Chain Stays Welded


Originally uploaded by anthony.maietta

The steady progression of A. Correal’s track frame continued last night. I cleaned up the dropout to chain stay transition on both stays and prepped them for welding. After double, triple, and quadroupole checking to make sure I was welding the chain stays to the right side of the BB I welded the suckers on. The welding went very smoothly and I was very pleased with the results. Welding the XCr stainless is like welding Spirit thin walled tubing. As long as the miters are tight there really isn’t an issue. The Anvil chain stay ficture once again gave really awesome miters, so I was good to go. Tonight I plan to cut the seat stays and weld those.
