Bigger than a mini mill, smaller than a full size Bridgeport. Less expensive than them all. Meets the level of precision needed for the processes I want to streamline. It is quite solid, everything cranks down tight and heavy. The table swivels on the drill shaft axis (x and z) and the post axis. The x-y table slides in increments that are perfect, I also can unloosen the bolts and swivel on the z axis. Check out a woodruff cutter and tube I set up on a dropout. It took like a minute to do.

The Krauss Bicycles’ Frame Fitter is complete and ready for paint. This Frame Fitter has the ability to fit frames with Seat Tube/Effective Top Tube lengths from 38cm/45cm to a whopping 70/70. It actually can go to an even longer seat tube. Thinking of going to the blue hue on this one. The fit studio will be in Volpe Cycles shop at 115 S 22nd St. in sunny Philadelphia.
If you are a bicycle shop in need of a Krauss Bicycle Frame Fitter or a serious cyclist looking for an indoor trainer, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’d be happy to build one to suit your needs.
I never owned or even used a spoke tensioner before, because I just never needed one. Heavy rider or heavy use? make ‘em feel tighter! But with wood rims, you really need to know how to get even tensioning. It is in my opinion critical. Plus, you get a better understanding the dynamics of spoke tension changes as you true up the rim.
