Self Challenge - Week 5
Lots of little things got done this week. New vise jaw liners for the smaller vise on my raising stump. That vise got remounted so it doesn't wobble any more. I mixed up a batch of Edinburgh etch solution in preparation for some experiments. Several boxes of miscellaneous stuff got unpacked and put away properly. And I finished two more cuffs.
Both cuffs are fold formed and air chased. The left one is brass, no patina, tumble polished and sealed with spray lacquer. The right is copper, liver of sulfur patina and brass brush plating on the center forms. Also spray lacquer sealed.
