Tire bead breaker from wood scraps!

Tire bead breaker from wood scraps, because I like to build goofy stuff.:biggrinjester: The stand under the table is actually a front wheel chock I use to hold the bike sometimes. You could use any similar leg material.

Looks like the kind of thing I'd make. See? It does pay to keep those scraps of 2x4 and plywood!

Only problem is that it occupies a lot of real estate for a seldom-used tool. I can't spare that kind of square footage, but if you can, awesome.

Garage
I have a similar setup for a jointer and planer. It folds up against the wall when not in use. It looks like that would be possible with a tire station too.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s
See https://www.stromtrooper.com/general-...nicknames.html

Oh! I just realized what you meant -- see? You are truly my brother:

I credit Don Eilenberger (of the BMW "big list") for the design.

Shucky darn, for the trouble I go to the local tire guy. I just priced a series of tires and may go with the Anakees because of the price of a set of tires mounted and balanced.
It's just horrible what the tire makers want. $300+ semolians for new rubber. WTF?

You got it! A big thanks to Don E. I don't leave it assembled, 6 wood screws and it is stored flat against the wall.

Good idea greywolf. I actually have done that with a work bench on the opposite wall. It's on door hinges and just falls flat against the wall when not required.
