Bicycle Project 2, day 3

Practice day and introduction to silver brazing. First there’s the prep work. Scrap tubing and practice lugs...

Mitering by hand

Not too bad

Yeah I'm pretty happy for a first-timer

Tube & lug surfaces prepared and fitted

Safety discussion then hello Mr Oxyacetylene Torch (um watch where you point that thing...)

After brazing

Flux removed

After sandblasting

Also prepared and polished the front and rear stainless dropouts but more on that later.
