My old neighbor who has a auto repair shop call me , ask me to stop by the shop . Tells me he selling the place and ask me if I wanted this . Well before the words left his mouth I sad Hell ya.  It may be old (but so am I) but it works just fine.

You don't need them every day, but you'll be glad you have it every time you use it.

With the two girls driving ,the oldest going through right front tires ,and the youngest keep pick up nails and screws , now  I just need a balancer . And I will be in the tire repair business.

Looks like a Coats 40-40.  They are very handy.  Dad has one in his shop and over the decades I've used it many times.

   just get a bubble balancer, I have had a tire changer for years and always just use a simple bubble balancer. 90% of the time it will be fine, I can only remember one tire I ever had to take in to get balanced and that one turned out to be bent.

I have a friend that sold his station in the 70's and still has his changer. He comes in handy quite often. :D

That is a FACT !

5 (yes FIVE) teenagers at one time in this house and the thing probably saved me the cost of a new machine. I got mine the same way as you and I will never part with it.  Love "OLD TOOLS" that still work the way they were designed.
