No relation to the Judy Nipple, this sucker is a wheel builders delight.

Every dropped a nipple into a deep-V rim? Ever used an old spoke to insert the nipples into a deep-V to avoid dropping the nipple into the rim? Ever punch yourself in the side of the head building up a deep-V rim? Then this is the tool for you.

Spring loaded threaded nipple setter, allows for the nipples to be easily installed into deep-V rims, and then twisted to screw on to the waiting spoke, and then spring released for the spoke to take its place.

For most normal cross section rims, a Speed Wrench still works best, but I can build deep-V wheels with this tool super easy. More Vogel Genius!

Picture shows wrench with nipple threaded on, ready for action.

Push the spring loaded knob at the end of the wrench to extend the threaded shaft for the nipple to free the slotted detent on the backside of the nipple from the wrench.

Release the spring loaded knob and the threaded nipple shaft retracts into the wrench, leaving an unkeyed driver to use for snugging up the nipple for the final tensioning and truing to be done with a spoke wrench and a stand. Done!

Questions? Comments?

That about does it for my X-IT Designs tour down memory lane. Enjoy!
