Frame Jig thread

Just wondering whether there is anything new on the frame jig front. We have the new Anvil design in production. There is the Bill Grove Jig that is in testing, but I haven't heard anything about regular people getting one.

Any news, prices, pics on cool stuff, factory or personal. This is the thread for it. Not a "do I need a jig" thread.

I'm about to start building my own version of the Arctos jig out of 8020...

IMPORTANT: image is of the Arctos jig, not the one I'll be building...hitting the 8020 garage sale on ebay for the parts as they come up.

If I could have afforded it, I'd have bought an Anvil Super Journeyman, but as a hobbyist the Bringheli works well for me. I bought the frame jig used and the fork jig from Joe.

(That's my fork jig, but I didn't make the fork that's mounted in it.)
