Tire Truing ideas?

I've been wanting to feel the difference of driving with trued tires for quite some time. Unfortunately the entry point of $200 AND a power source has been a hurdle that I have not been willing to overcome. I garage race HFAY with a couple of friends, with an occasional trip to race with PDX (before the COVID).

For someone that is not a top-level racer (my whole "club" is very middle of the pack in HFAY). Do you think it makes a difference?

Second question: has anyone tried to make their own? I was imagining making a stand that would hold a Dremel in place, but since I have never seen one in person it is difficult to figure out the best way to do it. I am moderately handy, one of our racer is extremely handy, and we have access to CAD, 3d printing and basic machining tools.

Thanks for the help! Sidenote: two of us were HFAY top 10 this season! I guess showing up and finishing races was more important than being fast this season unfortunately.
