So the lil lug brazed up fine. Soaked it, cleaned it up.
The shorelines came out wonderful.
Time for the autopsy.
Brass mostly everywhere, verr nice.
Wow, it filled in the miter gaps even. I like that!
A bit of incomplete miter below, but since this was a quick n dirty experiment I didnt pay too much mind to the quality of my copes. That being said I have dissected production lugged bicycle frames that are much much much more terribly mitered, like the tubes barely even touch. And how many thousands of miles did those frames last and never broke?
I probably could have even gotten that gap completely filled if I added just a little more heat and filler to that crotch.
So....It works, I'm very happy with the result. But how laborious and complex do I want a rack to be? he he he...Buh-bye- I need to go make some lugs.
