    I was worried about that, it looked as if there was a crimp around the knot.
    Maybe try clamping it with a hose clamp, gentle like.
    Might come back together enough not to really notice.

    Hell of a day to be doing yard work. Missed like a hundred posts.
    Great projects afoot men.
    Keep it up this weekend.
    Tom, really impressive re and re on that interior buddy. Think I have a bad heater core in my Audi actually. You can afford a ticket north now to help me.. aim for Aug 20 and you can meet a bunch of us Canucks at the same time.

    Then I set it down & it just came apart by itself. This one looks like it screws on but I know that other one isn't.

    Default Evaporust and gold wash

    I posted earlier about a Globusmen (says Globemen on the blade and Globusmen on the scales, go figure) with gold wash but also rust, and said I'd try some Evaporust and report back.

    Here are the results. First, in the scales:

    What it looked like out of the scales:

    In the Evaporust (with a lever cap for a Stanley Bailey #3 I'm trying to put in working order):

    And after a night in the Evaporust:

    I do believe the gold wash is slightly faded, but it's hard to tell if that's just lighting.

    It looks better than it did.

    You can put a piece of scotch tape ( satin finish ) over the gold, then trim the excess away from the gold. This will protect the gold while polishing.

    Hi Folks,A request...
    When quoting, please remove/ delete the photos/ links from your reply. The photos do take up a huge amount of storage space on the servers.
    I used to get my butt chewed regularly for forgetting that fact and request.

    Takes some doing! Click/ select a photo, backspace...I just use the backspace key and erase the photos or text I don't want one character at a time.I finally have a computer after 2 months of awaiting connections. Lots easier on it.
    Thanks
