Have you taken the bottle for a ride on the lathe with some emery cloth, polished it, then pressed it? How do they look? Is it superficial to even ask that?
I bet it would look really cool.....
The chuck of my jeweler's lathe won't hold it. I have a WBS that is raw aluminum and it has a tendency to oxidise and take fingerprints easily.

If I could, I would and then coat it with a spray can of clear polyurethane.

Cobalt Blue, nice color!!!! I like it.

Marketing concept for any item:

Paint the item one of three colors Flat Black, Flat Olive Drab, or Flat Coyote Brown.

Stick the word Tactical in front of the items name.

People will buy the item whether they know what it does or not or whether they need the item or not.

The color will make it prone to being lost or camoflauged in its surroundings where the item was last placed.

The item will then need to be repurchased! :mrgreen:

It was 8 degrees in my green house this morning, an ideal temperature to test the stoves. I used denatured alcohol and was easy to see the flames come out the jets when the stoves began to bloom. One ounce of fuel per stove.

The "Cobalt" bloomed in 1 min and 30 seconds.

The WBS bloomed in 2 min and 45 seconds.

I think I lost all my marbles a long time ago. It's all right though, to maintain my tactical edge I replaced them with rocks. :mrgreen:

I remember at one time spray painting all my tools flourecent orange. Every time you set something down it seems to disapear or tactically camoflauge itself into it's suroundings, absolutely amazing and totally frustrating at the same time. :mrgreen:

Just kidding about the orange.

Here is what the die looks like that forms the stove body.
