Example text

If you want to follow along exactly, grab the axle and turn it counterclockwise so the initial spokes tighten right up. You may want a helper to turn the axle for you so you can free up both hands for the rest of the job. Also note that a spoke nipple may be caught outside the hole in the rim, so wiggle the axle or offending spoke(s) until they all drop in their holes and tighten up as you twist the axle. Now have a look at Figure 2-26 and trace the spoke indicated by the large arrow back to the hub flange.

The spoke indicated by the large circle is the neighbor to the left, and the rim holes between the two spokes are numbered from 1 to 6. The little arrow on the hub flange is pointing to the new crossing spoke and his neighbor to the left. If this does not make sense, then read it again and study the photo; your helper will just have to be patient! 26 effect on the wheel, so go ahead and turn the spoke nipples two full turns each as you work around the rim, starting at the valve hole. Do both sides at the same time, and keep working around the rim until you can no longer make two full turns on each nipple.

Too much is always better than too little! and try again. Perfection is not necessary, but obvious flaws should be repaired. I also recommend you tape up the spoke holes when welding to avoid spatter in the holes. If you are happy with the hub flange alignment, then add two more tack welds and recheck your work. With four solid tack welds, you can then weld the entire joint as shown in Figure 2-16, using a good solid bead all the way around. Don’t worry about beauty here—just fill in the area with solid weld metal, and it will be ground flush later.
