My daughter is coming home for Christmas so I thought I better wash the floors. My floors are tile and I don't think I've done anything to them for two or three years. After all, the Romans had tile floors and I don't ever recall reading anything about them washing them. Well, first off I kept running into #8 shot all over the house. Amazing how that stuff migrates. Have no idea how it gets from the gun room to the kitchen, but they were there. As I kept scrubbing what I thought was the pattern in the tile started coming off. Cheap tile? As I moved from room to room I started seeing little streaks that looked like spots I had missed. Like a cat chaseing a laser pointer I was on them. Finally figured out it was the sun shinning through the Venetian blinds onto the newly glossy floor. Don't know if I like the glossy look. Sorta like the fanatics who polish the receivers on their 66s when everyone knows you should shoot BP through them and let them turn a natural mustard color. The things we do for Christmas! ;) :lol::D :P

The shot migrates the same way small pistol primers do - in the tread of the soles of shoes !

The stainless steel media for wet tumbling seems to have those same wandering properties.

LARSEN,

 

You and I are just alike in that WE BOTH are in charge of our house.

 

Anytime I want to scrub my floors, my wife knows better than to try and stop me or discourage me..... :lol::lol::lol:

Howdy,

Yep, them 66 bronze parts need the varnish cleared off and then store them

in the kitchen where hot vapors will turn em after a bit.

I sold one a few years back.

I told the buyer how to continue the process or of course he could

shine em to blinding if he wanted.

Last I heard he decided to go with makin em look like the $13,000 originals

at the fancy gun shows.

Boy that was an accurate shooter and good lookin too.

Just so heavy....

Best
