Minoura truing stand, Spin Doctor pro II

are the minoura truing stand the performance brand Spin Doctor II the same? They seem to have good reviews and a nice price.

I've got the Minoura, but I also tried the Spin Doctor II. At the time when I bought it, I thought the dish gauge on the Minoura was better, but in retrospect, neither stand has a dish gauge that is really that usefull. The Minoura has been a reliable stand that I've used to true and build wheels. Recommended for the price...

Im actually thinking about making my own stand out of steel. I have heard the minoura could be a bit beefier, and after midterms this week i am taking a course that teaches you to use a CNC machine so i will have the material and be able to amke the parts needed. I might not, worth a try

It shouldn't be that difficult to make. The biggest challenge will be to align everything reasonably well so that your dish comes out properly. If you look at Park's pro stand, it's all stamped steel, no CNC except for maybe the base? Are you going to CNC the whole stand?
