In this section, I will glue the points in the butt sleeve and the forearm.
I use a laminating epoxy. I always mix the epoxy on a scale to get exact proportions.
I paint the point grooves and the points with the epoxy, and give them a few minutes to soak the epoxy in.
The points are clamped into the grooves and left for the glue to set until tomorrow.
The next day, the second set of points are glued into the forearm and the butt sleeve.
The day after that, the forearm and the butt sleeve points are turned round and tapered on the lathe.
