Is the hudy Bit a special one for the Integy lathe or does the standard Hudy Carbide Bit work? Anyone have a part number for it?

Thanks

Jeff

My 2 cents (racer for 15+ years)

If you really beleive that the Hudy is a much better unit, buy one that is used for 1/2 - 2/3 of the new price and you have spent the same money as if you purchased a new knock off.

If you beleive that the trueres are the same, but the new copy and be happy.

IMO - the best tire truer ever made was MaxMod - AC, Hudy can not even keep up with this on gas rubber. National race a few years back 1 working MaxMod, 8 or 9 dead Hudy's!!!

Down side they are no longer made, but a few still show up, like the one in my box!

Its the hudy carbide bit made for the hudy tire truers. It fits on the integy though but is short a couple of mm , I think -4.19mm to be exact. Maybe someone can verify my reading. So for example you set it at 60mm on the truer , itll true the tires to 64.19mm.

Part # HUD102067

just somethig to think about guy's....

I was very unhappy with the power of my Integy Auto Truer, but liked everything else about it. I decided to buy a Hudy motor for it

Installing the Hudy motor does require some minor modifications.....

1). you have to remove the plate from the Integy motor and reuse it on the Hudy motor.
2). remove (unsolder) both of the Dean's plugs from the circuit board on the Integy truer.... they will not clear the larger diameter Hudy motor.
3). direct solder the motor and 12V DC input to the circuit board.
4). turn the ON/OFF switch upside down as it will not clear the motor.
5). remove the fuse holder and stuff it inside the case or remount it somewhere else as it will not clear the motor in it's stock location. I also recommend putting a 30A fuse instead of a 20A fuse in there.

So........ for $218 ($110 for the used Integy AutoCut Truer, $25 for a Hudy carbide bit and $83 for the Hudy motor) I have an Automatic truer that kicks but

It's a HUDY in Integy clothing

i did this and i have a integy,but i went back to the hacksaw blades,the hudy wore out yes the hudy wore out,so now i just buy blades and cut them myself,i do change them alot tho to get a nice clean cut.

the Integy has way too little power in it's stock form. The Hudy motor is 1/3 larger and is what Integy should have used to begin with. It just squeezs in the Integy case

It takes way too long when truing up 3- 4 sets of 1/8 th scale tires. I had to go 0.5mm - 1.0mm a pass to get a good finish with the stock Integy motor and a Hudy carbide bit. Now with the Hudy motor I can take 2- 3 mm a pass with no problem.

The tires I'm truing are 35 shore only (1/8th On-road) and the Integy could not handle the fronts at all. If you are running 40/42/45 shore for 1/10th, I'd suggest the Hudy mod.

I also filled the stock fuse hole with an automotive undercoating plug to keep a clean look to the case. I epoxied a 30A circuit breaker inside the Integy case. It's an RV part from Borg Warner. If it happens to trip, it automatically resets itself after it cools down for a minute or so.

Another problem is the motor that scans across the bit , it also tends to lag and surge. Id figure that also gives the tires not such a great final finish.

I've cut the front tires 37 shore for my 8th onroad and upto 40 shore for sedan tires on my Integy with no issue. As with any lathe for best finish I cut off some small layers at a time. If I want to do a deep cut I sorta trim little by little otherwise yes the motor will bog. I wouldn't try this with the Hudy either. I'm just going to get the Hudy blade for my truer and that's that.
