A picture of the components might be helpful Wink

... I've just completed installing this checkered steel casting buttplate on a Ballard stock that I've made for one of mine.
Regards,
Jeff P

Indeed! I like the clocked screws.

I guess I'm a "Peeker." I always like peeking around the background of other folk's photos to see what stories they tell.  Wink

Looks like a nice shop, and VERY nice work on the butplate fitting and stock work! Kudos...

Thanks guys... Not wanting to hijack the thread... was more wondering what level of work jhm was looking for? Doesn't take long to add a crescent bp... but the devil is in the details!
Been a labor of love making this Ballard stock doing all the tang inletting and then cutting the end curve for LOP and spotting in the buttplate with the widow's peak. That piece of english walnut is HARD!!! Fun stuff... but I still have a day job as GT mentioned.

BTW that checkered buttplate casting came from Track of the Wolf - one of my favorites! Lots to choose from there too...

Regards, Jeff P

Taking the time to clock the screws says allot about the quality of your work.

Guess I should have elaborated some. I am wanting to create a sporting model Peabody. I found a source for a blank that will be left a little long so I can fit a crescent plate. Your work looks great.

Got a copy off of Inter Library Loan and it is one on my List.
Professional Stockmaking by David L. Westbrook.  The pictures in it are worth the price alone.  Good chapter on inletting Butt Plates.  David
