Having issues rust bluing my underhammer parts. I degreased, and applied the solution to the small parts and they came out decent. Today, I tried to get the receiver and butt plate. The butt plate is not bad, but the receiver is a joke. (just a light gray) I am thinking about changing horses mid stream. Has anyone tried oxpho-blue? I know it is not a rust blue, but I really don't care. I just want an even smooth job, that is relatively simple. So, is this product good? Would I want to apply this over the weak color that I now have from the rust blue? If I go this Brownell product, do I need to clean everything and start all over.:doh:
Thanks

Absolutely...very good product....take your time have it hot...but not hot enough to burn yourself...used it several times with great results...being clean and warm or hot enough is what worked best for me...!!!

Need multiple rounds 3-4 to get a decent coat. Sweat box, boil, card, repeat. It is how weapons were blued until wwii.
