    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
  5. 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

    Shellac and Sandarac Filled Sandwich Dial for 6152/1

    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... Sent from my Lenovo K53a48 using Tapatalk

    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

    Shellac and Sandarac Filled Sandwich Dial for 6152/1

    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

    I guess I need something like that after taking the measurements correctly https://tapsndies.com/metric-tap-m25-x-35 Sent from my Lenovo K53a48 using Tapatalk

    Thanks for the direction. I've searched for gauges and found the Bergeon one. Thought that it would work standard gen parts, not for this one. From the picture I can only get the diameter and I can measure it myself too. But the threads. Anyway, I thought rather than tapping, I might just drill .1mm larger than the original diameter and use either glass hypo cement or some loctite 222. Sent from my Lenovo K53a48 using Tapatalk
