    Default Stock finishing

    Hiya

    Been reading up some more on finishing rifle stocks, however I can't find out more about checkering / chequering?

    Most of the specialists custom stock site I read, finish the stock completely, then only cut the checkering.

    Now do they leave the checkering unsealed / un protected? Or do they apply some kind of laquering / sealer on afterwards and forget to mention this in their steps?
    Maybe checkering should be left unsealed and thus rough to act better as a gripping aid?

    I've compiled a refinishing instruction sheet/amarture manual for myself, based on reading up on many internet stock re-finishing sites. It does say something about how to handle the checkering during stock refinishing. I'm not sure if that's what you're looking for but I could send you a copy by PM if you want.

    Hey Zulu

    Yeah please ta - if you could send to the usual email I'd be grateful.

    I have actually finished my stock though - got rid of the ding and added a few self thought improvements.
    I'll post a picture if any wants a look-see.

    Chequering is done after sanding is finished, or you will sand all the diamonds off again. Then the whole stock is "oiled".
