carving/wood buring

Post by Dasho101 » Tue Feb 14, 2012 8:29 am

On the 10th i ordered a a mosen nagant rifle from aim surplus. (spelling mite be wrong). I have a C&R license so I'm waiting for it to come to my door. My question is... I have name and lil saying i wanna carve/burn in to the stock, too those of you who have done both. What is easier to do for some one whos writing hand is not all that steady (i hurt my arm way back when and lost some sense of touch)?

Pay someone else to do it.

If you do have feeling issues in your hand, and you're worried about the outcome of the work, pay someone else to do it. I'm sure the local trophy shop wouldn't mind, just remove the action and barrel, hanging them only a bare stock.

I'm feeling ya. How's about a wrist brace? It would remove dexterity, but it would help keep your hand steady. Then it would just be patience to make it right. Stencil what you want, cut inside the lines. I would count out a Dremel with your hand the way it is and stick with hand tools. Local hobby shop should have wood engraving kits. Patience is your friend.

wood burning is a lot easier, with either one practice on some wood of similar species/grain mosins were birch i believe, and dont buy cheap tools.
zombies are notoriously bad drivers

'nuther idea - find a trophy shop and have them laser engrave it. I've got a muzzleloader going to a friend as a present getting the stock laser engraved with a graphic I pulled off the web.

The local laser engraving shop did this for me on a rifle I had done for a giveaway, charged me 20 bucks...

you might check in your area, a lot of places have started doing the wood laser engraved plaques and such...
