I did my own manual tire changer from civic drum hub.

I found long steel pipe thats feats inside center hole of the hub and weld it up.

Than I also welded small piece of metal on the bottom of the hub and drilled four holes and screwed the hub to the wood that is razing the rim high to have clearance to not touch the table.

To secure the tire changer I'm screwing it to my work table or anything heavy.

I also made bed brake set up like you see on the second picture.

to take the tire off, first time I got bended 1/2 pipe then I upgraded it to 3/4 of the thickness and made the end of the bar from nylon material to prevent the scratches on the rim

I also put rotor on the top, it could be the drum as well, to make proper fitment with the rim.

This thing can be universal if I'm using only one stud, than it can feat any rim also

Yes I can buy it cheap from HF. But I don't like It because It have to be bolted to the concrete, and my is much smaller and lighter
