Chad,

You should make a DVD, detailing your process, step by step, from start to finish!! Including prepping, taping, pillar making, compound mixing, etc.
I Bedded a rifle once, but I would like to learn how to get that "professional look"!

You do Excellent Work!

Russ

Re: Beddin Pillar Makin Day. . .

Russ, I'm flattered but I'm afraid it wouldn't work for most folks. I've overenginidioted this process so much that unless a guy has access to some pretty sophisticated equipment and software it'd be virtually impossible to replicate the process.

Now that isn't saying a person can't achieve exceptional results with less, just means that if I were to try and teach this process I'd fail miserably at it cause it's the only way I know how to do it. I won't touch a stock if it has already been inletted by someone else. Just won't work for how I do it.

Thanks for the kind words guys.

Chad

Me too and I'm about 2K miles behind eddybo

If I sentcha my 3 jaw chuck could you tru it up? I've gone from he as delivered 2 thou to 20 thou in only 4 attempts. I'll get it though but by then the chuck will only be good for 2" stock.

Makin' chips and grindin' is as addictive as shooting bug holes.......
