I was referring to complete pillar bedding, pillars and action bedding.
You generally get what you pay for.
Most gunsmiths or stock builders use what they feel is the best product for bedding, you should allow the person you trust to do the work pick the material he recommends.

Re: Cost of Pillar and Glass Bedding

Can someone point me to who on this forum does that kind of work? Any chance someone is from Michigan?

Thanks

Tom

So was I Here is how I get the cost. Pillars, bedding epoxy, and misc. supplies = $50.00. Actual working time 2 hrs. Shop rate $35.00/hr = $70.00. Total cost
$120.00. I suppose if someone charges more per hour than I do it will cost more but where I live this an honest rate to charge.
