Some of the lug sets are from Long Shen as otherwise you would have to order them from Taiwan, though the lugs do not always have their origin specifically identified on the website. Additionally they stock brazing sundries and will sell brass and silver rods in small quantities as well as a large range of frame building tools. They are constantly adding new items whilst maintaining a range of classic frame parts.
