Default Tire truer thread size check please??

If you have a tire truer/lathe, could you please check the size of the threaded rod that the arbors screw onto .. they are for 10/12 scale pan cars I believe, and they screw onto a 8/32 size thread, but I dont know what truers use a threaded shaft that size .. I am suspecting something made by Cobra, as that appears to be the quality of the arbors ... I came across some arbors that I am hoping somebody can use rather than just letting them sit ... thank you

Thanks for the replies guys ... Gas, I had a trackside truer, and it wasnt a threaded shaft at all .. does your 8/32 screw into the end, or is the entire arbor shaft threaded 8/32 rod ? thanks

Both my Trackside and my large AC powered cobra truer had the threaded 8/32 rod. The arbor slid over the rod and onto the hub, then the arbor nut threaded onto the rod tightening the wheel to the hub where the arbor sat, hope I explained that well...

Yup .. I think I have that set up ... I included a pic of what I have ... the 'nob' with knurling (threaded hole all the way through) screws onto the shaft, then the arbor slides up to it, and then the other knurled knob with only partial threading tightens up to the rim and secures the wheel ... I just needed to know what brand used the shaft that accepts these .. thank you very much!!

To my knowledge that would be Cobra and MaxMod, The only 2 that I know of that uses that type of arbors.
