When I stated that it is not an adhesive, I was refering to using it to glue two objects together. It works great for bedding because the surface of the stock is plenty rough to give the Marine Tex something to grab onto. But if you tried to glue the action into the stock with it, chances are it wouldn't hold very well to the action itself. As with the butt plates, the material stuck to the stock just fine but let go of the aluminum. There is no need to make undercuts for the bedding, it will adhere to the stock just fine. If there is one mistake the old time gunsmiths make when bedding one of our stocks, it's that they remove way more material than is necessary. All the bedding is used for is to make a uniform stress-free mating surface between the stock and the receiver. It doesn't add any strength or hardness so there is no reason to remove fiberglass and add bedding compound. Remove about .035 from the stock at the face of the recoil lug and skim coat of Marine Tex on the rest of the action is all you need.
Thanks for the welcome, I like to stay current with everything on the net, I just need to know what sites are out there so I can keep an eye on them. If you guys know of other sites I might be interested in, e-mail me with the address. I would appreciate it.
