Wheel truing stands…
I’m very pleased with http://www.on-one.co.uk/i/q/TOJWWTS/jobsworth-wheel-truing-workshop-standard which is a blatent rip off of Parks industry standard stand.Posted 3 years agovincienupSubscriber
Ok, I’ve played with a Minoura and quite like it, I know I can use a bike but it’s more convenient being able to set a stand up on the kitchen table. Musson’s is out as I have none of the tooling I would need plus I don’t have handy off cuts around.
What’s the TS8 like? It looks substantial but I’ve read a couple of reviews where they’ve resorted to shimming with paper on the sliding dropout as the set screw wasn’t working.
Any thoughts and alternatives… But I probably should have pointed out that the TS8 and Minoura offerings are the most I’m prepared to spend 🙂Posted 3 years agokcalSubscriber
Ultimate / Feedback worth a look. Has some niggles but def. worth scoping out.Posted 3 years agozilog6128Subscriber
Never done any wheel truing/building but it’s something I’ve always been keen to try. Looking at the On-One site their Jobsworth Pro looks like an impressive bit of kit. Anyone used/got one? Would it be suitable for building as well as truing (including dishing as mentioned above)?Posted 3 years agosomafunkSubscriber
I have the jobsworth pro stand with the dial gauges and whilst it’s a great bit of kit that makes the job easier for me, i feel for the average joe public who wishes to have an occasional wheel fettle the standard Jobsworth stand would be easier to use. I say this as the dti gauges are so sensitive that all it takes for the dial to swing wildly is a a sticker on the rim, a slight raised section where the rim is pinned or even blowing on the gauge itself will cause it to vary.
I’ve use dti gauges for various mech engineering stuff for years so i’m perfectly happy using them but some peeps may be confused as to what way the buckle runs as the gauges move very rapidly.
EDIT : And you’ll need a wheel dishing tool as well.Posted 3 years ago
