I have had a Park Truing Stand for decades, but mostly to take some of the sting out of beat to death on a regular basis aluminum wheel sets. Now that i finally want to build my own wheels i have been collecting some tools. This is what they say the basics are... Truing stand such as the Park TS-2.2. Truing keys for the spokes. Measuring tool or Vernier caliper. Spoke prep or a lube. Proper length spokes (for disc wheels each side requires two different lengths) Spoke nipples. Calculator (to calculate spoke length) Spoke Tension Meter (if you want to get fancy, or accurate... ) I have this stand: My buddy @SS Barby gave me a Park Tool TM 1 Spoke Tension Meter, cuzz he had an extra! Some have said to take an old wheel and disassemble and put it back together as your first project. Seems like a great idea as you know the components are right. Wheel Builders? Any suggestions?
