Finally got back to the shop after a little time with the family over Christmas. Since my Dad had some time off he came over to the shop to say hi and check out his frame. Since he was around I put him to work and had him silver braze the water bottle bosses to his frame. Being that this was his first time brazing anything he did a pretty good job! As it stands now, the front triangle of my new frame is almost ready to be tacked and then I can go ahead and brass braze both frames at the same time.
On a side note, a little while ago I picked up my old Gary Fisher "Hoo Koo E Koo" frame from a friend of mine. Back in college I sold it to him and he had ridden it to the ground. When I got it back the bottom bracket was almost completely frozen solid and the headset would hardly turn as well. The biggest draw of this frame (besides sentimental value) is that a 29er wheel with a 2.0 tire will fit in the back! With the bent seat tube it also has a crazy short chain stay of 15.75" (400mm). My goal to to eventually get it running as a single speed. Since it has an elevated chain stay it would be ideal for a belt drive! Also I plan on bringing it up to the times by installing disc tabs and building a front fork with disc tabs as well. Right now I have to roadblock ahead of me before I can start work on it. The first is that I have to replace the bottom bracket shell with an eccentric shell so I can run it as a single speed. This is not that big of a hurdle, however it will be somewhat of a pain in the rear. The bigger problem is with the headset. Back in the early 90's Fisher had the "evolution" 1 1/4 steerer tube, which necessitated a larger headset. Now unfortunately I need to find a headset that fits this now non-standard head tube. Anyhow, it should be a fun project!
