Stainless lugged frame

Here's the stainless lugs tacked up and ready to remove from the fixture.

I kinda rigged up the fixture with the bar off my alignment plate. This way I can set the whole frame up at once and be done. Talked to Don at Anvil, he said the new fixture should be shipping this week.

Lisa wasn't home when I brazed this one so I don't have any pictures with fire in them, but here's some from when the smoke cleared.
Pretty clean, not too much charred flux.

Seat lug.

The whole frame from the front. Didn't have the dropouts yet, so no chain stays.

Here we are after a quick soak in the bathtub. Yes honey I cleaned all the flux out!

Seat lug.

Finally, after some quality time with the file and emery.

The head tube, would look a little nicer if I had a sandblaster to knock down the flashing, but once it's polished and painted you'll never know.
