    Smile Smashing donuts

    I hate doing tyres
    Really hate it
    So I wanted to reduce the time I spend in front of a Hudy.
    It can take ages to turn down donuts
    So I got a used Hudy, stripped it down and cleaned it



    Removed the grit from the drum (that's not easy!!)



    Reapplied 40grit from a sanding belt



    Now its smashes out donuts from full-size to just-oversize (17mm) in 1m15sec. They also don't cup like they do when you try and do a standard Hudy quickly. Does make one helluva mess tho!!



    Then they'll go in my other Hudy for finishing to size with the diamond drum....

    Will prob be able to do a set every 10min easy. Much better!!! :-)

    Would be nice and easy except Drum size for a Hudy is 1.25" though, not 1.5"

    This is the one, bought some of the 80 last year, nice tight fit on the drum without having to remove the original grit:

    Smashing donuts

    Now I use the BSV F.I.T.T system and can accurately core them down to within 1mm of final size
