I'm looking for a bluing pan or something I could put brass shavings into.
I’m in the UK and generally look on Cousins site for speedy delivery.

I can’t see a bluing pan but there are several items that could possibly do the job.

Pouring dish, made of aluminium:

Copper bowl:

Crucible with wooden handle:

Ingot mould:

What do you suggest? I don’t have the tools to make my own so I’m looking for something ready made.

I always used an old penny to blue screws I found I got good results then quenched them in oil, by doing that they give of a nice shine, then I put them through an old watch cleaning machine. 

The art of bluing is to make sure all parts blued are the same colour blue. It's harder than you think. It took me a few goes before I got it right.
