Merry Christmas to you too!
I was going to say you also need a dishing tool, but the I went to Performance to check out the stand you got. It says you don't need one, just flip the wheel.
Overall, I'd say you should do pretty well with the stand you got. At least the first 50 wheels.
I use the Park Tool TS-2 and a Campy dishing tool. Unfortunetly, the Campy tool isn't much good for smaller wheels though. But my TS-2 has been wonderful
for the last 18 years!
As a tip, when buiding a wheel, thread the nipples on until there is 1 or 2 threads showing on each spoke. Then tighten each nipple 1/2 turn untill all the spokes have a bit of tension. At that point start working on trueness and roundness. Loose spokes are easier to work than tighter ones. Once the wheel is pretty true/round, tighten all spokes 1/2 turn. Retrue/round the wheel. Repeat until all spokes are pretty snug. Then go in 1/4 turn increments until spokes are up to tension. Retrue the wheel after 50-100 miles of riding.
Enjoy & Happy Holidays!
