Dear Chalo,

Another truing stand design that's probably superior to anything with
a dial indicator:

you could try changing your diet? what's your century time these days?
you could Google Earth the Ozarks. Surely the Ozarks are on the road
to perdition.

Too much information often leads to bad decisions and poorer performance:

This book is full of classic failures for ignoring the obvious
solution in favor of a well researched but wrong one.

In the blink of an eye, you could see it was a fake!

Not a bad concept, but dial gauges are only good for checking things
at the end of the build... and even then they aren't very helpful
unless you just want to know what the number is.

I bought my dial gauge at a yardsale for 5 bucks and it was already
broken. Opened it up squirted some lube in it and it has worked
great now for a couple years . Bolted it to my $20 ebay truing stand
and Voila! (I dont let the monkey play with it though)
