Josh Smith: @ the shop. On intermittently. Jun 1, 2017 23:09:12 GMT -5
Josh Smith: Just a thought: It seems that a properly-fitted Mosin magazine acts as an awesome lock washer for the action screws. Jun 1, 2017 23:13:32 GMT -5
dan: Anyone have information for a good riflesmith? One that is Mosin capable. Jun 2, 2017 7:58:56 GMT -5
mcpapa: I need some advice on stock repair. Mine has the stock cracked on the top side opposite the bolt. It's very thin there. Will epoxy work or do I need to drill a small hole and put a brass pin in it? Couldn't figure out how to make a new thread. Jun 2, 2017 8:42:30 GMT -5
Josh Smith: mcpapa, I answered your post. I'm hoping others chime in as well. Jun 2, 2017 17:13:59 GMT -5
reed: How long is the crack in your stock and does it go all the way through the stock? Jun 5, 2017 17:55:32 GMT -5
reed: Oh, if your stock is oil soaked even epoxy will not help for long. I have seen in the last 20 years many of the 91/30 stocks from the Ukraine storage sites soaked with oil/cosmo., that could no longer be used. The stocks were just too soft. Jun 5, 2017 18:10:06 GMT -5
reed: Even after full epoxy bedding the wood would compress and crack. I had one customer that really wanted his stocks "saved". I ended up doing a five step epoxy bedding job on his three stocks. So that he could shoot his 2 PU 91/30's and M-27. Jun 5, 2017 18:20:18 GMT -5
reed: Unless I have to re-barrel a 91/30; I like the JMECK scope mounts for the 91/30's. These mounts to not need holes drilled into the metal. I really like that. Jun 5, 2017 18:28:59 GMT -5
squidder: Is there a way to post pictures? I am doing an experiment on staining some scrap pieces of wood with a couple of known common stains (Pine Tar, Boiled Linseed Oil, Flaming the grain and Boiled Linseed Oil, and Casey's Walnut Stain. Nov 26, 2018 12:45:19 GMT -5
squidder: I use them over a period of three days, with a an initial coat for piece one, 2 coats over 2 days (24 hours between coats), and a third day (same process 24 hours between coats). The pine tar coats get warmed up to aid in absorption. Nov 26, 2018 12:47:39 GMT -5
squidder: The Flamed pieces get flamed on day one and liberal coat of BLO post flaming, and subsequent coats every 24 hours there after. The purpose is to see how well a stain works, what results can be expected in how much time. Nov 26, 2018 12:49:25 GMT -5
squidder: Wood used was scrap pieces of untreated scraps of Poplar, and Pine (as this is what I had laying around. As time permits I hope to expand to some other woods. Nov 26, 2018 12:50:27 GMT -5
