I want one of these soooo much. I just don't have the time to invest in learning a new skill. I guess I have to just watch you masters of the trade for now.

I’ve made more progress after having done some house renovations.  Butt plate looks good...one small spot I’ll shim.  Heel plate is in and I’m happy.  I have a little more inletting to do on the lock plate, I think.  Currently it is sitting a little proud over the stock.  Thinking to bring it near flush.

Opinions?

I should drill the ramrod thimbles and tailpipe this weekend.
Making progress again.

Looking good, Steve. I've never built one but it still looks good.   ;D
Hope you and Angie are doing well.  :OK

Hi Pat!  Yeah, we are hanging in there and keeping well.  Glad to see your ALB thread going.  I hope the same for you all, also.

JW-If you see this, yeah, still at it! Saw your post on the other thread.  You been working on any projects?

I finally got the toe plate on my Haines rifle, something slipped and I got some major inletting gaps, I shimmed the biggest one, tried to shim a smaller one and the toe plate wouldn't fit in the inlet.

I hate gaps so I tried a new gap filler, my old dent removing steam iron. I put a piece of wet tee shirt over the toe plate and gave the wood and plate good steaming, now it looks like the toe plate grew into the wood, no gaps.
