Just make sure your hub "off set" is correct.. or close

When it's centered between the forks the offset is correct.

Just make sure that the fork is securely held so there is no motion at the neck. You will likely need to have your brake plate installed if it is a drum brake, as well as any axle spacers. Either remove or completely back off the brake shoes to eliminate drag. If it is a disc brake bike, then make sure the caliper is not engaging the rotor.

I have one and have used it to build several wheels. Never had any problems. You just have to make sure that the cones are pushed tight before you lock them down.

And the moment you lock them down they're thrown off center? I'll save my $40

Why would it be off center? Are you actually trying to center the hub/wheel in the stand? You just mount the hub/wheel, and clamp a wire pointer on, and that is where you set to center. I will still keep using mine, and enjoy having the extra $30.00 the other one cost in my pocket.
