Now that I have a cutter, I need to do some final prep on the fixturing.
You can see here that the bolt and nut are sticking up a little above the top of the head tube.
I need to cut as deep as possible to get through the frame tubes clean.
I milled off the stud and nut.
I sure hope this works.... Safety glasses on, this job might need a helmet...
Final program test before reloading and indicating again. I forgot to get some measurement off the frame that I would need for later, so I had to unclamp the frame, then refixture it. Once it's cut off, no turning back.
Nice and clean cut. Slow and steady worked out great, to my relief.
