    In half an hour I was able to try several times. Painted it on with a brush, wiped it off, used different grades of steel wool - I got a pretty good feel for it.

    Once the shot glasses arrive it should be pretty straightforward to compliment them.

    This is a nice factory bluing job. It's wear resistant. All about the process I guess.

    Forget all the BS on the gun forums. Pack these baby's with plain ol' lithium axle grease, and no crossfire, and a good clean bore.

    I've been shooting those repros for 35 years and the only time I've ever greased anything was the very first time I shot one. Just a sloppy mess that will tend to lock up a '58 Remington clone. If your ball shaves a ring when you press it in you will never see a chain fire. With black powder in those guns you cant get enough velocity to lead a barrel. I shoot with 5-10 other guys that all do the same so there must be something to that. Most of us do use the lubricated "wonder wads" under the ball... Those help reduce the chance of chain fires and lube the barrel after the first shot.

    P.S., we might want to take this discussion down to the shooters thread.

    Looks fantastic! One little bottle will last ages, and you'll find yourself hunting for more stuff to "blue". Taking the shine off the brass really makes a world of difference!

    Probably going to try copper plating the rail with battery acid and copper sulfate.

    I found if you use it according to the directions it comes out kind of blotchy sometimes.

    I just put it on generously with a sponge or a paper towel and let it dry.

    I then wipe it down with oil and Iím done.

    It comes out nice and dark and I havenít seen any bad effects doing it that way.

    I like everything polished.

    I would run into that glass and knock it over - make sure you put it somewhere so I can't!
    Do not believe everything that you think.

    Added some lugnuts so the base looks more finished. Dang if copper sulfate and battery acid make a great copper plating solution! Please with how the rail came out.

    So, what price you think I can list it at?

    Re: Man Cave Table - Ideas for Finishing Touches

    I like it. The only quibble is the pads on the bottom of the glass at the corners. It detracts from the look and makes it look like the glass is re-purposed from a table or something. Is there a way to remove them? Maybe put some Goof-Off, acetone, or other solvent on them to loosen the glue.

    In regards to price, I would be at $350 at one of the galleries where I have items. They like quirky or high end items. If it was in the other gallery near me, I would be at $250. If it was a direct sale, $250

    I'm going back and forth on the pads. My thinking is they give a bit of reference for where the corners are (in case it's dark or the user is...relaxed lol.)

    They will come off easily.

    You thinking that new bar fridge is a little too convenient? I like to think of it as stock piling aluminum for when the price goes up....
