Stock refinishing.

Ok since I have a KP on its way to me, I would like to start prepping for work that I can do to it. Namely refinishing the stock.

What do I need as essentials, and what other items will I need?

Thank you
Ben

Why a soldering iron?

I think I need to look into the linseed oil, I hear there are precautions I need to take with that stuff.

Fine grit sandpaper (600-800)

Is linseed oil something that most hardware shops carry? Ive seen stains and such before but not linseed that I am aware of.

As for rough grit do I need something along the lines of 100? I do have about 20 sheets of the on hand.

the soldering iron and the wash cloth you hate are to get dings out of the stock

you wet the washcloth, hold it against the ding on the stock, hold the soldering iron against it directly on the ding

steams them out

Linseed oil is available from most hardware stores. It is often near paint and stains. I believe you want the boiled linseed oil, not raw.

and you mix the linseed 50/50 with paint thinner, IIRC.

Take any rags you have after that and dispose of them in a metal container, preferably with water in it. Any pile of the things will catch fire very easily.

You want a clothes iron, not a soldering iron.

Place a damp rag on top of the dent, and use the steam (extra steam button, if your iron has it), to raise the dent (hopefully - it's not 100% guaranteed).

Linseed should be mixed with mineral spirits for only the first few coats. After that, linseed should be applied without dilution.

I never had a problem with my rags overheating. I must be the only one who never had that problem, by the number of people who have warned stringently about it. But, if I were you, I'd play it safe rather than sorry.

Ok in reading about linseed oil. I have to ask if it is the best to use?
