How To Build a JIGYou might be asking where to get the cones and price? As far as aluminum cone off my own machine it’s something that if you must have a machine shop make it possible tad expensive (I think $ 100 – $ 125 for both crank and set the headtube, a piece of aluminum to build them out of the $ 40 to itself.)
I think in this case I can build and ship them if someone wants a set. Or if you are a local where to come to a “Bike Night” and we can build them. You will only need to bring their own materials. (I tried to set aside Tuesday and Thursday night to help fellow bikers with projects there, let them use the store)

They do not have to Aluminum. You can make them out of hard wood, and turn them on a drill press. (using a piece of yarn for all Mandrel and wood lathe chisels or had a course file)

You really do not even have a frame jig look beautiful. Its all about holding those things where you want them and the good relations with other parts I’ve seen some really cool stuff built with “plywood” dance in which all this mess only for a piece of plywood attached to the table to remain flat and use the tube spacer to get centered. Actually I have seen some great things built without a jig at all ..

Side of the argument is that if you put some thought and energy into a good jig was made better for all bike build for the future. The “tactics and straighten out” method of getting real old seven or eight times your tactics and find something that is not straight or where you want (or a draw from the heat of welding). This also makes it more fun to me and easier to see what you are doing and make changes as you go.
