In this article, we will tell you how to use the TS4 truing Stand. Bicycle wheels develop wobble over time and they need to be straightened out or trued.
The TS4 holds the wheel and acts as a gauge so you can make quick and accurate adjustments to the spoke tension in order to straighten the wheel.
The TS4 is the one Turing’s tan that can accommodate the widest range of hub and rim dimensions.
Simple and comfortable and easy to use the caliper items, precise movement up and down and allows for more efficient radial bicycle wheel truing. It has built-in adapters for through axle wheels.
It’s our most accurate and versatile chewings tan. Let’s walk to assembly. After we secured the base threads of the caliper knob and installed the knob.
At first Install, the trunnion into the caliper arm then greases the caliper knob threads, as well as the unthreaded end. Where we’ll contact the trunnion.
Install the caliper arm shaft through the bushing and into the trunnion thread in the shaft to lower the caliper arm.
Install the knob cap, screw and snug it up. Installed in our nylon tips, wheels are secured in place by tightening the main shaft knob.
Once the calipers are within the desired tolerance. Lateral truing is complete.
To check for radial errors, position, the caliper fingers, just below the top of the rim braking surface, spin the wheel to see where the rim contacts, the caliper fingers and make any radial corrections to the rim.
In this example, we need to make another adjustment to bring us to the center, continue to make adjustments, and recheck using the dishing tool until we are within the desired tolerances.
It can happen. Is that a perfectly centered wheel may not appear perfectly centered in the caliper of any truing stand.
This is because there are a lot of moving parts and a lot going on at the point where the wheel and the stand interface with each other.
Bicycle wheels bring their own set of issues.
Axles are may not be exactly concentric, worn axle threads can be especially problematic and four axles are using six-sided locknuts the faces of lockdowns are unlikely to be aligned left to right.
This can shift the wheel slightly in the stand-to-rim radius, then multiplies any anomaly at the hub, and that can affect the centering at the caliper fingers.
This is why the most accurate and precise method to Senator or rim is dishing tool such as the wag four or WAG five.
The T is for the truing stand is calibrated at the factory. They’ve adjusted to a set hub width and too tight tolerances and is possible stands may come out of alignment from rough handling and shipping or wear over time.
You may attempt to correct the issue, but only if the adjustment is truly necessary.
TS4 truing stand is really amazing and we have discussed details of this truing and here also we have discussed how you can use TS4 stand.
