Brian, thanks, I went on line and brought up a YouTube video of how to install a recoil pad and did see the jig, et al. I'll just have Dan Cullity install it. He's local and a terrific smith'.

Dan, I plan on being at Addieville for the April 9 Fun Shoot. Hope we meet then, Re: my first double on grouse. It was on the Westwood side of the Norwood Airport and off Canton St. I believe.

Wise decision, Allan. How many times have you seen a gun, with a freshly installed recoil pad, and noticed the wood is significantly lighter for about 2" forward of the pad? All it takes is one tiny slip up, and you've gone too far.
It's always wise to wrap a layer of masking tape around the stock, and do your power sanding up to the tape, then hand finish till you've gotten it flush.

Absolutely correct Edgar. While it's a rather simple process and installation, without the right tools including the jig, it just doesn't make much sense for to do it with what will likely only be a one off application. Dan Cullity is a pro and has done much work for me in the past and it's worth having Dan do it. Being retired now, I find myself looking for 'stuff to do'. This won't be one of them

Seriously? I Have been retired for 13 years and I'm still waiting for the day I don't have stuff to do.

Edgar, when Jean,my wife, was battling cancer for 4 years, most of my projects took a back seat as I was focused on her care and welfare. Her death left a gaping hole in my life that I am slowly but surely filling up with stuff to do around the house as well as become more involved in community and church related activities. Just was elected to our church vestry and in another week I'll be a member of our Plymouth Rotary. So, slowly but surely I'm gaining some traction again.

Almost forgot, the English setter pup that I've ordered will be my summer project!

My Dad used to tell me "When Life bucks you off, you climb back on again."
You, Allen, are an inspiration.

Here's a pad I installed myself about fifteen years ago. It came out very well, I thought.

Years ago I bought a 12" disk sander and what I call the "J" style jig that attaches to the sander. Here is a picture of the first recoil pad I made. No comments please about the KickEzz pad, I have the original DHBP to put back on if needed. The challenges were the curved butt and the widow's peak. I tried heating the pad and letting it cool hoping it would prevent a gap when the pad was mounted but I couldn't make it work so I cut a plug out of the center of the pad, installed a screw and put the plug back in. For the widows peak, I mounted the uncut pad, put plenty of release agent around the wood and made a dam around where the widow's peak would be. I also drilled small holes in the pad and inserted small pins. I injected black dyed Accraglass into the void with a syringe body and hoped for the best. After it cured, the pad was put on the jig and finished the normal way. You'd never know the widow's peak wasn't part of the pad originally.
