Putting a rim on a Tidalforce X motor

Well, I took my partially assembled wheel with my precious X motor over to a local electric bike shop last week and they were not able to get it to true. It has been trued left to right, but can't be trued up or down. So it  is out of round right now. The tech says that the nipples don't have square shoulders any more and so it's getting difficult to work. I have my doubts. Before I name names and take the motor/wheel back, I'm going to give them one more shot to true it. Let's hope this happens soon. They are now saying they want to replace the nipples with new ones and it may take a while to get them. We shall see.

Hmmm, major disappointment.
