If using an air cannon remember to brace the wheel in position or risk it flying across the workshop ! Worst case I had was a balloon tyre from a lawn tractor where the new tyre had been stored in a stack on its side . The air cannon seated the bead but then the shape of the tyre pulled it back off again . Had to run an air line to the valve and use the air cannon simultaneously .I'm not sure this is as easy as some think. I had experience recently where I could not seat the beads on two scooter tyres. You cannot get enough air in through the empty valve stems using an average domestic compressor. Some of the tyre shops use a compressed air "bomb" which shoots sufficient air in between the rim and bead and I had to resort to this. Possibly its easier with bigger tyres but you may wish to bite the bullet once the tyre is on the rim and get a professional to set the bead. Just my two cents worth.
Yes, that's pretty much where I ended up too! The compressor I went for is only 0.75hp, which I make about 500W, and a 2.4A draw at 230V, so hopefully within the range of the 10A power lead.Electrically I don’t think you’re ok.
With the motor rated at 2200w and using 230v as your supply voltage( which is pretty spot on: unless you have a 500kv transformer 25 meters away) you’ll be drawing 9.6 amps as your best scenario.
The longer the extension lead, the more voltage drop you’ll have. When your volts drop your current will increase. Hence the reason a 10 amp cord ain’t recommended.
All the plugs are inside the house - inside would be OK for the bike tyre (so long as the missus is out!), but any other jobs like airbrushing, using a cleaning gun, or even pumping up the car tyres would need the extension.Why do you need an extension cord? If you are mounting tires roll it to the compressor. If you need something else buy a longer air hose.
Check! 2 pairs in the postAlso get 2- sets of rim protectors (or more)! Their cheap and, have enough of them to never have to stick a tire spoon against the rim itself. I agree with @DucDucGoose, no way I’m letting some 16 year old kid at the shop wreak my nice black wheels. Cause certainly the 20 veteran/ master mechanic isn’t going to be the one busting tires.. Most shops have some sort of “minimum damage clause” too, so unless they completely destroy your wheel, your not getting compensation for scratched rims.
I have used a C-clamp to break beads many times. Then I bought a regular bead breaking leverage unit.BTW, has anyone tried using a g-clamp to break the bead? Seems a plausible option...
