uses may be few & far between but maybe it's worth having?

Wow. I'm guessing those don't pop up for sale too often.

Looks like the kind of item a repair shop should have--or better yet, a local ABC Airheads group might have on hand for any member who needs a frame check.

I would like to check one of my frames but I would be clueless what to do to adjust the frame even if it checks out tweaked.

Nice to see specialty parts popping up--and that seller claims to have quite a stash of them so he/she might well be worth watching.

I've been wondering lately if the frames are built symetrically.

Frames aren't usually used if they're bent, although I've seen individuals try to straighten twisted steering heads. The oval thin-walled tubing used doesn't seem to like being re-bent.IMHO, if your frame is suspected of being trash it probably is, and this jig just confirms it...
