    IIRC it's Paterek.

    I have Glenn's, Sutherland's, Bradt's, Kolin & de la Rosa's, & Talbot's, but not Paterek's.

    I learned while using the Talbot Book around 1984, I hear great things about the Paterek book, But IMO a few hours on Google will net you more information about frame building on the beginner level that you can possibly absorb. Most of the guys who I admired then (Moulton, Sachs, Gordon etc) I had no access to in 1984. Today all of these guys have websites. They talk about their philosophies and techniques on web forums and email lists. Richard Sachs has an extensive website gallery of his work and the techniques he uses.

    Of course no book or website can replace having a torch, a file and some tubing in front of you to practice on

    For a truly educational sequence of pictures showing the steps in building a fillet brazed chrome-moly steel frame, see Tony Pereira's Fickr slide show HERE. The build took about 25 hours including lunch breaks.

    His website is HERE.
