The TS-2 I have was purchased from the shop I was working in at the time and it's pretty good on it's own. Though I do double check with a dishing tool. It's not expensive and a quick and easy second check.
True slightly, as in less than 1/4 turn per nipple, to whatever side you prefer, then remove and flip the wheel 180 degrees. Repeat until done. You'll never be concerned with playing with the adjusting nuts again, or when you're finally done readjust your stand. My preference is to leave the stand the way they end up after a year, 2-3mm off to the left, and just flip the wheel. Always follow up with the gague to be absolutely sure if you're still learning. Usually I use the gague to be absolutely sure it's true, but rarely do it wrong.
remove one of the "truing arms"-the metal bit that rubs the rim,and flip the wheel to check dish. all the wheelsmith truing stands were like this(except the big cast var machine in the back).my right eye is dominant so i remove the left arm,works like a charm and dishes wheels perfectly
