Special Tools for proper wheel assembly

Sapim is not a tool manufacturer but it would like to support its customers by proposing a set of good tools to be used with its spokes and nipples. Therefore we have been trying nearly all different tools in the market and wanted to share with you the best we found.  The tools below are mostly made out of existing tools with some slightly different specification. Good tools and good wheel building belong together.
