For the ones who have the integy and have problems are we all talking about the same model? Is it the one with the carrying case or what? I have no problem with that one at all cutting whatever tire. Heck let me charge up my gear incase I get to head out tomorrow.

i just scooped up the integy auto truer but it did not have a manual. the only thing that i have a question with is - to set the camber cut, i have to loosen the 2 screws on the bottom and just adjust it?

thanks in advance

Hi guys:

I've just bought a hudy tire truer and I'm disapointed with the carbide cutter... I used to have a 3 racing tire truer and usualy it cut the tire in only 1 cyle. With my huddy truer, I need to do several cycles (with the same diameter setings) and every cycle it cuts the tire a little. Moreover, the tire gets really hot. Is it normal? I think my carbide cutter is defective....

regards

Eduardo

Yes that is correct.

lol. as long as you let me help you break in that new hudy setup station!

i have played with it a little and do not notice any bogging yet but i'm only doing 1/10 scale tires with the hardest i tried at 42 shore. my question is, what kind of power supplies were people using? i have a converted pc power supply with 15 amps so i dont know if that is the difference.

my only other issue is that the ruler on the truer does not match what i have when i measure it (the tire) with my calipers. actually its quite different like 2-3mm at least. is there a way to dial in the truer to match my calipers or do i have to just file the end of the saw blade down?

I have had my Integy tire truer for almost four years not. The thing works great! I cut 1/10 and 1/8th tries all day. No problems what so ever. I don't treat the thing like its fragile and don't abuse it either. I do have to comment on Hudy tools vs. Intgy. Hudy steel is a lot stronger than Integy. I run Novarossi engines and have broken many Integy drivers while taking the engines apart. Hudy, I am still on the first driver.. Hudy, materials are a lot better. I'm just curious if the truers that Hudy sells are made by them ? They do look very simular to other truers.

Yes, Hudy makes their own truers, other similar looking truers are Hudy copies, but IMO they don't cut as good. I just replaced my Ofna auto truer with the Hudy one and noticed the difference right away after cutting first set of tires...
