Built this wheel jig to true the front wheels I built for the warrior, The dial indicator is on a swivel and I used it for lateral and radial trueness.I have since added another dial indicator and it makes it much easier to true both. I made an axle for the jig to suit the bitex hubs. As you can see the jig is just a pair of front forks but work perfectly. I put a wheel on the end of the indicator and an "o" ring over the wheel to stop the indicator jumping as it went over the seems. Hope this might be of some help to wheelbuilders.
