    well I guess you're not an accountant or a lawyer then ;)

    I'd be interested to see how it works (not the result, but the process).

    Cheers

    Now that is interesting. I am working on an idea for doing the same thing in a slightly different way for re-graining a Chronostop case. I involves using diamond slips to achieve the delicate grain effect.

    At the moment I have refinished the case and it's ready for the graining, but due to house renovations, I can't get near my machinery to finish the job off. When I do, I will post up the result.

    Nice jigg but think it looks a little to ruff . I think a stick with about 400 grain paper would be perfect .

    Maybe I'll try wrapping the file in 400 and see how it looks! Thanks for the tip rogart! Thanks for all the good input guys!

    file wrap should be fine, just make sure it clamped down well
