I built a thing

I am interested to hear about the aggravation and time it saves.

It is an improvement on a previous model I made. The original was necessitated when I started getting a lot of internal nipple wheel builds and I found starting the nipples trying to insert them like I normally did holding the rim upright in my lap just wasn't working. The jig worked well for that, and when I started doing more straight pull spoke builds, I found it worked well for that too. 

I made this video when I built the original jig. The new version is actually built on the old. I just turned it upside down and built on the bottom. It allows for the spokes to hang down so I can preload all the heads out spokes on the top side.

Great video, Dan!

Except it doesn't handle the capacitive redactance as well as it probably should. I still need to work on that.

Have you considered passively varying the oscillations of the lunar waneshaft?

But hey, if the gubmint will pay me this for it, the party will be at my place.

When I get settled and we take care of a few things on the priority list, we may need to talk about a rebuild to my Stradalli wheels. 

I would be happy to do that for you but cross border shipping can be pretty brutal on a wheel set.

Well, I built a couple of sets with it, and it works as intended, but I did make a small modification. I found that the hub was perched a bit high in relation to where the rim lay, so rather than shorten the mast on the hub support, I added some raised supports for the rim. It's at the perfect height now.

 If you watched the video above, you saw the different hub supports that I made for QR and solid axle hubs. The QR support worked sort of OK for thru axle hubs, but I decided to make another support with a 12mm rod for those. Works great.
