    i"d heard about vapor blasting and was curiousl i found a place just down the road in Murrietta and gave them a try. Turned out well but a bit "silverish" for my liking. But it will be nice to work on a clean engine over the winter.

    Don\'t cry because its over. Smile because it happened

    I have never been a fan of blasting for that reason (amongst others) . Never tried vapour blasting though .... anyhoo, one way to get rid of the shine and IMHO leave a more natural finish, is wait for the bride to go shopping and then bung the shiny bits into the dishwasher.
    The dishwashing detergent reacts with the finish and dulls it down. I have always had really good results, but try a test piece first.

    I had some heads that were blasted with something more aggressive probably 40 years ago and they still looked like they just came out of the cabinet. Drove me nuts every time I looked at them. One round in the dishwasher and now they look totally normal. Cascade original in whatís in the cupboard now, but canít guarantee thatís what I used... and I assuming the type of dishwashing detergent would make a difference.


    Repeat.... try a test part. Donít want you hunting me down with your AR15

    I don't have an AR-15. Are you OK with a 12ga? I'm figuring a trip to Bonneville next year will have it back to normal. I had one engine sand blasted 30 years ago. I iked it better. But I can live with it.

    A 12ga is so much more personal.

    My father brought this one new from Spain back in the dark ages. This spring, I finally made the missing ejector bit. I like it, but it kicks like a mule.

    No unfortunately. Itís a Sarasqueta and it was made by J.J. not Victor. Some say they arenít all that great, but they (JJ) exported mostly lower end guns to North America and that is how they got their reputation. This is a model 135, which was the second from the top of the heap and as far as I know, none were ever sold here. It seems to be nicely done. Back when ďthe registryĒ was still afloat, I tried to comply.... took about 6 months of dicking around. I was repeatedly told it didnít exist because it was a O/U and they only made S/S. The fact that I had all of the original factory paperwork didnít seem to help. Finally ended up talking to a sensible young lady and she just made up another page in the system. Finally got the paperwork just in time for them to shitcan the whole registry.

    So I continued the saga of the widowmaker mailbox...

    Came home a few weeks ago to see this:



    And collected this debris (car mirror AND door handle):



    The weak point right now was both the wooden base (1.5" thick btw) and the outer lip of the mailbox (10ga steel).





    So I had a metal base made for it AND angle iron reinforcement for the outer edge:









    I may replace the upper section of 4x4 post so that I can once again use two 1/2" lag bolts, but we'll see how this holds up.
