This is SO good.
Flicking through my '94 Specialized catalogue I see they were making carbon road frames with pretty small aluminium lugs. Looking at pictures they look basically the same size as standard steel lugs too. So, you know, you're in good company. Look up 1994 Spesh Epic comp and Epic pro.
Agree with everyone on masking up your face for carbon cutting, nasty stuff. Worked at a sailmakers for a while and we were cutting carbon battens all the time for $$$ race sails. We just used standard hacksaws, working slower with hand instead of power tools might give you a better chance of not shredding carbon all over the place (killer splinters too btw, itch like crazy)
Can't wait to see Frankenstein's carbon whip rise up.
