If you are measuring 14/15/14, then use DB14. If 15/16/15, then use DB15.
You'll be clamping the thin section is each case.
Typically when using SS14, I get tension to the point such such that two lines fall between 80 and 75. However, I'll have one line a tad closer to 80 while the other is a tad further from 75. This is what I consider to be @110 kgf which is my goal on rear drive side.
Point being is...you're allowed to estimate.
I find the Wheelsmith tool quicker to work with - while the Park version has a more comprehensive, broken out and detailed chart with a little more resolution.
The Wheelsmith tool is 10X sturdier too - I practically get a heart attack any time the Park tool ponders the edge of a table.
4000+ wheels built since 1984...
1. I do not claim to be an expert in bicycle mechanics despite my experience.
2. I like anyone will comment in other areas.
3. I do not own the preexisting concepts of DISH and ERD.
4. I will provide information as I always have to others that I believe will help them protect themselves from unscrupulous mechanics.
5. My all time favorite book is:
Kahane, Howard. Logic and Contemporary Rhetoric: The Use of Reason in Everyday Life
