Fork Progress

After some more practice notching, brazing and cleanup work I put together another fork as the start of my next frame set.  Thanks to Dave Bohm for the past critique on my earlier fork attempts.  Big take away from his comments – work on the bend and make it more uniform and less “dog leg”.  I think I got that much better this time and happy with the bender.  Used more FLUX per Dave’s comments as well!
