Rock on. Yeah... I didn't want to tack weld with the rear wheel sitting in the dropouts.I've not seen superglue used as a tack before. I usually use one big (welded) tack which will take a bit of abuse should the fine adjustment hammer be required. One tack allows a lot more movement than several and a bit of thought as to where that tack should be to allow best movement usually pays dividends. There are times when you need to apply some weight to the joint though to see alignment and one tack may not do then.

Noticed when I measured that the previous wheel and the one I'm going to ride on have different axle diameteters and lengths.
Needed to improvise without potentially compromising the axle. Came up with that.
I finished a warrior a few months ago and i am about 3/4 of the way through a tomahawk, this time I made the gap for the tire at front 3.00" instead of what the plans said. I found out with the warrior, there was so little room that if i used a tire with almost any tred, it would rub. I didn't see any reason to have that gap so narrow and all it did was make lining it up a pain and limitedthe kind of tires i can use.
Rock on. That idea crossed my mind initially.I ordered my parts to all the right sizes with all the angles on it. It was just putting it togheter.
I feel ya there. Possibly do that for a future build.I get my metal ad a factory and they also lacer cut parts for me.
I make drawings and send dxf's for the laser cutter. Only need to put my model in the cad and after it is cut, I can build it togheter. Safes a lot of time.
I get that. Was thinking about it after taking a nap. Figured my misalignment issue was due to the drop outs.Misalignment happens. If it's large you can 3/4 slice the relevant tube, twist and reweld. If it's small I've "adjusted" it with a vice and large pipe wrench around the relevant section. The main thing is the wheels point correctly. If the steelwork has to be manipulated to achieve that then it's rarely a major problem.
