    I Saved a Japanese Chiyogami

    After I had a wreck due to "Operator Error" with this blank from Branden (Penl8the).
    Repaired with Med CA, turned, sanded 400x, buffed with super fine steel wool and polished with Huts Ultra Gloss.
    Installed on a Titanium Gold/Black Titanium Elegant Beauty.

    Innovation is the process that renews something that already exists and not, as is commonly assumed, the introduction of something new.

    One thing that separates the skilled from the unskilled is how well they fix mistakes and accidents.

    I'd say you definitely showed your skill on this one, Les.
