I use powdered metals with turning. Always use 50/50 mix of shellac and alcohol to seal the wood before adding the powder metal. Then sand it off smooth. The shellac mix is thin and sands away. Never had a problem with the brass as long as I seal the wood first. Have you thought of using powdered metal vs the solid bar for the inlay?
