Anyone seen this yet?

That video is better than porn!

If I owned that I'd have to tear all my wheels apart just so I could have the pleasure of rebuilding them :mrgreen: .

Have to admit that looks sweet...bet that's the stand God uses. Still, my stand is going to rock! No more ordering wheels from "reputable" wheel builders :?

How many times you guys stress relieve the wheels you build for yourselves?

Is this the first time you've built a wheel? If so post a video of you using that stand. That thing is gonna make you pull you hair out :P :P :P

Thanks for the vote of confidence :roll:

I'm going to loose my cherry by disassembling some old wheels I have laying around and building them back up using the same components. Will start with a front wheel, 20h radial.

Brew some strong coffee and make some biscuits...blackberry preserves...will make for a nice Sunday :)

I would agree it's pretty, but I don't think it would be more accurate than a Park. Still think my German (Centrimaster) stand will make wheels that are a piece of art.

Stu, the one that thisisatest showed is a p&k lie truing stand. The preciray is also a cool stand and has lots of retro appeal. However I think if God is a wheelbuilder he's probably using the Holland Mechanics manual stand.

The artist blesses the canvas, not the brushes.

Is this what you are talking about? Looks like you'd need a graduate degree in computer science to turn it on.
