Default Team Cobra Tire Lathe Question?

I picked up a used 8000AC with a bad motor. Replaced motor and the direction that the lathe spins in Up ^. Or clockwise. Would this send the material you are cutting up into your face. I thought that the lathe would spin down so the trimed tire material would shoot down.

Is the lathe turning in the right direction?

Thanks


Tom

I have an old AC cobra lathe and unfortunatly the sob spins the tire clockwise so you get a face full of foam when u tru your tires.

Loud as hell but she cuts anything, buddy of mine made up adaptors so we can use hacksaw blades instead of sanding drums or cheese grattor cutters.

Well in theory couldn't you just wire the Slave motor backward and then the motor would run counter-clockwise. Just my thoughts. Maybe I an wrong but I thought maybe it would work.
Here are my two pennies you are welcome to them.
Thanks,

I have never opened mine up but typically an A/C motor will only go one direction unless its built to be reversec but that would mean a more expencive motor, you cant just swap L1 and L2 ang go backwards

How material can you take off per pass with the sanding drum? parmas start out at 64mm, seems most recommend going down to 58ish to start, would a cobra trackside truer take a few passes to get down to 58?

what an old post. the team cobra lathe will do parmas w/o any issue. any lathe you use, you will want to take several passes. this ensures a huge chunk of foam isnt ripped off, and makes sure the tire is true and round.

I try to search before asking n00b questions, hence the old post. Are their any brands that are more difficult to true? like jacos? I don't want to spend $250-400 for a fancy truer, thats more than my car I'm overbudget as is.

no one brand is harder to true than the next. when truing watch out for the outer ring on front tires. they are harder and more likely to get pulled off by the truer.
