Front triangle tacking question
I took a frame building course a little over a year ago and I am just now set up to do some building on my own. Not everything I have learned has stuck in my head so I have a question about taking up the front triangle.
(Using oxy-acetylene fillet brazing)
I tacked up the front triangle of a frame yesterday and before I did I thought, "hmmm maybe I should tack the st-bb joint and tin the front part that is going to be covered by the DT." so thats what I did. I thought that I should because I wouldn't be able to access that area later. The only problem is that it made my DT cope/miter not fit as well because of the brass and hardened flux. So I filed off the flux and got the joint looking pretty good but still not as nice as original and proceeded to finish tacking the frame.
My question is, How do you go about taking up this area? is it necessary to fill the front of the st-bb joint?
I should mention that this frame had a pretty large compound miter on the dt because the st is the true temper s-bend type.
