    All I can say is that the serrated lugs remind me of Columbine lugs. Not quite as ornate though.

    I'm reviving this old thread since I was faced with a similar issue. The plastic cap on the shifter indicated some SIS/friction toggle but it wasn't obvious how to change the mode. Seeing post #4 I...

    My first bender was that Imperial AS triple bender. Not strong enough for 3/8x0.035 cromo... It broke.

    I have the 300 series Ridgids. Pretty cheap on eBay and they do the job. I didn't know they were susceptible to breaking. Mine have help up fine on 0.035 wall cromo.

    I think the Meco can be used with both fuel gasses. The tips are slightly different but are basically compatible (the recess reduces the tendency of the propane flame to detach and keeps it closer to...

    Some factories did it I think. Not really a hearth, but the frame was fixtured on a jig that had multiple torches blasting each joint. Some preform was inserted to make an internal fillet. I think...

    True. With oxy, you can generate the same amount of heat with a much smaller tip. Heats a smaller area quickly and efficiently.

    And yes the hearth brazers used a HUGE flame from a 1" (or...

    I got started on a mapp torch. I made a bunch of racks and it works well for that. It'll work for braze-ons. And people make it work for frames too. I'm tempted to build a lugged brass frame using a...

    The oxy-map kits will work for a few braze-ons but you'll exhaust the oxygen quickly, meaning you'll have to buy more.

    If you really want to build frames, it'll cost... Unfortunately...

    I guess you are referring to the 0.6-0.4-0.5 seat tubes (the other round tubes have 0.7 butts as shown in post 8). I did use one on a recent lugged built. It think it's intended for TIG since the...

    Cutting the lug shape is already a lot of work, I would purchase the blanks. If you make your own you have to a) thin the 0.058 tubing on the lathe; b) mitre it; c) weld/braze; d) clean the...

    I don't think it's a good idea. Making a frame is a bit more involved than welding tubes together. And some welds are quite tricky (e.g. seatstay to seat tube). As you mention a welder will have no...

    Thanks for showing the pics. The ovalisation looks great. I'm curious to hear what happened with the butted tubing. Cool project.

    Yes as Andy says a 395 mm is about 30 mm too tall for the intended wheel. Your fork is intended for a 700c wheel and big tires. I would not use it for this build.

    I think brazed racks are cool. In some instances you can be smart about it and make them part of the structure. Like on the old Singer frame that used thinner fork blades because the brazed rack...

    It's hard to say really, I think everyone is speculating to some extend. I'm sure it would be ridable, but it might not be best for spirited riding and/or climbing hills, which also increases wheel...
