Hello fellow BF'ers:
I am in the process of refurbishing my Jamis Aurora touring frame. It is made of Reynolds 520 (aka:4130) and it is TIG welded. I have been taking some JB weld to a couple of small dents in the TT, and the results came out better than expected.
One thing that always bothered me about TIG frames is that the weld spots are visible where the tubes meet. I was wondering if I could cover those weld spots by applying some JB weld and sanding it to a smooth finish.
My only concern is that there would be too much compressional/tensional stress being applied to the tube ends, and that it would crack the coating of JB weld.
I do not want to repaint this bike a second time if I can avoid it.
Does anyone know for sure if this is ok given that it is a TIG frame?
