Himself told me about that and I forgot. Was DL a rerun? I found this Youtube of Fillion on DL back in 2011:

If you get a chance it would be nice if you could tell us more about some of the planned features of your new home; E.G.:
Cellar / basement, high cellar (extending 3-5' above ground)?
Mud room?
Pantry?
Eat-in kitchen?
Evaporative cooling?
Fireplace?
Water supply source(s) and water treatment?
Easy access bath?
Roofing, siding, and glazing materials?
Gas and electric?
Plumbing materials (pex, copper, PVC), washerless faucets?
Porch / patio / veranda materials?
Landscaping?
Outbuildings?
Good luck

Waiting to go to the airport to pick up mom. She was supposed to be here at 11:30 but in my mom's typical style she missed her flight by losing track of time, lol. She'll be here at 3 instead.

It wouldn't be a typical visit with her without some snag

Nice of Mom to get the snag out of the way at the very beginning of the trip so you can enjoy your visit. Cherish the moments you have with your mom always. Never take them for granted, and remember them always. Have fun!

I just got back from my buddy's house and dropping off five parts of my pistol I've been working on. I polished it last night and he blended "blended" it in on his equipment. Tomorrow morning the parts are getting blued. Then it's put everything back together and hope it still fits.

What is blending?

It's like buffing. There's a special blending wheel on a bench grinder that you use with oil. Kind of like buffing wheels use compound.

I had the pistol polished using various grits of sandpaper to *almost* look like chrome. All the nicks and scratches had been removed (remember, this came right off a CNC machine. Everything was rough). Blending made all the areas look similar where a flat area met a curved area. And it's a time saver as you don't need to polish as much and keep changing grits of sandpaper. I could stop at 600 grit because we put this blended finish on it.
I honestly can't say how it will affect the bluing though, as he has never put a blended finish on a gun he has blued. I'm hoping it gives it a slight satin look.
What color the gun comes out is determined by the composition of the metal. Some look blueish and some black.

I keep hoping he calls and says let's do it tonight instead. I'm anxious.
Bluing only takes about twenty minutes once the tank full of chemicals is heated up.

I bet it will look beautiful! What type of pistol is it? A revolver?
