    Nice to know! Even if I can't find out the builder nice to think it's a decent frame and know where it's from. Unrelated but the 600ax project of yours is fantastic.

    I'll have a crack at following the diagrams in @jontea 's link, otherwise this isn't a bad idea. Had initially thought a step down ferrule but I'm not sure it would sit at all flush.

    This is a great link, it took a fair deal of force to have the brake cable enter so could well be meant to work like that. I'll give the entries a little clean and give it a crack with some spare cable tomorrow. Would certainly be an easy fix if this is the case.

    Thanks, I think this is the right approach. I reckon theres a thin amount of rust at both entries but otherwise the outer should run the whole way through. Getting a drill out is a bit beyond my current DIY but also the answer.

    Okay interested to hear peoples thoughts re brake cable. I removed everything and shined a torch down the tubing but couldn't see much at all. An attempt with a vacuum as suggested by @billygoat8 but no change. Interestingly I tried running a gear cable down there to see if it was blocked and it ran through fine. I think the casing is 4mm as oppose to 5mm for the brake cable. I presume this rules out internal stops unless they are a ring around the circumference of the tube. As tried before I can get a brake cable in more like an inch and a half before it stops. Any thoughts?

    I'll have a check with a torch tomorrow, but it sounds like internal stops are likely as it goes.
