1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

    Sup fellas, wondering if you can help.
    In the process of doctoring my first stock, working with a fantastic piece of furniture grade walnut and would like to keep her as natural as possible. Does anyone know the best oil to use that will keep the beauty of the timber and not colour it. I only know of Danish from using it on worktops, is there better?

    Pure Walnut oil... (Satin finish) or Tru Oil if you what a (Gloss Finish) depends how you what it to look.

    Both finished with 2000 grit wet & dry paper. Neither add colour to the natural wood.

    Thanks man, defo gonna go with the satin & didn't think of wet & dry. So far it has cost nothing but my time,( which ive really enjoyed) but wet and dry isn't going to break the bank. Do you know the best place to get walnut oil & is that all it needs finishing with?

    Yes, my preferred Walnut oil is “Parker Hale”.

    Takes a little longer to dry (24 hours or so) between coats but worth the wait.

    As said previously, apply by hand (fingers) then light 2000 grit wet and dry)

    This is what it looks like (20+ applications)

    Hey fellas. Quick update on the stock, ive messed it up. Its no biggie as I have as many blanks as a walnut blank shop, but as its my first stock I wanted it to be something. Everything went so smooth, I put the wrong bush guide in the router, a 15mm instead of a 22mm & the trigger hole is basically square!! I will be starting another tomorrow and still have progress if this one if anyone wants to see how it went

    Home made “Tru Oil” works a treat..

    boiled linseed oil, mixed with a little clear varnish (I use polyurethane) and alcohol, or thinners.. Its what a hell of a lot of cabinetmakers use....

    Commercially produced Tru Oil has Tung oil in it as well to make it dry faster, but if you’re happy to let it dry overnight between applications, You don’t need it, and Tru Oil is 5 times the price of homemade!!!

    Make the square hole as big as possible and glue in a square of rosewood or something like that. Then re cut it the correct way. Might look OK

    Thanks Johnny, i haven't been able to look at her because of my mistake, but praise from my pal sarge(fantastic rifleman & reason im on my air rifle journey) & yourself liking her too, I am going back to the workshop. Its got loads more shaping & its only had 80grit over it so far. Im going to order the riser rails and butt hook tomorrow and also need bigger mount screws, but the tx action fits beautifully and also shoulders fantastic, I will cut the butt down once I have hook.
    Thanks again man, ill post up progress
