    I wanted rule out guesstimate from my wheel trueing excercise. It was just in time since I had a wrech two days later, and had to fix my wheel. It wasn't my plan, though...

    learning curve

    Comments about Park Tool TM-1 Spoke Tension Meter:

    there is a learning curve, not just with building wheels, but with using this tool. if you release the deflecting spring onto the spoke differently, you can get wildly different readings. consistently releasing the spring requires practice and constant focus because it's slightly awkward to use, combined with the fact that the wheel is in the truing stand and wants to roll. lots of variables.

        Had a chain break bend all spokes and break one. With tool was able to remove one spoke at a time on opposite sides of wheel and then retension until all spokes were replaced. Tested undamaged spokes before and after as well as wheel run out and dish. All within 0.1mm as measured with caliper.

            No more guessing spoke tension. Use the chart supplied with the tool or look up the specifics of your wheel. Great tool!

              I've built wheels for decades & never had any issues with my wheels. Bought this for a high end Vintage Tubular build.SuperChampion 'Record du Monde' rims. Very light & easy to over tension. Could not believe how uneven tensions could be though I 'thought' they were close. Wow!! This thing allows you to put the tensions close to the rims limit, which is what makes a strong SAFE wheel.

              Great Addition for Home Mechanic

              Comments about Park Tool TM-1 Spoke Tension Meter:

              Building a wheel just once every three years, instead of once a week like I used to, it's good to have a consistent point of reference. That's what this meter does, and does well.

              Given the cost of replacement hubs, rims and spokes -- and the benefit from getting spoke tension right "the first time" -- the Park Tool Spoke Tension Meter is a big asset at a small cost for the serious home mechanic.

              Strongly endorsed.

                Comments about Park Tool TM-1 Spoke Tension Meter:

                I got this tool to help fix some old rims i have for a back up rims. The instruction are clear and perfecet. to belive it or not this is my first bike tool ever really. I normally use my nomal snap on tools for bikes. I can say witout a turing stand and just eyeing the rim and setting my spoke tension these old rims are now straighter than my zero lite rims. I am gonna work on those next. I ride a lot and got tired of buying new rims all the time so i decide to try this out and what did i know it worked so good im gonna get a truing stand and stop using my zip tie and brake pad method. will put this to work a lot i ride an average of 156 miles a week all year so this i a must if you ride like i do. It made of aluminum the hanldes a plastic but fit pefrect for my hands i was hopping it was good for the money and it is. I use to go though 3 set of rims a year but with this maybe just the one set till it wear out now when ever that happens.

                  Comments about Park Tool TM-1 Spoke Tension Meter:

                  Like most Park tools, this one requires a substantial investment to own. Fortunately, it's worth every penny, and you really can't set the correct tension in your wheels without it. If you want to true your own wheels or even just eliminate that annoying clicking spoke, you won't be disappointed in this product.
