Over the weekend I gathered up the latest restorations and did a little test firing. I put the Enders Royal Western in the homemade sled and it fired without issue. Like most test firings, it is rather uneventful (by design and how it should be). Here is a video of that test firing.
While I have confidence in the baking lacquer finish, the possibility exists that that finish could be compromised. If that were to happen and the steel beneath it would be shiny silver colored and be quite noticeable, that can be avoided by blackening the steel prior to applying the baking lacquer.
