    Default Created a Mod Polishing Jig

    I was trying to find a good way of polishing/brushing my Mods soooo, I ran off to Home Depot and grabbed the goods to come up with this... Mod Polisher Spinning Holder Thingy




    1/4 Threaded rod - 1/4 nuts / wing nuts, 1/4 fender washer and lock washer - Picked up a few #3 drilled stoppers from the local HomeBrew shop to help keep it centered and prevent wobble.

    Mounted on a drill and worked it with sandpaper --- Worked out pretty well !!

    Copper VaporWall Nemesis:


    Black Copper Stingray w nice little Patina growing:

    On another topic ... was not happy with switch, too much wobble and crunch.

    1 -Cleaned up the switch post and inside switch threaded ring with a little ultra fine sandpaper.

    2 -I find the rice pins are too small on clones and some authentics: I found that 12g solid copper wire fits perfect on many Nemesis/Stingray type switches. Not too loose and Not too tight to cause problems... and its copper, cant hurt right !

    very creative, nice job!!! all of my mods are SS, chromed or painted so I don't have to polish them, but if I ever buy a copper mod, I'll steal your idea

    That's a great idea!! I have been using a old carto in a drill threaded in the 510. That looks more solid.

    I tried that too ...the problem was you have to leave the top cap on and be very careful not hit that with the sandpaper. Also when I stopped the drill the MOD would spin it self loose.
