• Mounting my grinder to the wall was a great idea.  It’s always ready to go and I can really lay into it if I need to.
  • I bought a TIG welder and I’m working on my chops so I can start welding bikes soon.  It takes more time to prep all of these welds than it takes to weld them, but it’s a lot of fun and I’m getting better really fast.
  • Tapping holes for a new jig piece.  Doing this by hand is very tedious.  I was spoiled when I built my fork jig and tapped holes with Versatapper.  100% worth the money if you do much of this work.  But I don’t do much of this work, so I never bought one of my own.
  • I’m making modifications to my front triangle jig which means lots of time spent milling aluminum.  The improvements will make set up faster and more efficient and the jig should hold the frame far more rigidly now.

I’m Jazzed about this photo of me with my hair doing a funny thing.
  • Teardrop fork blades on a 1” threaded fork and a fillet brazed fixed gear frame.
  • The seat cluster on Greg’s fixie.  This is my first time attaching seat stays like this and I really like it.They’re called fastback seat stays FYI.
  • Greg’s bottom bracket, fillet brazed.
  • Rear dropouts on Greg’s Fixie.  Including an integrated bottle opener.
