First set of Jack Daniels bottle grips are ruined. Rough cut went pretty good, mostly clean edges. The problem was when I tried to use a beveled bit to knock the burs off. Glass just started chipping like crazy. They look like the edge of an arrowhead now, and are sharper than before. I'm gonna try to use a Dremel wire wheel, toothpaste and 2000 grit sand paper next time. The glass seems to cut cleanly as long as the bit is small and goes straight down. It chips when the bit is angled. I'll figure out a way to make this work.

Well I didn't have it timed right. A friend came over, got it timed(I was way off) and it shoots pretty good.

By the way, I really, really hate Eggys. 300psi in the tank.

Why not just use plexi thats been vaccuformed over the logo? Thin enough plexy will take to the raised logo fairly well while eliminating the broken glass issue. Plexy also mills fairly well.

I just wanted GJD glass grips. First thing that a lot of my friends think about when they think about me is the poison.

I'm not a drunk, by the way. Just my drink of choice.

Well the glass is insanely thick, it won't break unless I hit it with a chisel and hammer. I've dropped the bottles(for obvious reasons.....inebriation) on asphalt many times. If can figure out a way to knock the edge off I'll be perfectly satisfied in reference to safety.

Hmm, hammer back another bottle and get those glass grips (crazy but awesome idea) water jet cut. Or just try some sandpaper and just take it slow on the edges. Post pics of the grips when you do finally get them cut.

I have a halfblocked autococker lightning. Would polishing it hurt the value of it? Would it be better just to leave the black anno on it?

My gun was polished and cleared originally so when I polished it I was simply removing the top layer and getting rid of the scuffs, scrapes and discoloration. Polishing also smoothed out the surface by spreading the top coat and filling in micro flaws from its original finish. Think of wet sanding a cars paint.

I had a full Orracle get fully polished like that, and you don't need a clear coat or anything to keep it in good condition. You just need to wax it. LK-13 over on CC and MCB has a polishing service and does great work, and does polishing for a living. If you really want to know how to take care of it without dropping a ton on it, you might want to shoot him a PM or two. Good guy who knows what he's talking about.

I'm very familiar with polishing metal, and you don't need a clear coat. It will oxidize a little faster without one but that is cured by a quick polishing job.
