Fillet Brazing

Has anyone done a step-by-step or how-to of Fillet brazing a frame? The Mixte and lugged stickies are great. After seeing Wolfhound Cycles, i would love a frame that smooth and good-looking, it'd be even better if I built it myself.

Tim Paterek has a set of DVDs with step-by-step instructions on fillet brazing bicycle frames. It's called Luggless Framebuilding. You can order on-line from Tim's website:

I bought the lugged framebuilding DVD set, and it was like having an expert mentor take me by the hand and lead me step-by-step through the framebuilding process.

I'm about to build a fillet brazed frame or two. I'll see if I can remember to take pictures.
