Re: Glenfield 60 Restoration project
Zach, using a dremel for all the work = a whole lot more work. Get some bigger tools to borrow if you can. It will make working with the pieces a little faster and more uniform. Using a full sized buffer or even a scotch brite ball on a drill if you are stipping metal pieces. I am not exactly sure what your build entails.
On the stock, I used Citristip to remove the finish, hot water and a towel to help remove some of the old stain. An iron on hot towels works good for that too. I then stained it and I use a two part catalyst sealer (used in woodworking/cabinet and furniture) call Krystal. (Satin...comes out glossy) 4 coats sprayed on.
Bluing - I use Arts Belguin Blue (Midway USA) or Oxpho-bue (Brownells). Both work well. There are alot of Youtube videos on how to use them.
