Homemade Bead Breaker
Arnold C. Weber, Frankenmuth, Mich.: "I'm sending along photos of a bead breaker I made for tractor tires. I always had trouble getting tires off but this little tool gets the job done. It's completely adjustable for different size tires. It's made from one piece of channel iron that lies face down as a base and two smaller pieces of channel that act as uprights. A cross bar pins to holes drilled in the two uprights. There's a curved push plate on one end and a hand-pumped 10-ton hydraulic jack on the other end. Raising or lowering the cross bar makes it easy to adapt to different size tires."
