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.

    No reason why not as long as you drill a pilot hole first or you will crack the stock

    A little tip for screwing stocks. The ridge line you are drilling into is fairly narrow on a stock and worst nightmare is not splitting the stock (unless you are that cr#p at DIY lol) but the dril skiding down your stock and making a nice long gash.

    Get a block of wood and cut a V shaped slot in it so that the ridge of the stock fits in the V. Decide what side drill you need as the pilot hole and drill through the bottom of the V and out the other side. You now have a guide for drilling.

    Clamp your stock in workmate or similar (Don't try holding it with your hand, your chance of a balls up increses by a factor of 20 if you do). Place your V block on the stock ridge, put the drill through so the tip hits the part you want to drill (Marked with masking tape) and holding the V BLOCK FIRMLY start the drill and the block with prevent the drill skidding and sliding off the stock and you will have a damn sexy, mighty fine hole where you want it and your stock can breath a huge sigh of relief that you didn't damge her.
