I just used the cheapest Spin Doctor stand from Performance for my first wheel build and it worked fine. I'm a fan of tools and was tempted to go with the Park Tool Professional stand, but I couldn't justify spending twice what I spent on the stand + dish stick for only building a couple wheels a year.

Thanks guys for the advice. Will check out the e-book...that look's great and plus my father is handy with wood.
I have one of Roger's wheelstands, not made by me but supplied by him. He had some made by a cabinetmaker in the UK (where he lives) for wheelbuilding classes he once taught. In his e-book are the plans that were used.

Around the internet, various renditions of his original idea have shown up. This is the best one I ever saw. It was done in oak and tricked out. The original is shown on my webpage.

Do a Google Image search for "roger musson truing stand". Lotsa stuff there.
