3rd day On Doug Fattic’s Frame Building Course

Here are some pictures from my 3rd day with Doug Fattic.

Herbie Helm tacks a seat tube into a bottom bracket shell after ensuring the tube is exactly level with the flat surface.

Doug watched Bill silver braze his fork crown onto the 1" threaded steerer.

Doug cleans the "shoreline" of the bottom bracket shell with the flame.

Here I have filed all the excess silver braze material and the protruding amount of steerer so that it's flush with the underside of the fork crown. The crown tips are still as they were cast and not crisp and sharp though.

Mitering a tube by hand with a file.

Another good old English vice..

tubing, lugs & braze-ons.

The deer say hello after our class.
