Now what I’m mostly doing right now is I’m
actually scrubbing the spring itself. And I use this rod to stabilize the spring while
it?s in my hand. You can do it this way, you can fully take the spring off. I just like
to do it this way because it makes it a little bit stiffer, a little bit easier to hold onto.
Alright, so I’m about a little over half way. I’m going to spin it around and I’m just going
to keep working up these coils to make sure I’ve done what I wanted to do. Now what I’m
going to do, now that I’ve gotten that spring, I feel it for abrasive, I’m looking for anything,
and nothing is really coming off. So what I’m going to do now is I’m just going to slide
that spring off the guide rod. I have the guide rod in my hand. I’m going to do the
same thing with the guide rod, but instead I’m going to switch over to my brass brush
here. I’m going to do the same thing. I’m going to do a light scrub here. And you work
it in the same way. I think you can spin it in your hand or you can work all the down
one side and then keep spinning it. I just kind of spin it as I go and work my way down.
I try to go about halfway and soon as I get about halfway, I’ll go ahead and flip that
guide rod over in my hand which we’re about to that point and we’re there. So I’ll go
ahead and spin that guide rod then I’m just going to work from where I left off. I’m just
going to keep working up to the top. I’m just kind of rocking this rod back and forth here.
And we’re there. Now what I just did is basically we scrubbed up any kind of loose debris that
may have been here and we also massaged or kind of put some of this break free a little
bit better into the metal and we’re going to let this sit a little bit longer as we
move on to our next piece. And so the next piece we’re going to get to is we’re going
to do the barrel.
