    I was bored today and thought I'd play around with my Mini PT2. I wanted to give it that brushed look. Kinda worked, but not as expected.






    I'm not a huge brass or copper fan so I was a little disappointed once I started sanding it down. Meh. It isn't so bad.

    I'm not a copper fan either now. Turns my hands green , but it's what I have been dealing with. I tried for the brushed finish a well with my hardware copper mech mod, but it is slowly becoming polished from turning my hand green.

    It's chrome plated brass, but there is a copper layer between to help with adhesion of the chrome to the brass. If you continue to sand it down you will find it is solid brass underneath the copper. I've turned down several Kanger drip tips into other shapes and they are all made of plated brass.
