It's odd to me that "truthing" should have been used in the engineering/mechanical sense of "making true" when "to true" is/was adequate(/available). (Perhaps "to true" developed later, and I am simply too lazy to check the OED at this time -- ?)

And FWIW, the bolus of truthing/truthiness/truther is quite interesting, seeing as how they have quite different connotative takes on the base meaning of "true," holy cow.

PS Thanks for the Nancy Sinatra video!
