I was HOPING it would be about wheels like that. I hate to think of the trial and error it takes to get that set of spoked together.

There are spoke calculators out there for eccentric wheels. Its harder to find small quantities of the right spokes than to figure out which lengths you need.

Universal Cycles sells individual DT and Wheelsmith spokes in lots of sizes:

Here's a calculator, don't know if it works, never tried it:
