    Meek squirrel watch.

    Just finished with my Meek Squirrel watch. It's an old Seiko watch I bought used from a friend. While not on the same level as one from David Sheehan or Ron Jr. and others ,the ones I saw on this site certainly made me want one ! I replaced the yellow crown with a silver one ,changed from a...

    Engraving bronze

    How is bronze to engrave ? I've just found bronze watches. They seem to have plenty of real estate and I like the look. On one website, they show a disc that must have been cut off a bar of bronze and the watchcase is machined out of that. Thanks, Mark

    Tarnish on nickle silver

    I'm just about ready to put my watch together with my new MeekSquirrel dial and I'm a little concerned about tarnish. In the photo, you see a pendant I made for my granddaughter a couple years ago. It looks just dirty or smeared. Should I spray the dial with clear lacquer or coat with wax ...

    Critique Request Meek squirrel

    Can I get some critique on my Meek Squirrel ? I think he looks a little bushy in the extreme close up but at a normal eye length he looks quite a bit better. The pics were taken outside on a cloudy day and reveal so much more than the indoor lights. I don't have it darkened with ink yet . I...

    French gray ( grey ) finish.

    I'm almost ready to put the finish on my project. It's the 10/22 I've been working on for months. I've looked all over for some direction for a French Gray finish but have had no luck.

    duplicate transfer tip

    A few weeks or months ago, ( I can't find it to reply to it ) . Someone posted a tip for transferring an image with a smoke pull. I think it said to smoke the image, pull it with tape and transfer it onto the blank with Dammar varnish. Well, I couldn't get that to work. So, I still use the...

    What can I cut over on my rifle reciever ?

    I'm working on my first gun engraving. It's my little 10-22 I've had for some 40 years. On the left side, I'm wondering what I have to leave. The serial number, RUGER brand, caliber and model and Ruger insignia along with the trademarks. I would like to know what options I have when I layout the...
