    Great job on the color matching! It looks spot on to me. As a reference point, how many cycles did you have to rust/card this to get to that level?

    I'd be interested to know as well. Any resource you used, or could recommend, on how to get a good rust blue finish?

    Did you ever get the drawings?

    I just snatched a JGA DSM34 that will need to be restored off an online auction for cheap. I haven't gotten it since it's coming out of NC. Pictures weren't the best but your resto has given me hope.
    Unfortunately no drawings. I am still hopeful someone will have a extractor or repro-extractor for sale that I find.

    Since the band had already been bead blasted, it was fairly porous -- which is exactly what you need for rust bluing. It tooks me 5 cycles to get it where it is. I basically ran a couple cycles then compared it to the barrel until I got the color I wanted. If my barrel had more bluing on it, it probably would have taken twice as many more.

    I used this stuff to inhibit the rust: http://www.laurelmountainforge.com/b...brown_inst.htm

    For those unfamilar, the process runs like this (with deblued metal - white vinegar removes bluing)

    1. Degrease
    2. Apply rust inhibiter
    3. Hang out to rust in a moist environment ( I hang my parts over (and partially in) a pot filled with water. Some folks have enclosures that they keep humid.
    4. After a good bit of rust is in place, boil rusted parts in distilled water for 5 min - rust turns black
    5. Card (ie scrub off with a fine steel brush) the black "rust" to see the blued metal
    6. Repeat steps 2-5 until bluing is dark enough
