I bought a iron from speedway as well as a Ideal from Jr.

both dont seem to work worth a carp to me??

granted my tires are probably 40 degrees, should that stop me from being able to groove them?

should I put them in the house over night so they are 75 degrees and try again tommorrow?

ok Im a dummie.

I read the directions in the ideal groover, the other one didnt come with any.

I guess I supposed to put the blades in there and set them to the depth I want useing the brass end as a guide only??

I was just trying to use the brass end. Ill try again tommorrow.

A little baby powder on the tire helps the blade glide through the tire.

thanks it works good now, I just did 6 tires for this weekend no sweat..

now I know how some of those guys who ask about mounting pedals, or how to mount weight jacks feel.. since none of those come with directions either.

cant wait to race friday,sat, sunday.
