No biggie, I've been here before. Tomorrow you'll never be able to tell. That laminated wood is harder than a woodpecker's bill! The mill-lathe made short work of grooving slots in the forend. So easy the buttstock make a monkey out of me, catching me off guard. Paddle pits, ha! Forrester bits, no way. Steel drill bits, wallowing and grabby. It walked over into the screw hole for the buttplate. So the hardwood dowel and epoxy hole fixer trick.
