    Not sure if it ll affect the wooden grips,,someone will tell us Bunker is still on hold,sorry about thatWas going to pick up the other car today,but cancelled it as its snowing too much for me to want to driveBut as soon as I have fixed the car it will be expedition to find out what this bunker stuff really is.)

    Not going to say anything definitive re. the wooden grips but I really doubt they'd be affected in any way -- the only thing that might happen, I suppose, is that the electrolysis might eat away too much of the grip screws (depending on level of corrosion) and thereby allowing the grips to be lifted off of the handle... I guess it's an off chance depending on how corroded this relic is --

    I wouldn't worry too much though, electrolysis, at least by way of means such as I and inka here have used, is a relatively gentle procedure.

    Just note that this is only my opinion, I do not actually KNOW from experience if this process does not affect the wood in any way -- I'd look further into it to make sure nothing bad happens to your relic. If you're able to remove the handles I guess it'd be the best, just to make sure. I actually found some differing opinons re. wood and electrolysis looking around just now...

    Alternatively you could look into citric acid, which is indeed very gentle and also used in food.

    I think the output was 10 v on mine.I use a cell phone charger
    I asked because at times a car charger can be a little too aggressive and it leaves the relics with a black finish. It can be removed of course. Also i heard lower voltage should be better. We get off topic but a little chit for chat is OK while we wait for snow to clear, i hope

    It didnt affect the wood on my bayo atleast, and there wasnt much wood left on it to talk about. But was just as when I put it in.

    The Eau de Cologne bottle is an interesting find. The German Navy during World War II issued vast amounts of Glockengasse 4711 perfume to the submariners of the U-Boat fleet. As there were limited facilities and few opportunities for bathing, the scent was to be used in an attempt to improve the odour aboard the vessel. Crew members typically didn't use much of it and would take home bottles as presents for mothers, wives, or girlfriends. It was also apparently the favoured cologne of U.S. President John F. Kennedy according to one of his mistresses, a certain Mimi Alford.

    Very nice inka. These horse shoes look like winter shoes, but without the ice cleats. They should be mounted in the thread holes
