Proper spoke tension
Too much information is a bad thing.
Got one of those Park spoke tension-meter things for Christmas. I've build wheels for years without one, but am now wonder what is the 'proper' tension. I have always managed to get them relatively even, but now I have this guage that tells me what it really is. I know it depends on rims and spoke size. I have not had much luck finding an answer in any of the usual places (Zinn's, etc.).
