    Disc brake mount jig?

    Is there a way to make a disc brake mount BRAZING jig? $125 is just too much for a one time operation. And I do not want to flame my spokes trying to do it with the wheel on.

    I was thinking of an armature on an axle... has any one made one?

    Find a junk wheel with the same brake and line it up. Line the wheel with sheet metal and use the original wheel. These are the only back yard ideas I can come up with.
    Totaly cheap wieght weenie. Totaly cheap bike snob. But I love Italian hand made stuff. 84' Ciocc, 85' Raleigh Super Course, 96' Sakae Litage, 2000 Lemond Maillot Jaune,

    Do you have access to a frame with disc mounts?
