Add 1mm per twist. Build the wheel loosely like normal, then go back and twist two spokes at a time. It’s time consuming, and a little rough on the fingers, but surprisingly simple. They tension up and tru normally.

It looks like I have another set to do (way down the waiting list). I’ll take better detailed pictures of the process.

Can locals cut the line on the waiting list? Lol.

Re: Charlie Brown's Restorations

Got the axle back in today. Turned out sweet. 3/8” X 26t die nuts are hard to find. I’m glad I invested in one a couple weeks back.
