    I break beads with just a hi-lift jack tucked under the rear bumper.

    I normally do too, but these ATV tires weren't having it. I even rigged up a bar and plate to push down off of my jeep's plow hydraulics. A bead for a 9" rim just doesn't have enough stretch to it to give up easily. This pushes down and in just at the perfect angle.

    This thing should make simple 2-second work of car and light truck tires.

    I normally use a Cobalt drill on stainless.......with any common lubrication...........It also tends to like constant feed pressure...........I suspect the Onion may act as coolant or perhaps a form of lubrication.....?

    The trick to drilling stainless steel is a slower spindle speed than conventional steel with a heavier feed rate and keep it cool with oil, water or whatever. I use water soluable oil in my shop as a lubricant and coolant. Do not let the stainless change colors or heat up, it will work harden and then you will end up breaking the drill or welding it to the stainless steel. A 5mm drill bit should run between 750-1000rpm maximum in stainless steel.

    I have had a Husky 460 for quite awhile and it has been a great saw. Probably cut over a 100 cords of wood with it now and it just keeps coming back for more.

    Always used Husqvarna since they were new in this country. Always admired their design and durability.

    I've spent many days cutting firewood and cleaning up storm damage with my Husky 460 and it just keep going! I wouldn't hesitate to get another to replace it. I lot track of how many chains I've filed away.
