Not sure if you saw the one user review listed: "THIS ITEM IS NOT VERY STURDY NOR IS IT ACCCURATE. I TRIED IT BUT ENDED UP USING A STEEL TAPE MEASURE INSTEAD...."Has anyone used this tool for figuring out the toe settings?
I'm hoping to try out my reverse engineered Smart Strings(tm) sometime this season. :angel:
I still need to make myself one of the Dreamstick accessories.

I've used a set of trammel points from Lee Valley, a 2x4 and a tape measure to do it in the past.
I got one of those digital angle of the dangle finders last year (very handy tool for this work).I just did this myself! I will try to remember to take picks of my homemade Dreamstick. Honestly, if you can get the string close enough to the rim I would just use a small steel ruler with 32nds degreeing for accuracy. Use fishing line or fine string for most accuracy. I just used contractor string on my jack stands and it was too thick.
Moreover, I bought a Smart Tool from Craftsman online to make my own camber/caster gauge. Another reverse engineer project.
I would actually like to discuss how you are going to set up your jack stands and strings if you want to talk. I got pretty darn close the way I did it. It's all in the initial setup. I want to try MFE's way next time.
