Inspirational thread. Proper emotional tingles. It’s fantastic reading about people doing great things to make others happy.
I had such a warm satisfied feeling rolling out of the workshop yesterday
Subbed. Lovely idea. Looking forward to the final pics.
I notice you’ve tacked the entire frame then gone back over doing the fillets. Would you say that was a better way to work than completing each joint as you go? Does tacking the whole thing really require the use of a jig?
Great project and a lovely story. I can only imagine how it's going to feel to see someone so close to you riding one of your frames. Awesome stuff.
Erm yeah, don’t see any other way tbh...tack in the jig, check alignment, braze. Jig is absolutely necessary for making sure everything is where it’s supposed to be but can’t imagine laying down the fillets in the jig so has to be done after.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
