One more comment. Should get a tire and rim on there part way done to demonstrate for those that haven't seen one before. We need the demonstrator there also with a bit of sweat on his brow. Squirting water on your face doesn't count. ;-)

We or rather my brother inlaw had one of these in the late 70s early 80s and we changed a lot of tires with it. They actually works really well just need a littlle elbow grease to go with them. smile image Did the big long bar thingy (technical term) come with it too? Looks much sturdier than the HF one that's for sure!

Cool piece of equipment. Reminds me of the older tire changer some very good friends had in their shop. This family owned a salvage yard which was located behind their house. I carried quite a lot of '57 Chevy parts out of their yard years ago.
I got to be such good friends with the family they would allow me in the yard even when they weren't home.
Then EPA went in there about 1986 and made them scrape most of the Tri-5 Chevies they had.

The old ones (of just about anything!) are generally better quality. They just don't make 'em like they used to...

Not as pretty as the Harbor Freight one, but a lot more substantial.

I really like this machine. The one I used years ago worked perfectly. My little one from harbot freight is now bent ( a little) but I will likely only use this one now.

These are what I used to see when I went to the tire shop with Dad!!! "-We don't need no pneumatic machine..." eh Jerry? Thing will likely outlast us all! Great find!
