Get an Edge on Performance with Racing Tire Needler Tools from Stewarts
Racing Tire Needler Tools
Tire Needler Tools makes tire preparation quicker, easier and more effective. Our standard needling tool is an aluminum needler cylinder that has two sealed bearings. The cylinder houses sharp, hardened pins designed to easily pierce the soft tread of your racing tires. A sturdy, coated steel handle provides a solid grip and simple control.
The needling process helps:
- Tires reach effective temperature quickly
- Dissipates excess heat more effectively
- Increases traction on just about any surface, dirt, asphalt or ice
- Improves the absorption rate of tire treatment and prep chemicals
- Proven to decrease lap times and increase performance
The end result is improved grip on just about any racing surface.
Stewarts hand needling tool is 100% designed and manufactured at our facility in South Carolina, USA. We use a fabricated steel handle, so that the tool can be mounted in a lathe, siping machine or other machine that uses a tool post. The tool can be disassembled completely and rebuilt for ease of maintenance.
Unlike many competitors, we machine and fabricate complete tooling and machinery we make in our facility. This gives us complete control over the delivery, consistency of product and quality of product. It also enables us to give complete product support, down to the nut and bolt. All our tooling and machinery is designed by our engineers with input from our customers, so that we come up with a solution that is perfect for you. There is no project to big, too small or too unique!

We can manufacture any length of comb you may require with round, square, rectangular or other ergonomic handles. We realize that groomers often travel, and we offer low profile, compact combs for these applications.
Fine, medium or course pin patterns, grooming and de-matting combs, a wide variety of pin diameter and length options give us the ability to manufacture a comb for your specific requirements. We work with local pet boutiques as well as nationwide distributors and listen to their requirements.
The pin tips for our combs are precision ground round, allowing the pin tips to smoothly massage the scalp without snagging or pulling on the hair follicle. Pets with short, medium or long hair coats or even double coats will all benefit from the details we engineer into our pinned products. The pins are ground and polished smooth for easy cleaning.
Stewarts of America also offers a variety of finishes to include nickel and chrome plating. Combs are made from both metallic and polymer materials. Stewarts works with both retailers and distributors to offer our precision combs to the grooming world.
Pinned Hand-held Tooling
Stewarts of America designs and manufactures a wide variety of pinned hand-held tooling. Simple hand perforating tools can be used hot or cold, and are perfect for economical R&D, or as full production tooling.
These hand tools are used in many different applications:
- Dough dockers for pizza and other cooking applications (increases surface area, therefore decreases cooking time and heat penetration of food)
- Lay up tools for carbon fiber and composite pre-peg films
- Small scale perforating of labels and narrow webs
- R&D perforating
- Rubber tire needling for tire prep
- Wallpaper micro-perforating
- Derma roller for skin exfoliating
- Porcupine roller
- Conveyor belt splicing tool (Degasses air between conveyor belt and rubber laminate during the vulcanizing process)
- Carpet seam rolling
- Flooring - eliminates gas bubbles formed in epoxy floor coatings
- Perforates to allow air, volatile gases, and some liquids and resins to flow through a substrate
- Can be used on porous product, such as foam, to provide a "surface roughing" which increases bonding between surfaces

Pinned Mill Discs
Stewarts manufactures pin-type impact mill discs for pin mills that reduces low to medium density materials to uniform fine particle size. Designs can vary in pin diameter and pin pattern, which offer varying degrees of impact and agitation to process materials. From high impact, high RPM grinding, to controlled, slower RPM mixing and blending, Stewarts of America Pin Mill Discs are easy to install, operate, are highly reliable, and are simple to adapt to any existing or new unit.
Our Pin Mill Discs are used with a wide range of particle sizes and applications. From grinding food grade materials such as flour, spices, sugar, salt, dry powders, dehydrated fruit and veggies, tea, preservatives, nutrients, sweeteners, starches, cattle feed, tobacco snuff and thickeners, to milling semi-abrasive materials such as Limestone, Zeolite, Gypsum, Bauxite, Clay and Non-Calcined Ceramics. Pin mills can also help improve the emissions of coal fired power plants, industrial boilers, municipal furnaces and bio-mass plants by generating finer particulates for incineration.
