    I would say Spomer is closer to the next Mike Rowe from Dirty Jobs.

    Cool wheels and great reveiw. I was shown the harmonic technique four years ago by a master mechanic who taught me wheel building. He said that before accurate tensiometers this was one of the best ways to evenly tension a wheel and he has been in the game a long time. I still use this technique today and find it to be quit accurate although I always double check with a tensiometer.
