isn't this the root of this thread? there's a certain breed of cat
that wants to believe that the tooling will help along with the
learning curve regarding framebuilding. if you don't know
what goes where, how to braze, how to design, how to ascertain
proper clearances and interference fits, and the like, all this
tooling is only going to get in the way. if you only have 5-10
or even 50 frames under your belt, and then you have this
monstousity of a precision table telling you that there's an
error, how will you possibly have the tactile senses required
to know how much and which way to tug on things so that
they're right? etcetera.
