Anyone? should I use an angle finder on the end of the spindle to find camber?

Angle finder with a straight edge on your wheels works good, 2 degree angle is a good all around point to start. No more than 1/4 inch toe in, no less than 0.

Here's a tip for setting up the front end. Make sure you have hard pack tires on (no paddles) air them ALL to 10 psi, exactly 10 psi or more, as long as they are all the same, this will make sure that the bike sits even all the way around. I used a cheap angle finder I bought at Harbor Freight, and I set the camber at one degree for each tire. Even at 10 PSI there will still be a slight bulge at the bottom of the tire where it contacts the ground, make sure you are not taking your angle off this bulge, move your straight edge to just in front of or behind the bulge. Hope this helps, I had a hard time getting my Alba front end set up until I knuckled up and did it this way. As far as toe goes, I think anywhere from 1/8 to 1/2 of an inch is typical, I set mine to 1/4". Good luck.
