If you bought spokes here but need shorter ones, I can help depending on the situation. I can cut them shorter and roll new threads so you end up with the length(s) you need. Maybe you realize your hub/rim dimensions were wrong, calculated incorrectly, abandon a project and start another, etc. The catch is you need to identify the issue before using them. Once spokes have been laced into the wheel, even without tension, the spoke cutting machine is liable to reject them. Send me an email with the details and we’ll go from there. I do this a few times a year but it’s not meant to be a secret handshake kind of thing.

Here’s a teaser of the science fiction truing stand I built recently. In January I broke my leg resulting in unplanned downtime. I came up with this. The video is just a teaser — I plan to make longer one that demonstrates all the features and shows its integration with the wheelbuilding process.
