Winchester 1897 shotgun stock repair and refinish
Brand new channel!!
Excellent job, subbed.
I built a .50 muzzle loader and finished the stock with eight coats of hand rubbed boiled linseed oil. I was told (and did) to rub the oil hard and fast to generate heat to cure the finish, 12 hours between coats. That was over 30 years ago, and no dents or scratches.
Why not use a belt sander to remove all the excess of that walnut block instead of filing way forever on it? Though I must commend you on your endlessly-tedious sanding technique!
Wow, So impressed New Subscriber! I just did my Grandfather's Model 12, I was very surprised how nice it came out. I did what you described,and the shotgun looks naturally dated to that time-frame, so rewarding as a weekend hobby. I will be doing more as my confidence increases.What kind of 2-part glue is in your video? I also have a very old rifle, with much detailed checking on the stock and fore-grip, how would a gun get into those very very small detailed checkering to prepare for refinishing. Any links or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Great work!
What kind of epoxy did you use?
That trick with placing tape on the C-clamps is great! I wish I knew that 20 years ago.
You Sir, are a MASTER SMITH…Not an amateur…Chuck in Michigan
Great jobb! Restore old guns its preserve the history.🙂
I've never used Velvit oil or the "mud rub" technique. Looks like I'll have to try it!!.
Not only did I learn a lot, your video production was outstanding!! Professional level video, sound quality, and lighting!! You mentioned …”using an iron..” to repair some small nicks and depressed areas. Could you explain and can the technique be used on stocks with a gloss finish? Thanks. I’m subscribing!
well done sir . its a die ing art
LMAO, the guy who's speaking is about 16 years old and the guy doing the work is 50+ LMAO!
Wow how you know all this
What type of oil are used?
The word you are looking for is slurry not mud. Get rid of the epoxy it won’t expand and contract with the wood. Your heart is in the right place just do a little studying and you will be fine.
Very enjoyable watching a craftsman do his magic to restore a wooden stock.
I'm impressed, really nice work.
Very good job. Thanks
Watching this finally gave me the push to fix my grandma's old 410 that I inherited. Also noticed you watching VetRanch 👍
Looks like you don't believe in decreasing the wood before you apply the glue.
Liked & subscribed. Amazing job, thanks for sharing!
Nice video! I subbed you, would you sub back?
