Default Wheel truing stand

My $5 wheel trueing stand used for making wheels run true and lacing on new rims, respoking etc.

And here is the $5 wheel truing stand:


Use old worn wheel bearings, b ut not notchy, with WD40 for lube, for balancing. Nice free movement.


And to get the initial spoking nice and centred, drill a hole on the work bench for the axle, scribe a circle where the rim goes and locate it with wooden blocks screwed to the bench. Wooden shims provide correct offset.
