    Do we get a side by side shot Tom.

    That is the closest to a nice looking gold dollar as any I have seen. Here is what I see the issue with "fixing" a gold dollar, the increase in value is near zero. At least playing with vintage blades you can often get a little more back than what it costs to repair. However if you add in the learning experience with zero risk of crying should things go wrong...

    Oozing funk. Now you need a similarly funky brush to go with it. I think on that you are on your own.

    Default gluing Bakelite

    I am trying to repair the broken black bakelite scales from the little W&B Bow razor I mentioned in an earlier post. I figured I'd first try to mix up some black epoxy from some two-part epoxy.

    I used some Rit black dye powder -- this was actually not the best thing to do, because it turns out that Rit black dye is pretty gritty stuff, and that stuff doesn't dissolve so readily. I tried a little denatured alcohol (which most epoxies tolerate just fine as a thinner), but I still I had a lot of grit in the bottom. I figure I should just actually go out and buy some fine powdered black pigment at a woodworking store next time.

    Anyway, I poured off some of the liquid into the epoxy mixture. Looks pretty black. It is unfortunately also kind of runny, so I mated up the pieces under parchment paper and will know more tomorrow. If the the bond is strong, I'll then proceed to fill in the missing chip.

    Anyway, lesson learned: no Rit dye in epoxy next time.

    I have used graphite to dye epoxy with great luck, but larger quantities for filling knot holes in the making of funky furniture. You can get epoxy pigments. However if you take an old scale of similar composition you can grind it up and use it as a filler/colorant in your epoxy and you can buy black epoxy too.
