    When I took the finish off of my old shotgun I just used straight Tru Oil. It made for a beautiful blonde stock and forearm.

    I too used the Spectracide stump remover. I used "Dusting Sulfur" as well. The charcoal was the issue. I used Mesquite charcoal from the grill. Why not? It worked like garbage, but I now know it works like garbage. I will try to get my hands on some...

    I use mine for gas checks too. But the one I remember had the handle changed, the baseplate was different and the part that did the pressing was milled flat and looked great. And it was made by a company that I thought was Star. I believe...
