    Cool Re scaled W&B in Streaked Buffalo horn

    This was fun, I used a completely different system to take the warps out, and de-stress the horn..
    Many of you that use this stuff know that the Streaked Horn is the WORST of all of them for warping I will do a complete write up on what I used when I get time


    Polished the horn with 3M Tri-m-ite 400-8000 paper

    The pins are Brass the outside washers are domed SS inner bearing washers are Brass

    The wedge is Faux Ivory the scales are at .115" thickness

    No polishing on the steel

    Man, that's nice Glen.
    I always said that there is something special about old Sheffield's.
    If this doesn't prove it...nothing will.

    Oh wow! The 8k finish on the scales looks awesome! I may have to try that with my next horn project. Excellent work, as always, Glen.
