" Fluxed" and Ready To Braze

The fork parts have been fluxed and are ready to braze. The flux helps protect the surface of the metal from forming oxides on the metal during heating and also helps as a wetting agent, ( it helps the brass flow easily during the process). Since these forks are going to have disc mounts, I use a heavier cap for the disc side to help with the additional loads from the disc mount.
