I don't know if this was mentioned, but there are items called a dowel centers.
They Come in pairs of different sizes. You drill a hole in one piece of the wood and insert the centers. The other side of it has a point, so you would aligen the two pieced of wood together, than tap the undrilled piece against the drilled one. This leaves a mark on the undrilled piece exactly where it should be drilled.

Hi Guys,

I'm new to this site but have used a lot of adhesives over the years. When joining wood I like to use a slow cure epoxy like WEST System. I've been using WEST epoxy for probably 20 years on boat repairs, building R/C airplanes and full size aircraft repiars/ construction. It gives plenty of time to penetrate into the wood and also cures hard. Cure times run 6 to 24 hours but the wait is worth it because this stuff is strong. It has little color of its own and darkens as it ages. The manufacturer, Gougeon Bros, says the change in color and age don't affect the qualities of their epoxies. They offer various hardners to match your climate or season in slower and faster varieties. You can add milled glass fibers to thicken it, too. I will use WEST with milled glass fibers on my next glass bedding job. I don't stand to make a penny off of this product; just wanted to let you know about it as I've been a satisfied customer for many years.

Define "duffelcut" ???
Scroll down about 11 or so topics to the sticky entitled "All new k98 collectors, start here! STICKY". There are several links to that discussion.

Usually the stock is cut where the rear barrel band is.That way the dis-assembled rifle would fit in a duffle bag so a soldier could take it home.Depending how it was done it should be fairly easy to repair and the cut would be hidden under the band.

That's pretty scary but does this apply to any RC K98ks?

Well, I am not sure what you mean by scary....but many collectors see a duffle cut as somewhat proof that it is actually a bringback, but that is dangerous, as you might get a bunch of humpers doing duffle cuts and barking "Look its a bringback!!"

No RC's would have come into the country "duffle cut".....if you see an RC that is duffle cut, I'd run away, someone is up to something....

OK I see. I was saying it is scary, because it looks like bringbacks were ruined when cut like that. I just purchased a RC, so I am glad now that it isn't hacked up. :cool:

New rifle, 15 rounds cold, no sighting. First time shooting. Yugo '78 ammo, 100 yards, seated, no rest save repro. sling. My fresh duffel cut repair failed on the 15th round. Score 125 of 150.

Plymouth,
Did you follow the method on the dufflecut thread? It looks close, but the tubing and threads are a good bit shorter into the wood and it doesn't look like there is any epoxy on the threads. Did you use Devcon plastic steel? BTW, I copied this to the dufflecut repair thread for discussion.
Thanks,
HB

I wish this was a sticky and while I'm wishing I wish there was a recoil lug setback repair thread.
