I've always had a passion for bike frames and I have a long history of metal work and fabrication. I *thought* I knew what I was doing BEFORE I did research on bike frames and particularly lugged frames. I think I can still pull it off and make the best of this but here you have it, I'm opening myself up to ridicule, laughter, insults, all the rest.
I'm the last person to brag on myself, but I can really stack some dimes with my welder. Brazing is definitely something I need a LOT more practice with and I must move to silver solder.
