  2. Right... clearly not a torch job. I went with Birchwood Casey Plum Brown, then a cold bluing on top of that, then sealed. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  3. Pic of original finish I think. http://s249.photobucket.com/user/B0nZ69/media/newport/DSC05357.jpg.html Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  4. Yeah man I have a blasting cabinet. And occasionally will blast b4 heating if I'm going for a muted, satin finish. Though the idea on the latest finish was to try to replicate (as closely as possible) the oilcan finish that this was originally finished in. I don't have a plating setup or bluing tank, so it's been a lot of trial and error to try to get that mix of blues and browns that was Cameron's best finish imo. Anyway it's intentionally uneven, at least the most recent post is. Good looking out on the suggestion tho. Thanks man! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  5. This is as close as I can get to the original finish on the old school Cameron oilcan classics. This was in real rough shape when I picked it up, but I only have one pic from then, unfortunately.

  8. Imo the Wedge vs putter is an apples/oranges comparison. Putting is and should be generally pretty low impact- that is, the collision between ball and club is, well it's hardly even a collision. Contrasted against the strike that occurs on a full wedge swing... I've worn the faces of brand new vokeys down in a summer before. I was playing daily, but still, repeated impact takes a toll. Paint will chip scuff and look like hell after a few strikes - full swings are violent. I have a vokey that I did in polymer and a Callaway 3 iron. Neither finish lasted through impact with more than 4 balls. I'll find pics and post. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  9. I've always wondered how well that stuff works Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  10. Should have it or a reasonable equivalent at Home Depot/Lowe's/walmart. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  11. If the finish is painted then tal-strip or equivalent will work. If it's plated, pvd, etc... you're gonna want to blast or sand the existing finish off. The group can prob help with a little more detail... what kind of putter, or maybe a pic and someone will be able to chime in with something useful. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  12. That's the color it should've been finished in originally. Hope Mr Rife is taking notes. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  13. Yeah in some form or fashion. Either strip the pvd/plating and black oxide or blast followed by black polymer. Here's my gamer that I just finished in black oxide. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
