    Default Brass lined Scales!

    Well I found another post about this process after I made mine, and wish I would have had the input. Hopefully I dont have issues with the flex of the scales.

    Either way I think they turned out alright, Now to finish cleaning up the blade.Name:  brasslinedscales1.jpg

    Are you going to coat the inside with anything to keep them from tarnishing? Looking good.

    Well it is polished to 12k micromesh and I added 4 coats of Ren wax, think that will be enough?

    For a little while. Renaissance Wax is not a permanent sealing. It needs to be re-applied every so often depending usage. Lacquer is the way to go.

    I was thinking of something like CA or clear nail polish. I haven't messed with brass liners yet. I was hoping to learn a trick or two perhaps someone in the loop will tell us.

    Thanks! I'll be sure to spray them before I put it together

    This is what we put in on door knobs in a century home. 5 years and we didn't need to reapply.

    Stop Polishing Brass and Enjoy the Beauty. Stop Tarnish and Fingerprints Too.

    Does it only work on brass? I have some stain less steel sheets I was thinking about doing the same thing as the brass scales

    I have only used it on brass. For the SS I have used brushed SS and a matte poly finish. Not on razor scales but for door inlays.
