in the 70's I had learned the silver-solder drawing torch work in Jewelry and metalsmithing courses,
so I though Why not..? so I winged it..

I later (on a bike tour) met a guy in Nottingham, he built jigless frames ,

with a rack of half round files, & a bench vice with wooden tube gripping blocks.

for pro racers , and even prototypes for Raleigh..

(I still have my bike with the DIY frame and fork.)
