The world’s most popular wheel truing stand and the standard of the industry for 35 years is now, more than ever, the stand to choose for daily shop use. The new TS-2.2 combines time-tested functions from the legendary TS-2 with new features to make it more accurate and versatile than ever.
Park Tool Professional Wheel Truing Stand - TS2.2 Features:
Rated 1 out of 5 by poida poor QC, common issue with incorrect factory calibration
Was received with the caliper bolt all rusted out, other parts of the truing stand appear to be slightly rusted as well. Given the significant cost of the stand one would imagine that it would go through an extensive quality assurance/control process.
The stand received was definitely not factory calibrated. The calipers were about 5mm off when checked with a correctly dished front & rear wheel. i also had to adjust the bolt that controls the tension on the caliper arm - one was too tight which did not allow the spring to work correctly to make the left arm reset to the bolt position (when adjusting wide to narrow). Due to the bolt position against the two springs, the two caliper arm tips with not in line, about 3mm off.
Overall really badly calibrated. It would be good if they at least included a calibration tool (like that metal park tool version to align for correct dish - but instead made out of hard plastic, should not cost more than $10 for them to make).
Perhaps it's a bad batch of stands? Not sure. My stand had a build/'calibrated' sticker date of 23/7/2013. Seems like others had issues with rust and bad factory calibration...

When I first received this it was not aligned correctly (off centre by +5mm) and and took a while to get the callipers centred to the hub, but now that it is correct it is great, very solid too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Duncan16V Lovely piece of kit but expensive
The TS2.2 truing is solidly made and will save me its purchase price in 6 or so wheel truings. It's a shame that Park Tools don't include the alignment gauge in the price, particularly as the stand has left Park Tools factory poorly aligned (the callipers required centring before use) - which is disappointing given the price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Franz82 A sturdy and dependable truing stand
A really solid truing stand. The stand alone without the base weights in at around 9kg and is solidly constructed to last.
Just completed truing a newly build wheelset with no issues. Allows you to true a wheel both laterally and horizontally with ease.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous Poor QC
The bolt which adjusts the center of the protruding lever is rusted on both ends.
Stand should be factory calibrated but it is not centered. About 3mm off.
Quite disappointed that I have to make my own adjustments with signs of rust right out of the box.
Stand also goes out of balance when the protruding lever is adjusted till 700c potition. I put something in front to stop it from toppling over but it's poor design in my opinion.
Good, but can be better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Best jig for the money!!!
When I first bought this jig I didn't know how to true a wheel. After some search for info I began to true wheels and soon after I built my firs wheelset. It seems so long ago now. I love this truing stand and it makes a huge different when building wheels. My friend has the home mechanic version and the price difference doesn't justify the true difference.
