FS Curly Maple 1/2 Stock Blanks
« on: March 16, 2022, 10:11:11 PM »
I have for sale some Curly Maple 1/2 Stock blanks.  Here are three of them. These are all from the estate of Lee Hamel. He and Cecil Brooks are the ones that made the NRA rifles that the presidents and others received.
Any question please ask some are having trouble with messages not coming through.

 I bought 2 a couple of months ago so I am full up for the foreseeable future. I only really needed one…
Had these been here earlier I could have saved some money.

We have about 75-100 stocks to sell. But i guess we will have to go to Friendship to move some of them.

Ed, I have some specific needs for some half stocks but I don't dare buy them on line.  I am building some English style half stocks with pistol grips and need to make sure they are deep enough in that portion of the stock.  When and where are you going to be at Friendship?

Bruce,
 I don't think any of our 1/2 Stocks will work unless you send me a paper pattern of what you need. all of these stocks a cut for Ky 1/2" stocks. These are the stock that Cecil Brooks and Lee Hamel made the rifles for the NRA to give away.
But I do have about 12 very nice curly maple boards that are about 5 to 8 FT long and they have some beautiful curl.
As far as Friendship I don't know yet if we can make the spring but will be there in the fall.
I can send you some pictures of the boards if you want.

Ed, thanks for the reply.  I am going to hold off until I can handle/see my future stocks in person.  Not that you would not send me something great, I am just at a point of being picky about what I want.

No problem I know that it is hard to see the curl in the pictures but I do have some very nice half stocks.
