I knew we had a truing stand that we used for balancing cranks back in the day. I needed to use it for truing some wheels for a friend. Typically I will true up a set of wheels if I have the axle, vise, and any aerosol spray can with a straw. I have been lacing wheels since I was a kid from moto to bmx. But since I didnt have the axle I swooped up our stand. Come to find out it had no spacers for the stand! So I turned some down on the lathe out of a chunk of stainless I had laying around. Machining really functional shit is cool.
