Couple of things:
1. In the end, a trueing stand simply provides a stable place to measure from. I don't see anything awsome or magical about a TS-2 or any other trueing stand. Mine's bolted to a piece of 2 x 8 so that I can move it around.
2. Radial untrueness is a lot harder to fix than side-to-side wobble. Sometimes if I loosen all of the spokes until only 1 thread is showing then gradually retension the spokes in small, equal amounts, the up-and-down wobble will go away. Good luck with that.
3. It's important to do side-to-side trueing by thghtening and loosening opposing pairs of spokes an eual amount. If you don't, you might fix the side-to-side untrueness but at the expense of introducing a new, up-and-down wobble.
