As a practicing mechanic I enjoyed this course and gained more knowledge and experience than I had. My skills went to a whole new level.
Spoke Cutting and Threading
Winterborne Bicycles owns a Phil Wood spoke cutting machine. This tool allows us to preform spoke cutting and threading operations. The machine is extremely accurate, and allows precise spoke length cutting to within a millimeter. The 56TPI thread that is produced is an extremely precise high quality rolled thread. We only use high quality stainless steel spokes, which are available in a straight gauge 2.0 diameter. In post production we clean all cutting fluids from the freshly cut spoke, and supply a DT Swiss brass spoke nipple, and DT Swiss spoke head washer. The charge for this service is $1.75 per spoke, with a minimum charge of $15. If we are supplying you with a spokes for a wheel build we will also include the spoke length calculations within this cost.
