I got the hudy carbide cutter in today. Gave it a try , it seems to work a bit better. Looks like a nicer cut , in less time.

Also as for modification for the hudy bit to the integy truer. I couldnt see how shaving is going to make it fit better? It fits fine its just too small / short. I dont really think it would be big of a deal as I just measure it with a caliper and it doesnt have to be exact for me. I just then set the truer to one setting and leave it and then true all 4 tires. This makes them all exact and thats really all I need.

How much off are you trying to cut? I think some said the Hudy motor fits, but I haven't tried that as yet. I wonder how much they go for.

Some say 2mm is what the integy can handle. I dont even push it that far. I normally do like .5mm otherwise it does kinda bog , but it doesnt stop at 2mm...but itll get close. I think its too much either way for a clean cut. Just do a little at a time. Easier on the motor , less heat on the blade and better cut tires.

You should only go 1-2mm increments from what I have read.

It is totally personal and a little bit common sense...I have seen ppl cutting carpet (EP) foams, from stock 62mm down to 58mm in 1 shot......yes, on my $450 Hudy Automatic, it is NOT a problem, but I just don't like to see the stress on the bite and the motor and those SMOKE..........yuke.

I cut it in 4 runs....1mm at a time, and watching the truer cutting left to right is actually FUN....I love to see those foams coming off nice and smooth. Took a while to cut 4 perfect one....but usually I have a whole week to cut couple set, or the worst, 1-2 hours between heats to cut 1 brand new set....I still have to find things to do beside cutting foams afterward.

Spent more time using the hudy carbide cutter on my integy. Works great. It clearly cuts better and does this in less time. Also from what Ive read you dont need to replace these? If so I think I found a winner.

AI- Did you mod it to fit and are using the same motor or did you swap it?

I didnt mod it and its the same motor. Seems to be better now that I tightened the motor more but it seems to have a click now...ah well.

Its definently better though.
