    Inspection of the stock blank showed a slight twist along the length at the show line. Not a problem. I indexed the stock off the imaginary vertical line of the buttstock and took a .03" skim pass off the top to get everything square. Makes life much easier for later operations.

    Here we are wizzing away with a monster 1.25 3 flute cutter.

    Grrrrrrr....

    One thing about CNC's. They are pigs! A dab of way oil dribbled on the damn stock. No biggy as i'll just whip up some acetone/baking soda to draw it out, but it's annoying as hell to have to do extra work!

    It may be time for a CNC router. . .

    No, but I thought about it and figured I should at least ask her before hand, so I decided to pull it. I'll pick my battles. . .

    A quick post inspection shows that I'm parallel with the stock showline to within .0015". The action sits "a smidge" higher up by the recoil lug. Not bad for a dumb farm kid.
