Default Tire lathe adapter for 1/12th?

I have the manual Hudy tire lathe and love it for my TC, but I need to true down my 1/12 foams for my L4. Does anyone know where I can find an adapter?

I'm sure stomerhobbies carries it. You could also check some of the other online shops.

what tires do you use? Becasue the hundy one, i believe, only works with trc fronts, not jaco or any non-flaged bearing fronts. The integy works the opposite, only non-flanged bearing fronts.

Jacos do normally use unflanged, but I put in flanged and moved the inside shim to the outside.

the only bad thing about the integy one is that it is on back order. I have wanted one for a while, and I would have gotten the hudy one, but I heard that it wont work with unflanged rims. Maybe my sorce was wrong...hmmm.
