Counting the ones I'm riding? None...

Though I think anyone could build a wheel that is round, true and dished using this thing. Of course i want even tension too.

Well, it might be good to go at it gradually. Expensive tools is one thing, skill is another. Not saying one can't go with the other, but the former doesn't help without the latter in the first place. Just saying if you are just starting out, a simple dishing tool and trueing stand is enough to get the skill down and get a feel for what works. Better tools only help you speed up the job once you got the skill down :thumbup:

I'm in no hurry. Nevermind I have so little time at the moment. School, moving, job, hobbies, life...

I have to give credit to Centrimaster for making a stand that makes putting a wheel round, true and dished in a hurry. With that said I've a ton to learn about getting a wheel evenly tensioned. I believe my first attempt was ruined by me working too fast. I'll try again tonight to get a wheel that hits the mark.

I ruined two nipples in my haste. Need to relax and take my time. If I had some strong whiskey I bet I could do a better job :P

Focus on that first. Get the tension even and only deviate the smallest amount possible, where absolutely necessary to get good true.

So here's some pics of the Centrimaster "Classic". Centrimaster claims you CANNOT stress relieve wheels in this stand, BUT I put this quick release on the wheel stand as you see in the pics below.

I can't get the wheel to pop off while applying torque/stress to the wheel with the quick release in place. I will try to stress relieve with the wheel in the stand after I get it up to tension. If it works I will be sittin' pretty :)

That's an awesome piece of machinery! Any chance you have a model name and
contact for buying one of this amazing rigs? Can also be used as a coffee table
conversation piece. Thanks!

Yes, the one you speak of is very pretty, but I don't see how it is any more functional than the cheapest ParkTool stand. With that said I'd like to have it on my coffee table too.

Hi Stu,

Any update? I was just wondering how the stand worked out for you.

Thanks
GS
