Simichrome by Happich is a great for rmoving tarnish off brass , copper, sterling...etc., It does not scratch...lots of spl brass cleaners do btw. It leaves a protectctive finish.( many do not) Been using since I was a kid, I used to say 35 yrs ...oh lets just say I've been around this stuff most of my 48 yrs. IMO/IME bunch better than Flitz, and I've tested Flitz.

Cheat...visit a Jewelry store, have them polished and gold plated, this will eventually wear off of course . Gold plating will keep "yellow". Now if you don't mind "white" have Rhodium plate, rhodium is a form of platinum ,is harder and will resist wearing off as quick, so you have nickel looking case, that changes the personality of the Earrings.

[ BTW when a person has a yellow shank and white prongs, they rhodium the prongs to bring out contrast, enhance the reflective qualities of the dia, and the white [gold or plat] prongs stay whiter and brighter longer. White gold and plat rings they rhodium the whole pc]

Me, I'd save the monies and buy the simichrome...keeps from getting into the ammo piggy bank, and you will use the simichrome for door knobs, brass plates, and gun stuff.

Oh I prefer this Simichrome to all of the fancy name brand silver polish,copper polish, because thought it doesn't scratch, it cleans best, and leaves protection. Also at ~ 6 a tube from the hardware store a "little" goes a long , long way. Just one of those old products that still does it's job better than it's supposed to.

Betty-right?

More imprtantly Volk- how did you manage to acquire these earrings? And I suppose you have the photographs to prove it? As to which THR member wears these earrings-that would be no one at this particular time.

sm
December 16, 2003, 03:16 PM
Pic only shows 1/2 pair...THR member could still have been [be]wearing the other 1/2 pair.
Guessing she took it off to use the phone, especially the one ear pc that people use, ladies still like to remove for phone use.

[ #1 reason earrings get lost are left in bathroom and brushed into toliet/down sink, #2 is taken off for phones and 'walk off" ]

Or ...
The THR member who wears said earings could make a simple wooden case holder to allow quick drilling of new dangly bits, and change the spent shell every month or so. Also might want to change the way it is held to the rest of the earing to save time rewiring it.

That would let her switch to nickled cases when she felt like it too.

Case jig should headspace on the case mouth so that .22WMR can be used as well.

My guess? SheSlinger.

I don't recall seeing Tamara with Earrings in any of Oleg's pics,besides Tamara strikes me as wearing stud type instead of dangling earrings. ( no offense, Tamara, just see you as wearing 1 ct. TW 4 prong diamond studs -classic but elegant), the thought crossed my mind. tho'.

Kaylee is a good guess. I dunno, trying to think of whom all is in TN . Unless a THR member came to visit . I doubt someone would send Oleg a pic, unless Oleg did his magic with a pic sent to him...long shot of the day...

Picture was taken with an Olympus 5050 digicam that belongs to the owner of the earrings. That person is not from Nashville, is a member of THR and has been seen in at least some publications (not mine) with a S&W36 revolver and a few other such items.

To keep the brass from tarnishing, I would clean it and spray it with clear lacquer.

Gus!

She borrowed her daddy's ( Perfessr) model 36, ( though she wanted the Glock) until she bought her own SP101.

Gotta be.

--only problem with the laquer, when it starts o wear it's ugly and hard to remove. Simichrome all the way on this folks.

Oh be careful with any "silver dip" type cleaners, besides the fact stink like rotten eggs, may not be good for the tourquoise...main deal is to the soulution gets inside the hollow parts, big time skin irritant, and risining doesn't seem to always get rid of smell. That and the fact the "dip" is real pricey and really does not work...it can "frost" brass, copper ,nickel...etc.

Ammonia ( I used to buy the 28 % stuff) anyway ammonia cleans, remove greases,oils but the big deal is it RINSES. Not for use on pearls, coral, imiitation stones ( glued in or stones glued togetherin mfg) . Mild solution of ammonia and water is all hte stuff you buy is, they just add a bit of soap, and smell good fragrance.

Simple green works as a substitute. Toothpaste ruined more stones when that "tip" was printed --way to go Heloise. Toothpaste is abrasive and goodbye pearls, opals, coral, tourquoise...scratches metal too.

Don't use lacquer.

Use....

Johnson's Paste Wax, or any other high quality auto wax high in carnuba (don't worry, Grammaw, that's not a nasty word).

Renew as often as necessary to keep the shine.

some gals wear a wedding band type ring to keep from getting hit on.:p

I don't blame them, so it is not unusal for an engaged lady to wear a band at school. For a sales Rep or similar that calls on customers to wear a band, just so the hitting and all that hassle never gets started. :p True, very true.

Mike,
If you wanted to avoid having vegans talk to you, you might carry a bloody steak. Carrying the same steak to the Meat Lovers of America cookout would be counterproductive if the intent was to keep people away.

So how the heck is carrying a High Power around THR going to keep her from getting hit on?

I think it is just used to weed out the undesirable mates.

Don't know her personally, but from what I've read by (and about) her on various boards, I think she'd prefer a larger caliber. Like maybe the .700 CrazyBastardMagnumButtStomper +P+. :what:

Curmudgeonly as charged, although according to some just downright nasty. I do try hard.

Bigoted about handguns, though?

Here's a shocking fact for everyone...

I'm pretty sure that at this moment I own more semi-automatics than I do revolvers.

"Seriously? More autos than revos?"

I think so.

I have to do a serious inventory, but I've bought a bunch of semi-autos in the last few months, but not a lot of revolvers.

Doesn't affect the way I feel about revolvers, though.

Semi-autos are tools. Fun tools, but tools.

Revolvers, on the other hand, are much, much more.
