How to build your wheel Truing Stand?
Here’s the process of building your DIY Wheel truing stand:
Creation of a basic frame:
You can construct your stand base using wood. You’ll need 2 pieces of 6 inches and 2 pieces of 24 inches long. Besides, you’ll require an additional wooden piece of 6 inches.
Fix the long pieces with the shorter ones using screws so that you create a 90-degree angle with the wooden pieces (one long one and one short one).
Place the fixated pieces such that the shorter ones will act as a base and the longer one will work as a stand. On the top of the long wooden pieces, carve an inner wedge in the center. So it can hold the wheel hub. Your basic frame is ready.

Put your wheel on the wedge and you’ll see the metal screws are in the right position to help you true your wheel.
With this easy procedure, you can create your truing stand with great ease and within your budget. So, try it today and get the most out of it.
