No, actually it is kinda fun. And everybody's been very cool and patient and easy to work with. Plus it's one way to "give back" to ADV. So I don't mind, really

That is awesome!!! Thank you again for everything.

Now I have decided to not invest in the tire changer, I am going to get a No-Mar at the end of the year. Hey PMR want to arrange a group buy on those?

I built my own changer about 3 years ago, I've changed a couple hundred moto tires since. It mounts into the receiver hitch on the pickup and I work off the tailgate. I do use a few bits from NoMar, but prefer a different mount - demount bar. But the No-mar is sweet, I just didn't want to spend the dough.

And, it's a pretty simple design- I can't believe this wasn't invented a long time ago.
If you ever been to a Machine Tool Show you may have seen the Hardinge Lathe exhibits where they are running actual parts. These demos are seldom reproduceable on real factory floors because of the hundreds of hours that go into fine tuneing the operations. this guy has probably done this several dozen times with the same wheels and can now do it in his sleep, unlike you and me who will bust our nuts on the first half dozen tyre changes.

Point well-taken, but if you scroll back just a little bit, you will see a video from an inmate who was brave enough to record himself on his first time using this tool. All things considered, I thought it looked pretty easy.

"When we did the GB, it took me one evening just to unpack the shipment, another to repack the tools into the USPS boxes, and 2 evenings to print all the shipping labels and attach. The USPS sent a truck to my office to pick all the boxes up, I only had to go to the post office twice and that was for Canadian inmates. The hardest part was keeping ADV screen names, real names, email addys and shipping addresses straight, as well as who wanted what LOL."

use a spreadsheet or Data base to keep track of all inmates and items ordered and then mail merge the home addresses. It shouldn't take more than a few minutes to print out mailing labels. Once the SS or DB is set up it can be used forever. This shouldn't be a big chore with today's technology and you already have a computer...

Have you considered making a Google Doc and letting them fill in their own information?

you didn't do anything wrong looks like a good tool for those flexible sidewall motocross tires you use, but your video pretty much convinced me that this tool will never work with my Heidenau K37 6 ply 761# load, sidecar tyres.

wait a minute! I don't recall you using any spit on the bead. That would help things quite a bit. maybe it ain't so bad a tool. Did you use some soap or KY it up a little?

sounds like a better idea.

my SS & DB mail merge are prolly out dated work flows now-a-days.
