Simple router guide for inletting a stock
« on: July 01, 2016, 12:02:30 PM »
   Here is a router guide I made from three scrap boards.  I used clamps to tighten up the stock and wood wedges under and on each side to position it in the guide. Once it is secure and even with the top of the guide, it was easy to route a compression tube channel with a core box bit.  The side boards are screwed in from the bottom and can be moved as needed.   Your router has to have an edge guide to follow the side board.  Just keep everything square and it works great.  I used a forstner bit to cut the trigger slot.   You can find shaped but not inlet stocks on the internet.

Hey Van,
Good Work!  Nothing beats using your noggin to solve the problem at hand ;)

I've spent so much time trying to dress up my OEM Beech stocks, that I'm going to start making my own from blanks of Walnut or Maple.
Your example is a good one to follow -> Go for it 8)
I bought a HF Shaper last year and have yet to use it much.  The bits maybe pricey, but the whole process will be very satisfying :D.
I've got the Forstner bit set and Drill Press for the job.  I May sell a few guns and buy a Mill.

  Thanks guys, that set up cost nothing as I had the boards, router and clamps.  I like to keep it simple as I can.  I found a web site, Calico Hardwoods, Has great prices for fancy woods and pre-carved, slightly imperfect, fancy walnut gun stocks that are not inlet for actions.  I got 2 and could not believe the quality of the wood. They were Weatherby rifle seconds but only need a little sealing of the fancy figure in the wood.  I used thick super glue to fill the tiny cracks in the figure and they disappear.  $25 to $41 for these.   Bottom stock was the $25.

WOW :o
Hot "dang" that's a great price for a second that looks that good. And you'r right, filling in cracks is pretty easy. Fantastic find!

    I see where the Photobucket pictures are gone since its not a free site anymore.  I will try to show the router jig and stocks I inlet again.     The completed rifle is a pumper I made using a walnut stock blank and Crosman 2200 pump tube with 2260 barrel and trigger package. Click on the pictures and they should enlarge. Looks like I got them back on the original post.
