I'm about to embark on frame number two. I like to buy a subset of tools for each project I undertake; for frame one, I bought myself a set of good files. For this frame, I'm going to buy a set of frame blocks.
I remember someone posting a link to a guy who sells tubing block sets made out of wood on eBay. If I remember correctly, it was a set that included 25.4, 28.6, and 31.8, plus it had a tapered block that would work well for stays. A search of ebay turned up nothing...does anyone know who I'm talking about?
Failing that, I'll pick up a set of BR blocks off of bicycletool.com I'm also going to try to fake a lug vise by trying to find an old 1 1/8" quill stem and an old 1 1/4" quill stem.
