Depending on the frame there may be no holes present. I may need to be corrected here,JimH said:I'm trying to apply Frame Saver to my Serotta CIII and can't find any hole or entry to apply Frame Saver to Seat Stays or Chain Stays. Can someone point me in the correct direction. Thanks Jim
Any time you are heating up enclosed spaces (such as frame tubes) for welding or brazing you need some type of vent hole hole, to prevent gas pressure from building up (heated gasses could bubble out the joint, forcing melted metals out or causing gaps or bubbles in the weld/braze). In addition, many inert gas welding technologies require some type of purge hole, so that inert gases may be "injected" into the tubes to prevent atmospheric contamination. So your TIG Pegoretti undoubtedly had some venting holes. However, many frame builder seal these holes after welding and/or brazing, so it may not be obvious where they were.Road cyclist said:Depending on the frame there may be no holes present.

but with TIG welded frames, those holes in the stays which are present my older type
steel frame (to aid in the escape of gases during welding) are not needed. At least on
my Pegoretti there are none.
