  1. Man what a beauty [emoji7] Sent from my Lenovo K53a48 using Tapatalk
  2. Newly filled indices, bare brass dial, blued hands to be lumed Sent from my Lenovo K53a48 using Tapatalk
  3. After so many trials and errors I decided to remove the black paint to leave the bare brass as a base and filled the indices with clear epoxy. I'll use it as is. Here are the pictures Sent from my Lenovo K53a48 using Tapatalk
  4. Tongues mounted. The one in the front is a stainless body with a brass tongue Sent from my Lenovo K53a48 using Tapatalk
  5. With their tongues Sent from my Lenovo K53a48 using Tapatalk
  6. This one is for a 24x24. With its big brothers Sent from my Lenovo K53a48 using Tapatalk
  7. There they are Sent from my Lenovo K53a48 using Tapatalk
  8. Thanks [emoji3] Guess what, the buckle tongue has turned out to be harder part to make. Still, I found way to handle that too. Stainless steel to is the more difficult one especially Sent from my Lenovo K53a48 using Tapatalk I suppose the brass is aged with boiled egg. Am I right? Sent from my Lenovo K53a48 using Tapatalk The brass is aged within boiled egg, I suppose. I'll give it a try. Sent from my Lenovo K53a48 using Tapatalk
  9. Two hand made GPF buckles I made for a project of two hand sewn straps. One is made from a 2 mm thick brass plate, and the other one from an old gun piece, a 4 mm thick dur aluminum. Here are the pics Sent from my Lenovo K53a48 using Tapatalk Now I understand why hand made buckles are sooooo expensive [emoji3] Sent from my Lenovo K53a48 using Tapatalk
  10. This how it should look when finished. Plus athaya crown tube, crown and CG installed Sent from my Lenovo K53a48 using Tapatalk
  11. With the renovated dial [emoji3] I'm happy with it. Finally Sent from my Lenovo K53a48 using Tapatalk
  12. Well, my method didn't work out well as it does on wooden surfaces. And I decided to get rid of the white printing on the Marina Militare as well. So the shellac adventure did turn up like this. Though the indices were not filled as they should I think I will not go on dealing with it anymore and leave it as is...

  13. It took me quite some time to drill and tap the case properly for the new crown tube. And yes mates I did it[emoji3] The plexi is from Cousinsuk. It's a ATC Sternkreuz 33.0 (ATC330) standard chrome ringed glass Sent from my Lenovo K53a48 using Tapatalk
  14. The process is called french polishing. I used my original method of guitar polishing method. Covering the whole surface with a thick level of shellac, filling the uneven parts, and french polishing until the surface becomes smooth and level Sent from my Lenovo K53a48 using Tapatalk
  15. Finally. A couple of finishing touches and done. Sent from my Lenovo K53a48 using Tapatalk
