Tom, I do that on a regular basis. The thing to look out for is that the tiny 1- 2mm chips can get lodged in the cutting and flipping mechanism. After each cut use the next spoke to flick out the chip before cutting. Time consuming , but it save the machine from getting damaged. Robert St.Cyr ASUCD Bike Barn Davis, Ca.

   maybe I'm wrong. That sure would be great, because I have a small pile of "vintage" DTs that are just not quite right for some wheels I might want to
   build. A mm here and 2 mm there and I might be in business. > > > -------- -------------------------> Never miss a thing. Make Yahoo your homepage.> >
