Thanks for the replies -

I'm confused about one thing though; I'm still using the same hub, just threading on a new freewheel. So why would that change the dropout spacing? Do I need to add a spacer on the axle because the new freewheel will be wider?

I get how to do the spreading with the 2x4 but what's the DIY method for dropout alignment? I'm not dropping $60+ on the Park Tool!
