This centerband-less chrome slimline is the result of thinking about Scott’s slimline experiment, seen here:
The start

I wanted to make a slimline with a little shape, keep it comfortable, do away with the CB, and make it flow. This is what I came up with.

The barrels are cut sharp to the hardware, then coved between ends.
The upper barrel is cut long, then countersunk so it slips over the end of the lower barrel.
Turned with a skew, wet-sanded with MM, then buffed out with Novus 2 & 1!
Wow, Novus is great stuff—I’m sold on it. Thanks Mike & Linda for stocking it.

Comments and criticisms welcome.

Thanks. LOML kept this one.
Darryl, the Novus polish makes it glow—that’s a pretty realistic photo. ;-)
