Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

Check out the Problem Solvers Holy Driver if that is your approach. You are supposed to be able to do that with a small drill, to speed up wheel building. I just use a cheap screwdriver ground to fit in the spoke holes, and basically do that.

It will give you a starting point, but since spokes come in lengths several mm different between sizes, and you have to remember to correct for dish, I wouldn't raise a high tension with the initial few rounds of spoke tightening.
