If you are anywhere near Cambridgeshire you are welcome to borrow them

Cheers

hi rich, that is really generous of you mate but unfortunately i brought some earlier as it seemed like a good price at just over £50 for stand and dishing tool inc post. its something i have always wanted to do having given fivers and tenners to bike shops for a not always very good truing job so figure they will pay for themselves pretty soon. thanks anyway mate that really is very generous of you. ad

Glad you are sorted Ad, enjoy the truing and make sure you work out which way to tighten/loosen the nipples

Not always the way you would expect
