Unfortunately the imgur new software is not displaying in the correct

All holes drilled have brass bushings to prevent the threads from eating
the wood away.
My son is racing so I built this to keep his wheels true.
No not yet. One thing at a time.
He hasn't mentioned he wants one yet. Seems like a piece of cake.
Probably I would use simple T - Track.
But I don't know yet.
I liked the idea of knowing how much it was out with the dial.
Not sure he needs it, but I offered it when I saw that HF had a coupon
for the indicator. I think the points will be enough, if he doesn't use
the dial, I'll get it back.
The points are just dowels painted red on hangar wire. Make a nice sound
when it rubs...
In the olden days we just turned the bike upside down and gave the
wheel a spin, then held a piece of chalk close enough to the side of
the tire that it would mark the high places. Where the mark was we
tightened the spokes from the other side of the hub. Then did it
again marking the other side of the wheel, etc. Close enough for
country boys who had never seen a caliper brake.
As mentioned, a dishing tool and roundness tool are essential. Essential. A roundness gauge could be made by fastening a board across the front of the stand with a stick going out to the rim. The dishing tool could be a U shaped stick with a copper tube in the center. Copper tube would go over the smaller diameter outer ends of the axles.
