Or maybe you can find one of these the right size:
Didn't watch the whole video... basically push through all the BS when working on something?

What is one of those things picture'd there? I'll have a look at ACE.

Also the paint is rubbed off so was it loose and sawing on the tube?

Maybe save the frame by putting a tight fitting piece of pipe/ tubing
down the seat post.

An extra seat post all the way down to the bottom bracket might have
saved your frame?
I believe it was flat against it... not sure what happened.
I'll look for one of those things Nehmo posted, whenever I find out what they're called.

EDIT: Pipe Repair Clamps... will those be effective for "repairing" my frame?
(Now that it seems I'm not giving up... thanks everybody)
The best part about asking questions, is that you add to the pool of information that future builders can look back on through the search function
