Default Home made tyre truer?

Has anyone made a home made tyre truer (1/10 nitro foam)? Can you give me any hints? What speed is ideal to spin the tyre? Any better cutters than others? I don't need automatic, just accurate and effective.

My thought was to use a stock 540 motor with a small pinion to drive a belt to a drive shaft with a larger gear, with guide shaft in parallel (raised and lowered with a thread for accuracy/repeatability) to run a cutter along.

Any tips/designs/advice/critcisms?

Thanks

Josh

You are going to need a stock motor something more then a 540. For the gearing I used the biggest 48 pitch gear that I could find and and a pretty small pinion. For the cutter I used a Ryobi one inch sanding tube around a one inch dow rod. I still have it if you want to pay the shipping it's yours at no extra charge.

Thanks! Good idea using the sanding tube. Got a photo of the setup? Any idea how much postage is to Australia from there? What does it all weigh?

Cheers,

Josh
