    Default Not Another Build Photo Sequence on a HJ Jig

    Well sort of. I'm about half way through two frames (touring, filleted with a lot of braze ons) and have posted onto my Flicker site. I won't bore you with photos here but do ask that if any of you happen to check the album out and have a wish to see specific details please let me know. As I go through #2's build I'll shoot what details I get asked for.

    A side note is that my brain light build went off today during the set up for #2. I use a HJ universal jig and always had a challenge matching the head tube's top with the jig's top edge. As some of you might know there is no direct measurement design or connection between the top of the HT holder and the jig other then the holder's extension arm at it's bottom. I figured out a way to transfer the jig's top edge to the in place tubes. My solution is around shot #65.

    Many thanks, Andy.
    An easy way is that if your seat tube & head tube are cut to exact length, then your measurements from the front of the ST to the top lip & bottom lip of the HT should be spot on, thereby locating your head tube = you can also bang a measurement of the BB she'll to HT lip to be 100%
