    Question for you stock makers out there. How do you cut the combs of the stock in a perfect line and form? Do you use a jig, or form of some sort to get the cut right? Maybe a programmable machine? Is it cut freehand, requiring the artful touch as to the other aspects of the trade, on a band saw? Thanks, Jon

    Also, there was a bracket that someone had shown on a post, for holding a stock when cutting the stock off on a table saw. It was two frames with wing nuts to clamp the two frames together. It was posted quite some time ago. If that person reads this, or if someone knows of that post, could you post a picture of that bracket again? Thanks again, Jon

    The stock is held in a jig to make sure the stock is kept square, but the cut is made freehand. Put some masking tape on the stock, scribe a line w/ a pencil, and follow the line as closely as possible.

    I too use a 2x4 srewed to the stock and another one attached thru the bolt hole to the front. One thing to WATCH some guns are different and have steel in the stock, make sure your cut does not hit that part or cut into the hole where the bolt goes thru.
