    Not all my tire changer pics loaded up so here are more but remember it is still in the building stages and rough.
    As you see in photos I have made a bead breaker handle.
    Not shown but I will post later is the pieces I made to thread down on top of mounted tire to hold tire in place and so I can use a tire iron to remove and install tires.

    I lucked up and got a Ranger rim clamp tire machine free recently.

    A bottle jack fits the edge of the rim perfectly.

    I just let my tire guy take care of my tires. Don't have enough flats to worry about fixing tires.

    Your right about bottle jack. They are so useful in so many ways. You can't beat the power of hydraulics

    Yea most of the time Plugs will repair tires. Take years to wear down a lawn tire. Most tire places around here don't make you wait too long. So I would rarely use it. Probably just get it in way. Trip over it and break my neck:laugh:
    Got to hand it to you for creativity :waving:
