Cool. Thank you for the replies.
The bottom bracket tools are calling out to me since most of the LBS's look at me like I am an alien when I ask them about chasing the bottom bracket threads, or rethreading a French BB to an Italian. I bought the pedal thread bushing taps and am pleased with the cranks I have saved. Hozan Spoke roller is likely the next tool purchase.
Which dropout alignment tools do you recommend? That may be a sensible purchase as well.
I think the tool purchases most likely to happen are the ones that can be used for more than just frame building.
I do a lot of automotive fabrication, so building the frame jig looks doable.
I will likely build a frame. I am intrigued with the idea. The stars and planets will just have to align, and I will start building. Or it will be a Tandem or recumbent build of some sort.
It has been so many years since I have ridden a proper steel road bike that I must do so that before I commit to building one. I am in the parts gathering phase of assembling one now.
Park FFG-2 is what I've got. Does the trick.
