I'm just sitting here
Earlier today I took a drive to pick up a small blast booth for the compressor I bought a couple nights ago.
Note to self: If I go to the Tractor Supply that is 30 minutes south of me and not the one by the mall, wear cammo.
Additional note to self: I haven't worn cammo in at least 15 years. Buy larger sized cammo
So now my pistol is all ready for me to start finishing it with a rust blue treatment like my other one I showed. This one I am starting with a matte finish, which is why I needed a bead blaster. It hides imperfections, cleans all the old finish off and doesn't require near the work in polishing. Surprisingly, there isn't one gunsmith shop around that bead blasts. And I felt more comfortable doing it myself anyway. I've come too far to let someone screw it up.
Here it is after initial polishing and fitting. Making sure everything fits before I give it a final finish.
And my new toys... I mean tools in my shed. You know I've had that sweeper since before 1976. Talk about hoarding, but it was perfect for sucking the dust out of the blast booth using the provided hole. And what do I care if the fine glass bead dust ruins it.
