That's what I've read is a good solution to soften old, hard hammers. Needling
is still required afterwards.

Any tips on how to apply the solution? With a brush? How much?

I think someone mentioned not putting too much on the striking point....

Hmmmm. It seems his poster wasn't well received on the Google forum.

Where do these no-name people come from?

Oh, it's our old friend with no name that posts here. 'Interesting.

Boy, they sure sniffed him out quickly on the google group. Looks like he's burned quite a few bridges. Was it Gandhi that said "what goes around comes around."

Yea, they told him to get a mentor, that he was headed for disaster, and basically to stop bothering them.

'Good advice!
