A couple of my shooting buddys are building rifles and asked me to case color harden their locks. This is charcoal case and although they were done together each has its own colors and patterns. One fellow wants his screws cased the other will be nitre blueing his screws.

I have a question for you sir.
do the parts require Brite polishing before the case hardening?
i lied, two questions
do you case harden for those that aren't shooting buddies? how about for internet buddies?
that is beautiful work. one of the multitude of things i always wanted to do and haven't done.

These are about 600 grit polish as compared to 320 grit on this Sharps.
I have retired and only on rare occasions do anything for anyone.
