    Hi Ken,

    Nice jig design, I want to make it myself.

    do you have a bill of materials for this jig?

    Cheers!

    Thank you. I have been checking out a few similar designs and like a lot of people, I can't afford the prices that frame jig builders are charging. I intend to build my own in the near future out of extrusion like yours. Do you know approximately how much it cost you? And if you were to build one again, what would you change?
    Thanks again for sharing your site.

    Hi.

    I spend about 20,000JPY(about $250) for my jig. I think you may make similar jig much cheaper. Everything is expensive in Japan.

    I planned my jig for lugged frame. So I'm planning to add some support parts for top tube and seat stay to make lugless frame.

    I am thinking about making a similar frame jig with extrusion. Have you had a chance to try it out yet? Do you have the part numbers of the extrusion you used?
    Looks nice.

    The jig is made from AL frame parts "LECO FRAME" of Yuki Giken in Japan.

    I'm not sure that they will ship outside of Japan. But I think you can find anything similar in your country.
