Stock Doc Question

Discussion in 'The Powder Keg' started by Devil Dog, Aug 24, 2002.

  1. Rick:
    I have seen pics of your repair work on a M1 GAW stock. I have a similar task (not as bad) on a Mauser stock. Which glue would be best Grilla Glue or Epoxy. I intend to reinforce with epoxy on the inside but what is best for the actual wood joint?
    Thanks,
    Gary

    Clean the joint out with Denatured alcohol and use Gorilla Glue as it is a polyurethane and not much can effect it and break it down. You wet the crack and slip it in with a piece of paper on its side. This ensures glue gets deep in the crack but wedge it opened slightly then slip glue in. Wait 5 minutes to let glue expand a bit then clamp it down for a few hours. I wait atleast 24 to let glue harden properly and even 48 as I noticed the excess glue is tougher to remove then. Let me know if you need any other help. Rick B
