and another thing

this is one of those things, like Frameforum and WikiPedia and imdb, that make the internet so flippin' sweet.
i have access to a milling machine this fall, but apparently almost nobody at my school knows how to use it. but after learning a bit from this site and some practice and guidance i figure i oughtta be able to make some cool stuff.

of particular interest to readers:
heat treating
boring with a vertical mill (looks like a good way to make a head tube sleeve from 4130 tubing, as previously described in an email to the FBs list)
an exhaustive glossary

cool background reading:
fundamentals of measurement and related lingo

also a sweet forum/message board
