Fear me!

For I have a bottom bracket tap, made by Cobra, and courtesy of Peter at Ceeway.

It joins my lovely headtube reamer (also by Cobra) as one of my finest tools.

Now I don't feel quite so bad at parting with Ben's frame, as the proceeds bought me this :)

On a completely unrelated note, I think I have my answer as to how to do the seat stays on Keith's bike, and still polish the seat lug:

Graeme found a pic stream from Anderson custom bikes, showing what he did in a similar circumstance:

I think it looks incredibly cool, so shall shamelessly copy.

Suzy, I'm so happy to see that you're going to polish the seat lug. The shiny headlugs, dropouts, fork ends, and now fork crown really deserve this. Graham.

I'm thinking of building my first frame, and so am finding this blog very useful. Thanks for your effort!

Suzy, here's another idea for joining painted seat stays to a polished seat lug.
