Default hd axle build

any body ever work with the hd axle kit from piston bikes? I am try to build the wheel myself and aside from learning the spoke patterns, i'm having trouble with the "dish" of the rim because of the hub size. come to find out that a radial pattern on one side and a single cross pattern on the other works well for the dish problem but, then the spokes are 3-5mm to long? can't find 10 ga spokes the right length? anybody have a spoke thread roller? or know where to get one ? the gague of the spoke seem's a little big for the average bike shop and to small for the motorcycle shop? wheelsmith and a few others make bike wheels with spokes that guage but no luck with tooling as yet.
this forum is a great plase to find advice ,so thanks in advance The "prussian"
