Should have addressed the issue of stainless steel spokes & plated nipples. I'm thinkiing I should be using an anti sieze compound on the threads. If so, a copper based anti seize or TFW teflon thread lubricant? Thank you.

Hi
I use Nickle based anti seize on my rebuilds, but I also check to make sure the nipples screw on easily first, yes every one, as some of the spokes/nipples are an interference fit, any that are tight I swoop around until they feel good.
