I have one of the small Grizzly mills similar to what Andrew has. The HT was 90mm Paragon so that helped. I used a tube block on the TT near the HT and put it in the vice with the BB up in the...

I have done a Paragon 44mm HT's this way. It wasn't as hard/time consuming to indicate it in as I was expecting. I would clamp the DT with blocks for more rigidity and take light cuts. A bigger...

Lowering the BB won't materially lower your CoG. That's way up at your hips so, bringing that down 10mm won't make any difference you could feel. The goal is gain standover and not have the bike any...

Gus Salmon Decals seems to have production decals for existing brands. https://www.velocals.com/ Velocals also has production decals. You don't say who the builder was.

Looks good! Get a little dab at the top on the right where the bar meets the seatstay - just to complete the fillet. I find taking pictures and looking at my work through pictures help me see it...

What you show is how I do most of my non-lugged frames.

I have tried drilling a TT vent hole and pucker hole in the sleeve before brazing it to the ST. I could then use those holes to add filler...

Don't get me wrong. A production Specialized/Trek/Giant in the $2-4000 range represents amazing value if a 54-58cm size range bike fits you. They are well designed and engineered and ride really...
