Tommasini frame building video

- pretty interesting and fast moving. You see them build a lugged frame, and a welded one.

URL isn't taking, maybe because it's inside facebook. If you search facebook for "Sepeda Balap Jadul Indonesia" you'll find it. Sorry.

Certainly not shy about bringing the bb up to temp, 1:30 in, then removes it from the "mini-hearth" and uses the torch to flow the brass where it needs to go.

I learned that it's less about not getting the joint too hot as it is having an even temp across the joint. Al Eisentraut use to tell a story about visiting Italian frame shops and watching while entire head tubes and a few inches of TT and DT get bright orange hot during the brazing, using either multiple tips, one large rose bud or a hearth type of set up.
