I developed the first prototype wheel lacing jig around 6 years ago to improve the speed and accuracy of high volume wheel building in my own workshop, now there are over 350 jigs in workshops all over the world.
I needed to have the hub and rim fully supported so that I had both hands (and legs) free during the lacing stage of a wheel build to avoid dropping nipples and scratching components. Lacing on my lap was always a struggle - and bad for my back.
This tool helps to reduce build time and improve build quality. You can use the jig to check wheel dish even before you transfer to the truing stand. Fitting of custom decals is also a great added bonus as the 3 rim support arms are 120 degrees apart so great for helping place decals accurately.
Infinite tool free adjustment for ALL rim diameters
