    Nice Home Made Stock Vise for Repairs

    So often Carbine stocks need wood repaired or replaced around the recoil plate. This rig seems perfect. After making the cuts for the patch wood.
    Put a junk recoil plate that your not worried about scratching on the stock.
    Guy doesn't say how he made the first 2 cuts to receive the 2 wood patches, but they sure appear to be squared off.
    Anyway worth watching IMO, Looking forward to opinions and suggestions.

    He said early in the vid that he had removed the butt to make the cuts then re assembled it with break out where he was going to acraglass he probably has a milling machine not shown in his workshop somewhere Charlie

    Scotty did a nice job on that stock. I like the jig he made for holding it in the vice. I can see one in my future. this is a similar patch I did in curly maple for a Kentucky rifle. This one was done by hand.

    Best Regards.....Frank

    I always wonder when I see something like the wonderful film "Jeremiah Johnson" as he's swinging for the fences with a $100 Hawken and the stock stays in one piece. If you used the barrel end it would knock the guy senseless, maybe even kill him. I know you can kill a man easily with an M14icon buttstroke to the head, but it was designed to be a deadly weapon as a club. These elegant muzzle loaders were fragile in my opinion.

    That's a nice Checkering, Repair and Crafting vice. I have one but I don't use it for checkering. I prefer to sit and work off the edge of my bench with a piece of carpet or sandbags as padding/holder. If I have to hold something that's where the 6" vice with felt padding comes into play.
    This rig would be invaluable if your carving a stock from a blank, no doubt.

    Not as elaborate as the one in the video but I have used this to do some stock work. There is a piece of pipe for the top end that is lined with carpet that will fit over the nose of the stock. Tighten the all thread into the rear of the stock and tighten wing nuts.
    Another way is to use large connecting rods (small block Chevy) with the big end fitted to a piece of pipe the right size acting as a clamp and then the small end of the rod rigged with a wooden plate to match the butt-stock and then the other small end with a cupped shape fitting fashioned to fit the nose of the stock.

    Adjust the connecting rods on the pipe and clamp where you need them (you can get an angle) for working right or left and tighten your rigging through the small end of the rod to hold your piece. Clamp the pipe in a radial bench vise. To a bench in the middle of the floor if you have the space.
