    1950s Conloy ASP alloy rims - NIPPLE washers?

    Re: Having only been building wheels for 10 years, these were the first Conloys I'd come across. Four reasons I didn't consider washers under the modern zinc plated DT Swiss 1.8mm nipples (and DT Swiss 15/17g spokes) - a) the rims' extrusion seemed thicker than modern types b) the rim's...

    1950s Conloy ASP alloy rims - NIPPLE washers?

    Calling all older wheelbuilders :?: Following on from a previous thread where I built a pair of wheels using Conloy ASP alloy 26" x 1¼" rims, DT Swiss 15/17g S/S spokes and LF Airlite hubs for a friend - should I have used small oval washers under the nipples? Just seen THIS LISTING ON EBAY...

    Airlite hubs - to brass washer spoke heads or not?

    Just building up a pair of wheels using SF Airlite hubs, Conloy ASP rims and new stainless steel 15/17/15g (1.8/1.5/1.8mm) spokes. The aluminium flanges are somewhat thinner than modern hubs, being ~2.3mm thick as opposed to ~ 3.3mm. I've just laced the rear 40 hole and used brass spoke washers...

    26" x 1¼" rims Airlite SF hubs - WHICH SPOKES and NIPPLES?

    Re: Re: MADGETTS sell 15/17g stainless steel spokes and nipples :D And I've just ordered 74x 288mm - pretty close to your 11 3/8" Keith :D Oh and the rims aren't stainless steel either - they're aluminium and appear to be Conloy ASP Many thanks for all the advice :D

    26" x 1¼" rims Airlite SF hubs - WHICH SPOKES and NIPPLES?

    Re: Edited as just realised the rims are not chrome plated steel :roll: So possibly Dunlop “Stainless Special Lightweight”? They have heavily staggered/offset drillings.

    26" x 1¼" rims Airlite SF hubs - WHICH SPOKES and NIPPLES?

    A friend has asked me to build some wheels using EDIT: stainless steel? 26" x 1¼" rims (32/40) and small flange Airlite hubs. Which spokes and nipples to use? It appears these require 15/17g spokes and appropriate nipples. The rims' spoke drillings are too small for Sapim Polyax nipples and...
