A friend of mine gave me a big ass truing stand. It was destined for scrap and he saved it for me:
I couldn't find a lot of information on it on the interwebz, but supposedly it saves a lot of time when building new wheels. It has an integrated dishing feature, but I am not exactly sure how it works.
I've tried to true a wheel and it's very weird using the two roller dials as indicators. Supposedly, when you get used to it, truing becomes an even more intuitive process, thereby saving time, or something.
Has anyone used this truing stand? I'll say this much, it is effing stable! But that is probably on account of its weight, which is 57 pounds!
I would appreciate any input/experciences. Also, is it true that it is also suitable to build/true motorcycle wheels on, because if it is, i think I might try to rebuild an old scrap wheel just for fun.
