    Very much the sculptor carving away the marble to reveal the figure within.

    Also I am beyond taken with that socketed seat tube lug. Filing that away for future build reference...

    Thanks.
    The socket seat stay seat lug is not a new idea,or my idea, it has been done before for at least 30 years. I have used them 20 years ago with OS tube sizes and 14mm seat stays.
    My blend of those lugs from years ago with today's bigger tube sizes and what I desire for my own production here.

    My dropouts have the M5 eyelets cast in. For road bikes that do not need the eyelets one cuts them off. The shape and blend are filed in after the chainstays are brazed to the dropouts. It is too cosly for me to have new tools made for drops without eyelets so these drops can with or without eyelets via the hacksaw and 10 minutes with the file

    Those dropouts are good lookers indeed.
    You've inspired me to cut a set today.

    Work on the dropouts continues on a Monday



    Die grinder, files then the sanding begins



    120, 320, 800 and finally 1500 grit under balsa wood sticks. Sanding is the time consuming part of the process and it gives one plenty of time for contemplation about the world whilst listening to the radio




    Polishing takes a few minutes and reveals if the sanding is done correctly




    Wayne's fork blades are ready for the crown

    Lovely lathe file and still used just about every day. The steel was a good brew back then.

    Default Wayne's Llewellyn Lucentezza Cadenzia frame set

    Single point turning the crown race seat to 30.02mm is the only way to go with a stainless steel fork crown. Have I said lately that a lathe is " a beautiful thing" ?

    spot on for the crown race fit



    Careful filing of the surface is the first step. New and sharp file are a must for this.



    120 then 320 grit



    1500 grit under the balsa wood sticks. The sanding takes the time, if done well the polish will be quick and reveal the Lucentezza.
