So while people are out hacking-and-slashing their way through Wal-Mart and the like, I’ll be in the car on the way to Princeton, to build. Kate and I have a plan to do all our Xmas shopping via Amazon this year, and I wholeheartedly support that notion.
So my to-do list for today at the workshop:
- remove head tube twist from Paul’s frame, and ensure everything is on centerline
- miter and braze in Paul’s top tube
- build fillets on Justin’s head tube/down tube combo, and seat tube/bottom bracket combo
- miter and join the subassemblies for Justin’s frame
- remove head tube twist from Justin’s frame, and ensure everything is on centerline
- Time dependent:
- miter and tack-in Justin’s top tube
- miter downtube and braze to head tube of pursuit frame
That last item is going to be a toughie because I’ll be dealing with an airfoil-shaped downtube, and don’t have the ability to run off a mitering template on the printer. I’ve got to go back to old-school, time-consuming methods which is going to be difficult, as I have nothing that will easily hold an aero tube in a vise. Gonna require some enthinkification.
