    Park ts-2.2 base

    I have been using a Spin Doctor truing stand for several years mainly for minor wheel truing and disc rotor truing (with a zip tie). Today, I found a Park TS 2.2 on sale for $185 shipped and have decided to upgrade. My question is whether the tilting base is worth the extra money or should I just mount it to a wooden base and save the 30 bucks?

    I went the wooden base route. looks nicer IMO. doesn't have the trays and doesn't tilt but I haven't felt like I'm missing anything.

    Personally I do like having the tilting base. I found it helps me get a good viewing angle for truing and checking roundness of a wheel.

    i have the tilt base but don't use the tilt feature. wood base is fine if on the cheap. you can screw down your own trays if you need em

    Thanks for the replies, all good advice. I think I'll start with the wood base and see how it goes. I can always get the tilting base in the future.
