    Jiggernaught frame jig - anyone try it?

    Hello all,

    I've always wanted to build a frame and found this low-cost jig that can be ordered and then assembled. Has anyone used it before, and what's your feedback? I like the idea of purchasing something that just needs to be assembled...

    I have to say that the only advantage to that thing is the fact that you can buy it and put it together. I don't like the design and I don't think the people that sell it had enough experience making bikes before they put it on kickstarter. I'm sure they did well with it because a lot of people want to build a bike some day.

    It's about the same money as it takes to build a fixture out of 80/20 aluminum strut (I would actually go with Misumi). And the aluminum strut will work better and still be worth something if you decide not to pursue framebuilding. There are a batch of threads about this thing out on the web, I think there is one here too.

    actually, there were two threads here about it.

    Don't think anyone here will admit to having one, could be wrong

    Thread 1
    Thread 2

    Thread 1 is more complete
