Give me shout next time you head to Leigh woods and we can meet up. I'll carry your tools in my bag as a peace offering!

Personal preference I suppose. I'd rather keep all my stuff in my bag so I know where it is rather than having to remember everything before I go. But if a bottle and a few things in your pocket is good for you, then so be it.

Dropouts are seat tube with a turned end plate. Mech hanger is cut from 4mm sheet and brazed on. All the tubes are Columbus Life. Good quality butted tubes. On ly exception is the swingarm upright which is plain old mild steel.

It is indeed 8 mm, good guess! Water jet cutting is pretty standard, there's grit mixed in to aid with the cutting. Not sure what pressure it's at though.

Xprezo Adhoc - Review
Exactly, "common on older road frames that have been ridden day after days for years". Everything fails eventually, but steel will be there the longest.
