It's a good idea to give your location. Nearer is better.

They are RARE Eddy... and notoriously weak...

Weak? They are the same design as 1962-64 wheels less the nubs.
I've never seen or heard of any 1960-61 wheel failure or weakness.

Seems to be an unsubstantiated claim to me.

That's what has been reported here many times... and I don't think the rims have the safety bead for Tubeless?

I've never seen a broken EM wheel. They all are for tubeless tires. The early FC wheels don't have the bead but I've never heard of any issues running them tubeless.
