Thanks for answers to my post a week ago re 27" vs 700c rim sizes. I can't find that anymore.
PG2X3 is obviously a minimalist and I appreciate that. But I think I need more help ie. new tools to build a wheel. ;)
Any comments re self centering truing stands vs a stand and dishing tool?
Any specific rec's? I'm thinking one of the less $ ones $50-80 range.
Tacx do some nice equipment.

My Park wheel trueing stand is supposed to be self-centering, but it requires more maintenance than I give it to keep it that way. For the most part, I just reverse the wheel in the stand to check for dish.

The tacx does look nice. Thanks for advise. I'll go with a truing stand and get a dishing tool later if needed.
I have a cheapo Minoura truing stand that I use- I flip the wheel to get close on dish. Then, I borrow a Park dish tool for the fine adjustments. I've built 4-5 wheels and they were VERY close to being dished properly with my flip the wheel method.
