I like the subtle colors on the machine.

Was it hard to put together? You have to use epoxy, correct?

Hope you don't mind, but here is a link to the Crank Shaper that I worked on, which may give you a few tips.

Thanks go out to all you guys who looked in and left some very nice comments everyone is appreciated.
So thanks go out to
Arthur, Ron, Darryl, Karl A., Larry, Roland.

Thanks "M" for looking at yours. It will help when I start the next one.

Darryl to answer your question on the coloring.
After I blacken-it and buff it out with a felt pad.

In a 1/2 ounce bottle half filled with thinner (mineral spirits) I added 100 drops of Model Master medium green paint + 10 drops of Model Master flat black.
You need to really mix it good and then apply it with a #4 shader brush. The small places I use a 00 round. Because its so thin I just keep added coats until I get the coloring I want.

I still need to go back and weather it with some brown & black pastel powders.

The only other thing I can say is tanks to Brett for keeping the quality in all the pieces he does. it sure makes it a lot easier putting them together.

Arthur there not that hard to put together. You need to pay attention to the instructions and most of all take your time.

With the way Brett does the castings he makes it easy.

Looking great Jerry - thanks for all the kind words, much appreciated. I have been blackening and buffing my metal castings for many years, since I was involved in the jewelry business. Glad the technique has worked so well for you!
