When the time comes to set-up the rear drop outs and tack weld the drop outs it is handy to use this jig.
It saves multiple measuring and checking/rechecking measurements.
Once it is fitted, it will hold the wheel in a central position, letting you concentrate on positioning of the drop outs.
(I do like my jigs).

It's not too obvious from the picture, but the "legs" are tapered to suit the approximate position of the rim within the forks.
The taper is from 16.5mm to 18.5mm
The inside dimension has been chosen to suit the rim, 27mm in my case.

Fitted to wheel, about to be used:-

The file is up on Thingiverse if anyone is wanting to try it.
But do be aware, the dimensions are suited to my build and parts used.
Sketchup 2017 file is included in case modification is required.

Doesn't it depend if the wheel you are using is:
a) True.
b) Dished.
