    working out my first frame jig - a customized one - which addons and features to add?

    hello dear all,

    pretty new to this forum - so my name is sayhello and i live in Europe,


    working out my first frame jig - a customized one - which addons and features to add?


    i am currently workin on the Bicycle-Frame-Building-Jig that is designed by tanner W at Instructables https://www.instructables.com/id/Bic...-Building-Jig/

    which bottom bracket assemblies should i work out:


    The question is - which bottom bracket-assembly-types would you suggest!?which axles and dummy shells should i drill



    see https://www.instructables.com/id/Bic...-Building-Jig/

    well at the moment i am musing bout the extras

    - what should i add
    - which features should i add
    - eg some dummy axles for the bottom bracket assembly - what do you suggest!?


    i think as long as we can get a standard English bb in both 68 and 73,
    we should be fine.

    afaik: It's hard to deal with the press fit sizes because AFAIK nobody is selling facing/reaming tools for them. As far as i know: Paragon has a ton of bb shells available, so we could match what they sell.

    but I think the two most standard sizes will probably do for now.


    the tanner w fixture is adjustable for width, so we only need one set of blocks see here: https://www.instructables.com/id/Bic...-Building-Jig/

    and also see the bottom bracket shells: https://www.paragonmachineworks.com/...lls/steel.html

    well at the moment i am musing bout the extras

    - what should i add
    - which features should i add
    - eg some dummy axles for the bottom bracket assembly - what do you suggest!?



    btw in earlier times
    i have worked on these concepts:

    As I said in the other post, I'll have my new fixture posted in the next week. It will be a worthy reference and is explained in long form.
