this is for E-Gelle. thin, milky flux. gasflux blue, with a gasfluxer on "med/lo" and Aufhauser 680 brass-nickle rod. i get it here: www.brazing.com i use a victor torch with a #1 tip.
finished fillets. i can confidently say without bragging that it's pretty hard for me to see where i am gonna go from here as far as improvement. i have decided that i am going to offer a non-filed frame option. prices to be disclosed soon. taking orders for Sept/Oct 2010 currently. thanks, all!
pre-braze alignment check - bitchin'.
these stays kinda worked me!
the other day on MTBR frame building forum www.mtbr.com guys were saying that brass flux was not corrosive to steel. here is my side of the argument. that's oxidation from only <12hrs after brazing. put anti-corrosion goo in your frames, folks!!!!!! do it NOW. if you own a Coconino all the tubes should have vents into each tube so you can inject anti-corrosion fluid like Boeshield T-9, J.P. Wiegle Framesaver, Tri-Flo, or WD-40. your frame is an investment - no warranty on rust!
