I just built my first wheel, after a couple hiccups (namely, accidentally dishing the wrong direction, oops!) its looking good..
After reading a few online sources, many seemed to say making do without truing stands and dishing tools was pretty easy, but a tensionmeter was a good investment. So, I bought one to try out.
However, it is not clear what I am supposed to do with this tensionmeter... I can measure the spoke tension, but how is that helpful as I have dished the wheel and if it was too tight how could I even fix it without throwing the wheel off? I mean given a spoke size once the wheel is dished doesn't it just require that tension? If I add up my wheels and find the tension is too high what should I do?
