Process: Mitering

Mitering is a very important part of the build process and accurate mitering will ensure tight tube fit up which will minimize frame distortion during brazing. We use a Bridgeport milling machine to do all of our mitering and we have specific jigs for main tubes, chainstays, seat stays and bridges to ensure that cuts are made accurately. Importantly for us the quick set up of the jigs allows us to miter batches of tubesets quickly and efficiently.

Once the tubes are mitered the ends are cleaned and de-burred and then they are set up in the frame jig to ensure good fit up.
