    Damn Jerry, I'm impressed! I need to make a bunch more scales. Looking good though. I admire your industious...ness...... I guess that would be, "I admire your industry," wouldn't it?... ...WHATEVER. I admire something.... And whatever it is I admire the CRAP out of it.

    DISCLAIMER: I wasn't sure where to put this so this seemed like the only logical place.

    Hey I found this cool thing in some stuff of my dad's and I thought it was pretty useful for hand sanding.

    It is 1" in diameter and the rubber part is 3 " long.I've never seen one before and I don't know where I'd get another one if I were looking for one but it is the perfect diameter for hand sanding. Plus it seems to be a good diameter for light polish sanding or surface sanding after bluing engravings or stampings inside the hollow. The rubber is stiff and it has a little give to it.
    I've never used it for what it was made for at least by putting it in the end of a drill, just for hand sanding. I've also never seen one before and I don't know where I'd find one if I were looking for it. Just thought it was useful.

    .. but I opted not to reshape the point and "Shwartz" the crack. You can't see any of the gold plating anymore. There were only vague traces of it left. I like those orange scales with the center stabilizer pin.
