    Quick update on this - I stuck with the regular non-ferrous primer (as I have a couple of cans of the stuff) and made sure that I rubbed it down properly with an old sock to knock the dusty texture off the primer coat. Then it was 2 light coats of black gloss followed by one slightly heavier coat - now I'm totally getting what Magicniner was saying in his post on the previous page... You've really got to watch for that fine line between the paint building up into a layer just thick enough to give you a glossy coat - too much more after that and I can see that it would have run. Luckily I was paying attention and the finish came out pretty sweet...

    But don't you think Clive the Screw slots being arranged Vertical to follow the lines of the handle sides would be nicer touch. . . . Great job Wal and nice shine.

    Nice job Wal, You obviously have your Full License for the old Airyassol-Can ;-)
    Matching screw alignment shows you care, don't listen to them, the angle of the dangle doesn't matter provided they match :D
    You think that's too expensive? You're not a Model Engineer are you? :D
