i need a way to hold the stays and fork blades for filing and brazing. hand-filing means lots of time with the tubes in a vise, so it'd be nice to have blocks i'd imagine, istead of just the soft jaw covers.
check with city bikes about what finishing tools they have (like what size steerer can they work with) and how much they charge
can they check and set alignment?
