudy.net, they have a message board, you can ask Mario Hudy himself.

I bought some 36 tooth per inch jigsaw blades, a 3 pack, you can make 2 or 3 blades out of each entire blade, for about $5. If anyone's interested.. (BOSCH U118G3) I still haven't found a good trim stick yet, I might go back to Home Depot to see what they have.
I also use jigsaw blades (on my integy truer), except I use 12tpi. They cut EXCELLENT.

I have even had my charger running while I'm using my tire truer! And yes, the 13 amp power supply! I can post pics if anyone is interested. Let me know what you want to see (if anything).

I agree. Isn't the motor on that thing amazing? I think it only draws like two amps, and it NEVER slows down.

Well, I figured that the Hudy carbide cutter has fine teeth, and is the ideal cutter for the tires, so I got blades that about matched the tpi of that of the carbide cutter. Maybe I will buy the carbide cutter at a later date.
