These are pictures of a tire changer I made from plans I found in Hotrod Magazine 40 yrs ago. The top photo is the 2" dia post with an X welded to it and embedded in the concrete. Welded to the post is a piece of 1/2" steel plate at a convenient height to mount the tire on. Also welded to the post are two pieces of steel with several pairs of 1/4" holes in them to put the bead breaker in. according to the height of the tire. The second picture is the bead breaker. Make the curved piece to fit about a 15" rim and then it will work on most tires. the curve goes toward the post like this )o . Place the tire on the floor against the post. attach the bead breaker to the post at the right height so the curved part fits on the tire next to the rim. This bead breaker handle is short,(it's what I had in the scrap pile) and then put on a square tube extension over the short handle. Then put your weight on the handle and break the bead, then flip the tire and do it again. Put the tire up on the 10" round plate bolt it down and remove the tire with a tool like the one from Gemplers. make your own tool, I paid $80 20 years ago. I never found a bead I couldn't break with this machine. I can't give you any dimensions because I don't live there anymore but it's not that hard to figure out.

I have the one from JC in the picture. Had it for years used it to replace front 9pli tires on my backhoe. Last summer used it to break bead on the rear tires of my H with wheels and tires still on tractor.

Seems like one could be made from an old wheel, hub, and axle laying around.

I bought one of these at a garage sale back in the 70s for 2 bucks. Still use it regularly.
Works much better than you can imagine from looking at the picture.

I've got one that looks just like that, but different colors. A friend had a service station for about 50 years in our little community. I worked part time for him, and when he retired he gave it and some other good old tools to me. They work good. Mine wasn't branded Whitney, but obviously made by the same people. It has broke down 100's of tires, and is still good for 100's more.

Your little "JCWhitney Exclusive" sign hides the best part - the adjustment slots to allow for different width tires.

I welded one up from photos.My son gave me a length of 2 inch pipe.Its much better than a Horror freight unit.all the parts were on hand and didnt cost 49 bucks.My base plate is made from 3 in channel and a 7/8 threaded rod runs up the center of the pipe.

I have a Harbor Freight one. It's great. Couldn't build it from scatch for the cost. Sometimes I buy bulky things from Harbor Freight to cut it up because the metal is cheaper than from the nearby junk yard.

I have the HF one too. Been using it for years. It's a little light, but works fine for me. I change a LOT of tires.
