Looking good Bob!


Can't wait to see it done!!


How are you finishing the wood??


I know you said you are rust bluing the metal...are you using any kind of agent to speed the process??


Didn't know it at the time..I used Mark Lee Express Blue on mine...I guess at the end of the day it is a rust blue...

Heat the parts and wipe them with the chemical...they rust instantly...boil them and they start to blue...very durable and looks great...

Please post pics when done. This sounds interesting. A process I haven't read about before.

Looks like the forearm is kinda u shaped, and extra wood,done that myself on the first one, kinda knock the corners off and make it more acorn, more tapered take a look at some builders websites or grab a copy of Shumway rca books and you will see what I mean. I'm no expert but when I was shown what I should do it took a second gun yet to kinda figure it out.
