    Somewhere (maybe here?) I saw a guy used a plumb bob- or, they always have them for motorcycle jigs on ebay.

    My shopmate got some of the ebay ones and they look pretty sweet. A bit big for bicycle tubing (2" OD, 3/4" ID), but they work fine, even for seattubes.

    Yeah, I saw those. I might try to hit up Home depot first and see what I can come up with (cheaper and I can pay cash).
    If not, that's probably the way to go. It will fit pretty easy to 8020 stock.
    Thanks

    You may try going to an auto parts store. I know Lisle makes a clutch alignment tool that comes with cones in it.

    I got some of those ebay cones. Definately worth the money if the design works with what you have.
