I've just bought a spoke tensionmeter
Does anyone know roughly/specifically how many kg/f of spoke tension for the old Shamal aluminium clincher rims?
That info is nowhere to be found on the wast internet. ... 57A99.jpeg

( ... &AbsPos=10 "the ones in the middle")
I would possible say '91 '92

Or if someone knows a good old thumb of rule for older rims.

Not much. I saw them cracked few Times. Eyeletted? Try nipple washer just to be safe. And round 2.0 spokes in rear that will provide stiff build without going too high on tension.

The rims had square washers in back in the day. not sure if normal washer will even fit. It is one of those rims that is a pain to build with done it once and never again.
