Stainless Pacenti Lugs

I needed a diversion from the campy bike so I decided to start on John's lugs. My first experience with Pacenti's lugs has gone well. Stainless is interesting to work with. The files want to hop over the raw edges of the steel. Once I make a few passes and get into the grain the files start to bite and we're on the way. The shore lines are tough to keep at a 90 to the tube. Every nuance in the curvature of the lug seems to be amplified once you slip it over a tube.

The series below took 6 hours from start to finish not counting the final polish. Yeah Per Lug... 2 more to go.
