Wishbone rear triangle alignment.  Once the wishbone rear triangle (topstay tube brazed to the wishbone casting and the seatstay pair brazed to the casting) any heat distortion is checked and some gentle persuasion is applied to ensure that the tube centerlines are in plane.

I met Danielle Schon at the 2016 NAHBS who displayed a beautiful track bike.  Danielle gave me her sticker which I stuck on my Marchetti mitreing machine for good luck.

Donald's frame is back in the Marchetti fixture after the main diamond brazing is completed, flux soaked and roughly sandblasted and filed.  The photo shows a little clamp held on the centerline of the left rear dropout which supports a ruler which extends up to the back of the seat lug.  A machinists protractor is used to determine the topstay binder/cap mitre angle by measuring between the ruler and the seat tube.  Tomorrow the machine mitreing of the topstay cap and the rear wishbone brazing will be photographed and uploaded.

Gary McKenzie and I are working on a prototype brazed carbide tube mitre cutter with help from Prince & Izant.  So far the 4140 cutter blank is turned and the carbide rings are to hand so it won't be too long until the filler metal is formed for brazing the carbide to the blank.

Soon to be a brazed carbide tube mitre cutter.  Carbide ring has been positioned for the photo.  Given that the brazing is satisfactory for the cutter stresses, this little beauty should do a number on Reynolds air handening heat treated 853 material and it is hoped on the stainless 921 and 953 which has a hardness value of HRC 52 or so.

Prototype brazed carbide (top darker grey ring) tube mitre cutter.  Prince and Izant provided the brazing rod and black flux and I turned a preform ring and brazed up the composite.  The good news is that the carbide ring did not crack on either heating or cooling.  Now Gary McKenzie will grind in the teeth and the outside diameter and then the testing on some hard material will take place back in the Strawberry workshop.

One last mechanical turn on the brazed carbide mitre cutter.  The o.d. of the cutter body has been turned to match the carbide ring and the i.d. has been bored so all is ready for McKenzie Tool Grinding to apply their diamond grinding tools and spruce this to specification.
