Nah I doubt it that you ever had one, anybody that owns one will pretty much stick with it due to the reliability and longetivity of the Hudy Carbide Cutter.

I have a Hudy Tire Truer with a Hudy carbide bit which I bought brand new in February 2001 and have been using it regularly to true tires for my 8th and 12th scale car and never had any problems with it. It still cuts the same way it did several years ago.

LOL This guy is funny. LOL

Dude, I use Carbide tools to cut heat treated steel and they last a good while.

You're telling me that a foam tire is going to wear out a bit made from a material that is used to cut steel? HELL NO!!!

You must have been doing something wrong, or you're lying. That carbide bit will outlast the truer.

If it will outlast the truer, why do they sell replacement blades?

Because it is so good that people that have different brand tire truer buys them and install it on there truer.

I can't remember what online hobby store I was at but someone sells a knock-off of a Hudy bit. It looks just like a hudy Blade;but the cost of it was only $17.00 US(Be careful). I like the Hudy bit also; but I can't live with it taking my truer out of calibration(Ofna truer). So I removed mine. But my dual JIG saw blades (24 tpi) works just fine for me. I love the quality. The only drawback is I can't take off more than 1.5mm at a time off the tire.

dont worry about that you dont want to take to much off in one pass coz this will heat the foam ( now you guy's can say im nuts)
when you heat the foam the tire will run different and not work as well iv noticed
i feel this way coz iv done it,take alot off in one pass heat the tire but i was in a hurry and i noticed the car drove weired
now i always take a little off at a time and i get a better finish on the tire and it works better.
to me its like truing a com,a little at a time is way better.and when you do that with a hudy bit it dosent come out the same but if you guys like it thats great
this hudy copy,dose it come in a hudy bag.

Hudy needs to build a machine that will detect the very very very very very few posts that Walley makes that are actually worthwhile. It will need to be quite selective and intricate as he makes A LOT of posts and not many are worth the bandwidth.

Mr Hudy: You have your next challenge.

In the meantime whatever Walley says... do the opposite. (This doesn't always hold true, but I would prefer to keep the odds in my favor).

Who said walley can't have an opinion. I just think a great deal of what he posts is not good advice. I can have an opinion too.
