That's what I think also but I don't have to deal with tubed tires too much....yet.
However showed it to my friend, he is setting up his tire/restoration shop and he was very interested. His comment however.....I can make something like that in 5 minutes.Same comment he made when I showed him them "tire bars" and gave him the materials to make one.Done in about an hour! Give or take another hour and time to finish the tire machine, I am sure we could come out with something.
An anchor point....a lever/pusher....some UHMW.
