    Hey Phil! I recently got done applying teak oil to a solid teak stock. But after taking out on a test dive, I noticed a hairline crack coming through where I screwed in the front loop guide. The crack is about 3 - 1/2 inches long running through the screw holes of the front loop guide. I initially applied your 2 part epoxy to try and get much of it back into the screw holes and over the crack. At this point I'm a little hesitant of leaving the gun with an oil finish and am leaning towards doing it with your 2 part epoxy with a matte finish. My question is...Do I sand off most of the oil finish..Or can I still apply the epoxy over the stock with it oiled up? I appreciate any help. Thank you for your time.

    Heh, I have to tell you, your name, in the finnish language:
    Herra = Sir
    ...nen = Small
    So thats smallSir and it a common surname in Finland? Got your roots here?

    Phil, I was wondering if you could sell me a large volume of your clarified epoxy. I've been using this stuff for my speargun builds and realized how great it is for all my woodworking projects (I mix it with powdered metals and shell for sculpture/furniture).

    Let me know if you would be willing to sell a large volume, how much it would cost, and how to pay. I live in LA (90025 zip). I've bought about 6 small quantities from Neptonics and its just not that efficient.

    Thanks,
    John Akerblom

    hey phil. quick question. i have a 73" SSPC 6 band 3/8" shaft. Could I use a 11/32" shaft in the 3/8 enclosed track with 4 bands. Or should I buy another UHMW track in the same size. Sent this question the other day but it didnt show as sent. Sorry if it came through twice.

    zebra wood is very unstable , it really likes to twist and warp . if you use it for the entire gun use very thin lams (1/4" or thinner) zebra is best used as a outside lam for looks

    Phil, I hope you're doing well. I just picked up a bunch of Zebrawood for a good deal. Have you ever built a gun completely out of the stuff? I'm thinking about doing it and just wanted to get your thoughts and any pointers on Zebrawood since I've never used it before. Thanks in advance for any info!

    Thanks a lot for the offer. I guess guy must have heard about the shit storm and contacted my buddy and shipped out his gun fixed. I didn't realize what that post was going to turn into. I deleted it. Thanks anyway -Joe

    Hey phil, I wanted to touch up one of my guns. Is it o.k. to spot fix the gun by lightly sanding the area and applying small amounts of your epoxy, or do you recomend doing the whole gun? thnx john
