zestyasfuck said: "Thinking of redoing a stock after some modifications. Any information on the availability of BLO or beeswax sealer in local stores in the Midwest. Can it be found at standard hardware stores?" I bought mine at a local Home Hardware for about $12 for the wax and I think the same for the BLO. You'll want to get a bottle of mineral spirits and super fine steel wool to take the existing finish off as well. And lots of nitrile gloves and rags!
I’ve redone stocks before but I’ve never used a beeswax sealer. Is it difficult, does it behave like a standard stain?
Nah, real easy to use. Put it on a clean rag, rub it into the stock really well, let it sit (bottle says at least 20 min but I did over night) and wipe off excess. Repeat half a dozen times for really nice results. Here’s the one I used: http://i.imgur.com/GSGPruV.jpg
Great picture of Sniper Corporal Pat McKinney, 31, from 6th Battalion The Royal Regiment of Scotland, discovers that his sniper suit is somewhat irresistible to the Regimental Mascot, Shetland Pony, Cruachan 4th. Pat and Cruachan were in Glasgow’s George Square as part of Scotland’s biggest recruitment event for the Army Reserve.
Come home to find this note.
So we decided to just go ahead and build a whole new, heavier frame. First two are the tilt lock mechanism and then of course the whole thing in all its glory.
Next step is to get the decking on.
🔹13 feet of 7-strand trailer wire
🔹2x 25 amp fuses
🔹1x male trailer plug
🔹1x female trailer plug
🔹6x wire eyes
🔹something to get the smell of burning plastic out of my clothes and hair
