I find myself in dire need of a stock copying/inletting machine.

Found plans to build one "cheap", just a few hundred dollars.
Not sure if I should even mention this.

Since Fajen and Boyds stopped making Enfield sporter stocks it seems making my own may be the best way to get what I need.

I will have to locate a source of decent but inexpensive wood, and maybe some laminate blanks too.

Knowing that this forum is primarily for restorers, should I bother to work out pricing for stocks to sell?

The machine only makes one stock piece at a time, so no mass production without hiring a flunky to run it for me all day.

On the other hand, with this I should be able to duplicate original stocks too, I could even use matching type and color wood for both halves!

Time is money, not sure if this will be practical for restorers or not.
At over $3.00 a gallon for gas, I want it leaded, 100 octane, and my windshield washed!

I think that you could generate some interest here. Enfield sporter stocks are hard to come by. So are #5 sets. There are also those that would want a K31 or Mex mauser or a sporter of some sort duplicated. I have an Enfield sporter set I would loan for making a pattern.

I have a H&R Reising Model 60 that has a cracked stock. A replacement can not be found. I would be very interested if you could make one... David.

Are you thinking about a complete replacement of all "furniture" components?
And what design are you considering? I was thinking of doing the same thing and remaking the "WELLINGTON" style stock set. I think they are by far the nicest design for Target\Sport type apps.

The front stock has an appliance rail along the bottom for attaching bipods and hand grip & bench rest attachments





You make the "Fine Wood" high end versions and I'll buy a set and make a composite & low end laminate versions.

I've been playing with this idea for a few years now...

I've just gotten a very fancy unfinished custom stock intended for Mauser.
It's been cut up for some reason, so my using it as a pattern for a new Enfield butt will not be a problem.
I will have to smooth it up before use, but the finished Enfield butt will deserve some of that fancy pattern walnut I keep getting e-mails for.

I think I'm going to build another extreme Silent Carbine .45, this one may get blued and high grade wood.
Just because I still can.

I know this is an old thread, but... Did you ever make any of the butt stocks for the #4? I would be interested in a birch one like you have pictured above but without the cheek rest as I want to add an adjustable one.

Thanks....

The machine I made does the rough blank OK but is poor for details such as the socket portion that goes into the rear of the action.
Ends up too tedious to be practical.

Being a "Duplicator" an original is needed for the pattern side.
Does not have to be great condition.

Come visit and spend a day with it.
I don't really use it much.

That's the coolest L-E wood I've ever seen, tell me more about it.

what ever happenend to this deal?
dont go cheapo  on wood. get the best and people will beat a path to your door, go cheapo and you compete with home depot/lowes fire wood.
 
 
also...
 
rather than compete in a saturated market.... sporterised stocks. why not repro the military furniture. for the III's

Manual stock duplicator is S L O W and does not handle the inletting well.

Any here who going to be in the Reno area this summer can come by and take a run at it, I just don't have the time.

Wenig's offers stock duplication, and they did a number of M1 Garand, and "C" and straight grip M1903 and 1903A3 stock sets for the Civilian Marksmanship Program.  Their page says they'll duplicate buttstocks and forends, and I think they mean mostly for shotguns, but when I talked to them, they seemed eager to try about anything, and their work on other projects for me has been pretty darned good!  http://www.wenig.com/products-and-services/duplication
Mike Kokolus, no longer with us, but his company lives on, made some superb stock duplicates, especially M1903 "C" type pistol grip stocks and handguards.  They do great work, but I have no knowledge of them making Enfield stocks.  Give 'em a call.... http://www.gunstockduplicating.com/index.html
