Getting Ready for Wrapping

As pictured below, the frame now holds together as a unit, even out of the jig.

Therefore it's time for an alignment check, and it all looks good.  Here's a picture of the rear alignment test.

The height gauge is a nice antique Starrett that I picked up on e-bay for less than $50.  It has decimal inches on one side and mm/cm on the other.  Even came in a nice leather covered case:

All of this led to the largest task of the evening; marking joints and masking the rest of the frame.  It's the voice of experience talking when I say you should always mask the frame before wrapping joints.

Stay tuned....
