    Stock Doc, I'm refinishing two G1 stocks. I boiled both ,1 came out clean the other must have some verinish on it and is still has the finish on it. Should I use a stripper on it or try sanding it off. Thanks for any help.

    I would use BIX stripper in the White/Red can because it can be wiped off and cleaned with water. The heavy duty White/Blue can needs Trisodium Phosphate to neutralize it. It may take a few stripping's but is easier on the wood. Are there markings on the wood? Also sanding will not release the varnish out of the pores unless you really sand and you honestly dont want to do that. Let me know if there's any other help you need. Rick B

    The stock is looking good :boiled it to get the oils and stuff out
    waiting to sand out the rough parts.
    Thanks Paul I
     
  6. If you boil the stock does that make it warp?

    Yes it can and will swell out the hand guards. I don't recomend boiling but a soaking for short periods is fine. Rick B

    I just bought an new unfinished walnut stock. 30 bucks seemed like a good price. Do you just rub boiled linen seed oil in it? No staining? Thanks

    I stain with Chestnut Ridge stain or you can get a brown alcohol base stain as it is easy to work with and can be put on after oil dries then oiled again. I take a small piece of a rag and dip it in Boiled linseed oil, rub all over the stock and wait 30 minutes. I then take a cotton clothe and rub as much of the oil off as I can and let set up over night. Try to hang it so it dries properly. Repeat as many times as needed until desired look is achieved. DO NOT LEAVE RAGS LYING AROUND they will self combust. I hang them outside or put in a bucket of water when doing allot. When left lying around and balled up they will ignite I know from experience and almost had a fire in my home. I was lucky by happening to go in the shop for a last minute thought and they poofed up on me after I just walked in. Hope this helps. Rick B

    Wow, Just one coat of LS oil is amazing. That looks so nice, I may just use a few more coats of oil, with steel wool inbetween. Thanks
