Thanks and so far it seems people are enjoying it.

I'm building it up in the next day or so, so I'll probably
have the classic white garage door shots up on Monday at the latest.

Ok, I'm taking notes for when I have my custom frame built, you've just created pretty much my ideal ride. Just enough stainless, perfect color, geometry, and it's even my size!

About 100 miles accumulated over two morning rides.

Thanks for you're interest, good questions and kind words.

Make that 2, and I'm not even picky about the color.

These are actually two very different types of welding.

When using a paste flux in this type of welding, the paste is applied to both sides of the metal to be joined (think of sweat soldering copper water pipes) the filler material is wicked into the weld joint thru capillary action. This is why when you look at the pictures of the welded joints you only see a very thin line of the filler material.

When you use a inline fluxer, the only area cleaned by the flux is the area contacted by the flame. This allows for a very precise weld bead. It looks like a tig weld. This would be inappropriate for welding a lugged frame. If you want to weld a fillet welded frame, a inline fluxer would work great.
