You certainly do nice work. My bedding looks absolutely horrible in comparison.

Thanks Gerald!

We sold out to scale down a few years ago...just too much 'stuff' weighing the two of us down.. the bedroom works for the rest of the pilgrimage.. only drawback is the cleaning times .. windows open / door shut

Here are some of the JM treasures I have left, Been through a bunch, these are the best of the pick.. don't plan on buying any more ..just want to shoot and piddle with what I've got.


I really am a Blessed man

Iím thinking my Model 25 will be my first bedding project. When you actually torque down the action screw, what keeps it from squeezing out all the glass? If I just open up the action area with a wooden dowel and sandpaper, it seems like the action will set a little deeper in the stock if thereís nothing to keep it from squeezing everything out.

The barreled action is supported and centered while bedding by the rear tang and the tape wrapped around the barrel in the channel, this also sets elevation of the bedding compound.
Just electrical tape was wrapped to hold it in place till the epoxy dried, no drawing down with action screw...just kind of sinking in the mud till it bottoms out on the receivers tang and the tape that is multi layer thick thats in the bbl. channel.
The wood was relieved by ~1/16-1/8" under the receiver areas with a Dreamel rotory tool W/ small ball mill bit.

Hold on, here! It appears that you used JB Weld for bedding compound, but that stuff is a 24hr cure time. How on earth did you pull it apart after only 9 hrs, and have the JB hold it's position?
The times I've used it, it was still soft enough to slowly migrate away from where I wanted it. You go "hot" on the catalyst?

J-B Weld sets in 4-6 hours. A full cure is reached in 15-24 hours.

Notice the undercut at the BBl. lug to give a more stable seating area

Kiwi neutral shoe polish in the metal can.

You want to butter the take down screw stud real good

When you go together with the bbl. action for its bedding in the J.B or whatever compound you use, be sure to have clay in the bottom of the bbl. stud where the take down screw goes.
After the curing and ready to separate, I remove the clay insert and put the takedown screw back in a ways and with a small block of hardwood or whatever you chose rap this with a hammer to separate.
Heat from a heat gun or hairdryer and cold outside temps can help aid in the process of separation by contrasting
