I rigged up this little gadget to help me make the wheel round and to dish the wheel. It mounts on the chain stays. I can slide it close to the rim to get the wheel round, and then use the measurments to help me true. I stick my thumbs on each side of the rim to help me feel exactly where the rim needs adjustment.
After I trued the wheel I actually remembered to put the rim tape on. I've forgotten to do that before and ended up with a flat.
Here's a squirrel's eye view of the hub that the fixed gear goes on. Getting a little closer to getting this baby ready to ride. I still need to take the brakes off and clean them off, take out the bottom bracket, and stem and clean and re-grease.
