Experienced builders, how much filler rod?
Hello experienced builders out there,
I am in the process of gearing up for some hobby framebuilding. Frame #2 & #3
My questions are:
1.What would be the estimated ounces of silver used in one fully lugged silver brazed frame and fork, assuming brass brazed front and rear dropouts?
2.How many frames will a 1lb jar of silver flux handle?
3.What would be the amount of brass used in a fully fillet brazed frame? (I plan on using 1/16 for tacks and 3/32 for fillets)
4. How many frames will a 1lb of brass flux handle?
I've built one Silver brazed lugged frame so far, under the tutelage of Ron Stuphin at UBI, where materials were included so I wasn't keeping tabs on how much was used. Silver is spendy stuff so i's like to get a ballpark figure for a Fred Parr order.
Thanks for your help,
PS e-richie, I'll send you a link to a blog when i start building.
