Velocino part 2

"Fishmouth" hole cut in short part of front frame.

Finished but quite wobbly
Results of my "tubemitre" Excel spreadsheet in the drafting program Draftsight.  Spreadsheet is available at . This pattern was printed out, wrapped and stickytaped around the short front frame tube and used as a drilling and filing guide for the required cut.  

 My velocino is finished but its a bit wobbly, and after a few minutes of trying, not quite rideable. I'm considering how to rework it and will decrease the fork rake a lot.  The "hinge catchplate" is admirably stable when bolted to the back of the folding bike.
