Park TS-2 Truing Stand Jammed, What Do I Do?

So I think I might have over tightened the stand after mounting the wheel. I have loosened the knob all the way off and the thing is still tightened where I cannot remove the wheel. Any ideas?

That handle is threaded, or should be, and screws onto the spindle. Screw it back on and then tighten that nut that's still on the spindle up against the handle to keep it from loosening. It's kind of like the setup on your axle with the bearing cone and the keeper locknut. Not sure if or what the torque would be. Maybe check with Park.

Edited to add that at second look of your photo I noticed that it appears you don't have the stand mounted....unless it's bolted from under the workbench some way. (Is that why the two pieces of wood are under the caliper arm mount...to keep it from tipping over?) The way I temporarily mount mine is by putting a 2' long 1x2 piece of wood through the truing stand's base and then clamping the wood to the edge of the workbench with two C-clamps. Works well for me. Keeps it nice and sturdy. Quick/easy removal if need be.

Thanks, that did the trick! I knew it had to be something simple.

Looks like the plastic cracked a bit (I did overtighten it apparently), and it came undone. I just screwed it in a bit more and it works.

Also, thanks for the C-clamp advice ForceD. I think I'll go that route in the future.
