I just had a customer ask how to adjust the "Ground Plane" on his new Hudy Tire Truer. Instead of trying to explain the impossible in writing I decided to join the 21st Century and post a YouTube video. Being retired I spend entirely too much time watching machining videos on there. If they can do it why not me? I didn't have anything but a tripod and a clamp for my iPhone. I did have scrap aluminum and 1/4-20 screws so getting a mount wasn't too much trouble. The volume is way too low and I did move out of the camera view a few times. I think for a first attempt it got my point across. Let me know what you think.

Excellent. Strange but I suddenly have an urge to buy a tire machine and use it in the rain.

Are there any videos on how to use the Hudy with or without your Knob Job?

Thanks,

Mark

Great question, Mark. I plan on making videos of the Knob Job installation and calibration in the near future. Just waiting for a customer to send me their new Hudy so I can film a clean install.

Chris,

I think what needs to be done is to edit the subject line to indicate, well, the subject! I don't think Dale will mind.

OK, I'll pin it as well.
