Due to lack of a mentor, I'm going to be practicing taking apart and reassembling parts of some brazed frames. After getting a feel for this, I would like to eventually try installing some new dropouts on a frame with damaged ones. I'm basically curious if you folks could help me make a bare-bones list of equipment for this simple work.
I understand the basic principles of brazing and un-brazing, but do not know what type of fuel to use to take apart bike frames, nor what type of tips/regulators I will need. I also don't know how much fuel it would take to affix a set of dropouts to a frame or separate a lug from tube.
Basically, exactly what kind of equipment am I going to need to start taking apart old, broken lugged frames?
