    I think they are under $1000.

    I have heard good things about this one from Harbor Freight. Reading the verbiage, I think it may require the basic tire changer as a base.



    Eventually, I'll figure out how to do "clean" hyperlinks.

    If you insist on exercising a right to burn our flag, first be so kind as to wrap yourself in it and then douse yourself with gasoline just before you strike the match.

    IMHO the only tire changer worth having is a Coats 220 (unless of course you can afford one of the Coats big-rigs). I've had mine for over 18 years now and when I need replacement parts, no problem.

    You should be able to find a new one for ~$700. Try scoping out your local larger bike shops. They often sell off older ones if they are moving up to more automated changers.

    It's your regular 12x12 white and black tile.

    I assume it's in the garage. Have you had any trouble with the tile lifting under warm tires?

    I need to do something for my flooring and have considered tile.

    Man. I starting to think we need a "Show your Garage" thread.....

    Actually that's my workshop. The garage is still unfinished. My usual practice is to use gray epoxy in the garage.

    That's what I used in Boston, the Ben Moore Silicone based epoxy concrete stain.

    Everything would just bead on it.

    Can you tell me Coates web site address. I tried to locate and I'm not having any luck.

    Coats Manufacturing does not sell direct. You might try just searching on COATS 220 and you should come up with a couple of distributors/sellers.

    Here is one I came across:
    wikco.com

    and the price seems about right since it looks like they include shipping. Good luck.
