I have a Park TS 8 which is basic but good and sturdy. What is needed to get it to true thru-the axle wheels? It seems the Park site ways use adaptors but only for the front wheel? Does not make sense should work for both?

Buy this or make something like it:

https://www.parktool.com/product/thr...-adaptor-ts-ta

Front or rear shouldn't matter specifically but some modern
very wide axle formats won't fit in older stands (see tech
note in page above) in which case get these:

Wow!!!! $60 and $55 for the two Park adaptors you linked. I know Park makes good tools. But when you get up into the area of tools costing several times what you are repairing, it makes you think a bit.

I talked with a customer this morning who stripped the head
of an aluminum torx nut, "What Tork drivers do you use?" We
use Snap On. He noted that they are expensive. Well, yes,
they are.

But now he's going to drive 110 miles each way and pay us to
solve the problem of his 'economy' tool.

If you use a truing stand all day long (our main unit is 50+
years old, purchased used, rebuilt a few times) money spent
on good tools is a cost saver. For home use, not so much.

BTW I do most truing 'in the bike'. I only occasionally
build wheels now (when employees are 'too good' for some
jobs and some customers). The result is the same. Although
a stand with good lighting can be more convenient it's not
essential.

I built my first wheel riding in a VW van during the long drive to the
airport for our first overseas bike tour. I used the inverted bike frame
as the truing stand.

Those were the days!

I built my first wheel in a Brooklyn park[1] over many hours
one sunny day many long years ago.

It fell apart riding to work Monday morning. I walked the
last mile or so.

Wow someone drives 110 miles (=116 km) to solve a small problem as a stripped torx head? I would have to drive to Amsterdam. How long did you take to solve that?
