joe - Please don't take this as 100% certain, but I believe i read somewhere (Home Shop Machinist Mag?) That some gunsmiths simply use a wooden dowel mounted in a drillpress with some type of polishing or rubbing compound to achieve the damaskeen finish. Anyone else familiar with this technique?
I have been looking for the tool that you can use in a drill press to put some damaskeen (sp) swirls on it like they do on some gun finishes
