    You can use a dark colour for contrast or get it in a bone colour to blend it. Outback Mike has a very good epoxy he uses. I would PM him for product details.

    I will shoot him a PM. I was thinking of using u-40 Rod Bond I use it for gluing reel seats and handles to fishing rod blanks. Good bonding and flexibility.

    I am not familiar with the product. Mike uses a structural epoxy and has had great results using it. The hardware store variety syringe glue that I have access to is sub par.

    hardware store variety syringe glue usually is. LOL I will definitely shoot mike a massage to see what he is using but I am going to give the U-40 I have a try just to see wow it works out. I even found a piece of white G-10 in my shop.

    I couldn't choose just one so I cleaned them all...LOL

    The Bengall on the bottom is not the same one as in the OP

    That’s is a pretty nice stack of clean blades. Extra hollow blades I rarely do much with. A good scrub with 0000 and WD-40 is about it. The 1/4 hollows can be reground and made pretty pristine. Karl Johnson and Job do amazing regrinds. I haven’t played with it too much. You can basically do a regrind by hand, but it takes time and you have to be aware of the pitfalls but I’ve seen some stellar handwork around here.

    I don't think #1,#3 and the bengall need any more done to them aside from reassembly and honing #2 and #4 are full or near wedge and I don't know how to proceed with them so thy are going to be set aside until I can go at them with some confidence in what I am doing..

    Oh man, I hope you didn't sand the etching of Washington off of that #4 razor. That was very savable.

    Start out with 3M Marine Metal Polish and Restorer and a rag. Polish it until it's clean then (if necessary) darken with gun blue or black then relieve the high part back to shiny with lapping film around a dowel.
    I'll try to find and link back to some threads on it. I did one or two and Richard (Geezer) has done some also.
