In Response To: Re: Aging metal screws (James Schooley)

Thank you for the help. I bought bluing and ammonia and decided to try the cheapest first. I left the screws in the ammonia overnight, then buffed them lightly with steel wool. They don't stand out as new and are compatible with the nickel hinges.

I can get my money back on the bluing.

Thanks again.

Charlie
