I’ve had these bullet blanks since about April. I bought them from an e-bay seller, good price, and already tubed. The rest of the pen parts I bought from Wood-n-Whimsies during a slimline pen parts sale. Finally got an itch to do up a handful of these instead of one at a time. I got to practice CA and BLO finish over and over, and try out using wire to burn wood on the lathe. I had a cello string that my daughter saved for me. Smokin’ ; )
Has anyone had any experience polishing the brass or nickel bullets ? I tried several different things but couldn’t seem to get the micro scratches buffed out.
Thanks for looking,
