Lugs #3 and #4

Posted: December 2, 2011 in Lugged Bicycle Frame Construction

73 degrees

I did up lug number three and four and I think I’m starting to get the gist of things and can see what is going on and understand why now.  I did however go a little overboard on the amount of silver I used this time but I figure too much is better than too little as far as the strength of the joint is concerned.  I think I’m ready to tackle the real deal now so I’ll start mitering up the Columbus tubes and turn to.  I’ll keep you posted on progress.   Wish me luck.

Not too shabby for a noob - I think
