Front derailleur mounting question

Looked a bit but didn't see anything on this, so here goes.

With Dura Ace front derailleurs that are clamp mounted can you remove the clamp and mount them to a brazed on mount or are they only clamp mount?

They are clamp-on only. The clamp is part of the main body and can't be removed. You can buy adapter clamps in various diameters that allow you to fit a braze on derailleur but a clamp-on derailleur is just that.
