Default Split wood...

Stripped with Oven Cleaner, then to car wash to get jam out of surfaces to join.

Crack:



Lashed, ready for superglue (it dries too quickly to put it in first; countin' on cap action to wick it in) :

2 options here for filling in missing wood: 1) If little is missing, sanding will allow collected sawdust - collected onto paper, to be put in, then set with superglue.

2) (as I'll do) Use woodcarver's small V-Chisel to pull slivers from inside barrel channel, and glue into place...

I fixed some large cracks in shotgun stocks using Garilla Glue. After cleaning up can barely see the fix. Saw it done on Midway tips. Good luck.

Need all the luck I can get here; Mauser action doesn't necessarily mean drop-in...

Floorplate length is short. Too bad.



And had to do some chiseling - receiver / chamber ring:



AND ... K98 bolt has 90* arm. Ugh..................



Now, back to missing wood at crack in barrel channel...

Trigger well had to opened up, and a recess for safety carved out. (isn't K98 safety in back of bolt?)

Dry fit hardware is a go.

Now some sanding..................... (thanks again to Marty / goofycat for the free woodwork)

Back to the split / missing wood.

You start to wonder - is this too much time on your hands? No; good practice at worst, so, ...

Clean sawdust, a new single-edge. Sawdust from zipping the stock fore-end off, wood slivers from inside barrel channel.



Slivers of wood. Twist them to break up fiber; makes them easier to press in, AND to follow around contours, and out-of-grain turns.

First piece started. With square ends on slivers, I put end of sliver in middle of 'hole'. Middle of sliver pressed in TINY bit of Superglue - you don't want sliver ends glued out of hole, and cap action will to it:



One end of first piece. Hold in place while drying.



Other end of first sliver rolled around to upper surface, held. Second sliver end abuts first piece.

Remember that heat from fingers will make more Superglue come out.

End of first sliver:



End of second sliver (very tip of first piece hadn't been glued at this point):



1,000 grit should take gloss off glue, but a few piece can go in here.

So far. Sawdust is a last resort, after a few more strands.......

Big Red; pics still too big? Thought I'd re-sized to normal here, and got a couple more to link up... What's optimal width?
