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.

Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

  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.

    That does look a nasty one mate,a few dowels and some wood glue should get that back together for you,at least it was a clean split which is half a bonus I suppose.

    Its going to need bolting from the inside of the stock..so its out of sight...Fill the crack with wood glue before you tighten the bolt up..And don't forget to do a pilot hole first..If the crack is clean and its done correctly ..you wont be able to tell its been done and it will be stronger than it was before the break..We can fix you stock later lol

    Where it's broken is where there is a joint anyway isn't it? As such, properly glued back together and it should be good as new.

    I'd go with the white PVA glue rather than epoxy where wood is concerned..

    I stripped some pine coreboxes at work the had been glued and screwed, it was PVA glue and when I tried parting the planks a large amount of wood was ripped off, the glued joint wa still completely intact on every piece :(

    Good luck with the repair however you proceed:up:

    Try doing that with marine grade epoxy you wouldent have a plank left. Pva is ok but its no good for anything thats going to be take outside and have shock loading put on it like gun stocks. Epoxy will do the trick.

    Just my 2 cents but I would recommend 'clamping' it somehow for 24hrs if your only using glue, infact whichever method you use......
