Frame Brazing

Here's the parts for Henrik' frame. I did a little fancy cutting, but nothing too crazy. I have to be careful because the inspector is always watching and checking out my work. She won't let anything slip by and she's constantly busting my chops.

The fixture set up and ready to tack.
Now the for cool green flame. Lisa took a huge pile of pictures last night of me brazing the first frame. For a rookie, she did a really nice job!
Here I'm just cleaning up my lug lines on the bottom bracket.
A little more on the bb shell.
A nice one of the head lugs with the flame wrapping around.
Well, that's all for now, I'll have more of the frame once I do some finishing later today or tomorrow.

Brazing for the first time is pretty difficult and should be done very carefully. I know how difficult it can be for an amateur, when I tried it for the very first time it was difficult. I kept messing up my projects so I now always hire a professional to do it for me. I do not take the risk of doing the brazing mainly because of all the money I’ve wasted. I’m comfortable working with S-bond as they have always fulfilled all my brazing and metal bonding needs.
