nafljhy, or anyone else, do you recommend any particular sealant for the brass mount? Something like Staybrite? I'm planning on polishing this thing to make it pretty, and want to seal it when done.

hmmm... i usually polish using a buffing wheel and some polishing compound. then after i washing off the polishing compound with some dish soap. i dry it and rub in mother's polish as a finish.

so i wouldn't really know about staybrite. i might have to look into that.

Thanks for the reply. I'm thinking that it might be more trouble than it's worth, plus I read that lacquer may not play well with heat. One of the last things I need is noxious fumes emanating from my rig.

i haven't made anything for the true yet. tbh, not really sure how to go about rotating the sucker and actually making a uni-piece mount. i think the best i could do for the true is a triple piece mount. :x
