    @Old School You did a much more professional job than I. I just set the knot the depth I wanted and applied marine grade silicone underneath working in the sides until a thin film covered the glue bumps bottom. In a short time it is firm enough not to drip out and I set on a paper towel for overnight. Yours again much more thought out and nicely done.

    FINALLY got to trying to get this 400 polished and maybe should have waited until I got a detail dremel tool rather than using my RotoZip with an attachment.................. It grabbed and scarred it in a few places. Good enough for now but may sand them later when I calm down from being mad at myself for rushing it........

    Not much to show so far, Dave. I was able to get the ferrule off with a strap wrench. Some persuasion necessary, but no damage to it. Haven’t started the polishing process yet, but did order a Oumo flattop boar for what I hope will be an authentic look.

    Dave,
    Had a few hours this evening to spend on the 400.
    Got the old knot out and cleaned up the inside of the ferrule a bit:

    Used 3 grits of buffing pads with Mother’s. Not bad for a first day, but I want a few more of the scratches out so I will progress through the pads again and keep going with the elbow grease:

    I can’t wait for the knot to get here...there has been some excellent advice on here for how to set it.

    The Oumo flattops finally arrived.
    I used a quarter wrapped in wax paper as a 'base' and built up a marine grade silicone nest for the knot. It seems to have held quite well:

    Thanks again, Dave!
