  • Using gun blue on cast iron

    Watching something on the DIY network got me to thinking (that can be bad). Would it work to use cold blueing on a cast iron surface such as a table saw or jointer? If it would it would look nice and give some protection.

    Thanks,
    Dave

    Good Idea, But...

    That is a good idea, but I don't think the cold bluing will hold up to what you put a table saw through.

    I've tried it on things like a crescent wrench and it did not last either.
    I wonder if that black stuff Eastwood sells might work better?
