Chances are they may not notice the difference, but I feel that it needs to be right since that's what said customer is paying for. That's my perfectionist side speaking.

    How do you measure that half degree difference once a frame is complete?

    I don't even build frames as a hobby, but I say to you: Stick with your belief and desire and continue the search for a method, whether personal or universal, to build frames to spec. .
    Only those who dared to try achieve great things. Edison made 1000 unsuccessful attempts to design a light bulb. And then...

    Peter if one desires to build frames (or anything for that matter) to spec, learning about working parameters is part of the whole. If the angle comes out to a .5 degree number difference than what’s desired, one compensates by building to another spec so the result is the desired one. Heat + metal + inexperience + ideals = a recipe for rethinking procedure.
