The artist blesses the canvas, not the brushes
Never a truer word said...
As for starting with an old 20h radial.....dunno about coffee and biscuits; i think it'll be taco's for tea
start easy- 32h with new stuff.
As for them stands with DTI's etc- think i'll stick with my minoura set that cost £75. Its probably cost me less than a quid a wheel...
Working on a 20h front would, in my humble opinion, be a great start to learning the ins and outs. Not planning on riding the wheel so much as learning from it.
My second goal is to eat as many biscuits and preserves as my stomach can manage while washing them down with gourmet coffee...
Third goal would be to take my precious time...seems rushing things will get me into trouble from all that I've read.
Fourth...stress relieve the wheel repeatedly and re-tweaking. Repeating this process till I cannot compromise the wheel's integrity with reasonable stress.
In the end I want to build wheels I'd have no reservation in giving to my children for riding centuries in downtown Baghdad.
today we ship your goods by DHL.
The tracking No. is
We wich an successful job with Centrimaster
wheel truing stand.
Best regards Wilhelm Schon,
Those crazy Germans' english sucks, but they sure do build great sh!t
2) Congratulations to the OP for doing it himself. It's very satisfying. A lot of great information here. http://www.miketechinfo.com/new-tech-wheels-tires.htm
3) How much is that stand?
Lots of luck.
I know Park stand are far less, but this stand just spoke to me
Wish I had a welder...I'd weld the base to a slab of plate steel...make it rock solid and stable. Think screwing it down to a table will surfice, but...
I'm the kind of guy who feels warm and fuzzy when I have a dial indicator telling me where I am versus using my eyeballs. Plus, who really needs an excuse to buy a toy? A toy that will pay for itself?
I'll eventually build wheels for myself and friends, but for now I'm learning. I don't want to build a wheel without knowing precisely to what tension, trueness and roundness the wheel is before placing it on a bike. If I had built a few thousand wheels maybe I wouldn't feel that way. I look at this trueing stand as a crutch till I can learn to walk (build) on my own.
Once I get good (if ever) I might have to build wheels for cyclists in town...I see more and more cyclists here everyday. Then I could quit my day job
