Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Excellent as a home truing and building stand
I build wheels using the park tool ts2 truing stand on a daily basis as part of my job. I Have the feedback sports work stand for events, and thought I would try out there truing stand for a cheaper alternative for home use. It is excellent. Its base is heavy, stable and designed well to hold spokes, nipples and nipple keys while you are building a wheel, and the when clamped in tight with a qr it holds the wheel pretty well. To hold through axle forks you will need to buy a truing stand adapter such as the new park one, or from ebay if you are looking a cheaper option. The adjusters on the gauges don't quite have a fine enough adjustment, making it more difficult than necessary to get the wheel ABSOLUTELY true, buy will be fine for getting the wheel down to being true well within 1mm anyway. Yes, the park tool professional stand is more of a pleasure to use, and is quicker for building wheels and quickly fine tuning, but as stand for the garage to do your own work it fits the bill perfectly.

I guess truing stands are expensive just because they don't sell many...
This one works fine, I give it 3/5 as I think the price is high for what it is and also they claim that you don't need a dishing tool, you just reverse the wheel. However, this doesn't always work, it seems for whatever reason that when you reverse the wheel it doesn't quite gauge the dish accurately.
No complaints from mine as it was £26 delivered from the US a while back. You can't get it at that price anywhere any more.
But even at full price it's cheaper than the Park!

I bought this stand on the strength of the other reviews, and I feel mislead and extremely disappointed on several fronts; 1. fitting wheel onto the stand is a challenge, using it as a dishing tool? near impossible. You end up smacking into the alignment marker turn the wheel around, seriously need a third hand to do it! That thing is definitely going to break. Also, due to the way quick release works, you need to adjust it every time you turn the wheel around, a very slow process. 2. Base only has one pad at front! rocks side to side substantially, had to prop it using cardboard, as i would to a table with a short leg I wouldnt buy this again, or recommend it to anyone, you are better off with a zip tie and your forks, and then you can "turn your wheel around to dish" and it would be way easier than this ridiculous stand.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous Simple sturdy design and thats good, for small scale use great! But you pay for what you get! Look at the position/location of the guides and compare to a more expensive truing stand, you strain yours eyes looking at those guides too much!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Good price for a good tool
Like Lee says, no need for dishing tool, sturdy and good value.
Only criticism would be the plastic parts that make up the guides. Hard to adjust, you have to squeeze the hard plastic on the sides and slide it up and down, and the plastic bits you turn to move the guides in and out are a bit wobbly.
Having said that I'd buy it again or stump up the extra 40 quid for the Pedros one. Park one was a bit rubbish for the money.
