Default Re: Polished drone bores?

I visited the Sinclair shop in ‘02..had a pleasant chat with Alistair for a while ...who showed me his operation. When I espied a small pile of ABW ‘end cuts’ off eg stocks,drones etc ..he said it was a trash pile to be burned and sure...help yerself. I took one piece..not combed or beaded..maybe an end cut off a bass section..about 2 “ long . The bore was as smooth and shiny as a shotgun barrel bore. I’ve seen a few other maker new bores..not any as well drilled /finished I thought. Getting near 20 yrs later I still have it and sand ABW dust off it to mix in with repair glue.
