Yea I do. It's the Feedback Sports single arm stand. Works well but I think I should have just ponied up for the Park so I could bolt it to the workbench. I use a through axle adapter from Abbey Bike Works which is awesome because it'll handle 12, 15 and 20mm hubs. I've got a dishing tool to measure the dish but you could make one pretty easily.

I've got to rebuild my road wheels here soon. The nipples are pretty corroded from all the years of being near the ocean and the rims have taken a beating. I'll let you know when I do and you're more than happy to swing by and try lacing them. I'm not a speed demon by any means in the build process. Usually takes me a couple hours per wheel.
