Default Wheel building

Hey

Can anyone point me in the direction of someone to build up some spoked wheels. Have all the parts needed.
And closer the midlands the better if at all possible.
Thanks

Not sure if they still do them, did some work for me over a decade ago. Can save yourself a few bob if you lace the wheel and have them true it.

Putting the wheel together is actually quite easy, the tricky part is the balancing, but if you take your time you can actually do it with a stand and a few straight edges.

Time and patient must be on point.

And I recon you must listen to the 'ding'. tap the spoke with a small spanner.
dng... tighten.. ding ..stop
diing diinggg ..is too much but backing off is harder as you've pulled the shape at this point.
That was my effort. Tape and a few cocktail sticks worked 100% then balanced at shop.
