    Hi everyone,

    What is the going rate for a stock refurbishment? Total sand back and re oiling.
    I've recently finished my own stock for my s400 and wondered how much it would cost to have someone else do it professionally?

    Thanks
    Sam

    You don’t say what final finish you want and that’s pretty important. I’m guessing it’s an oil finish but I could be wrong. Also when you say sand back is their already a finish on it that needs cutting back and is their any chequering to negotiate. I would have a look at the job but wouldn’t be considered a ‘professional’ but I could send you some photos of my TX200 I did... personal preference but it’s glass polished and perfect with an incredible depth.... others might want a bit more matt look.... up to you :) DaveR

    I wasn't looking for someone to refurb the stock for me, basically I was asking how much do people pay on average to have their stock sanded to bare wood with any defects taken out and re oiled to the required finish.
    I'm in the woodworking trade so can produce the produce the professional quality.
    Not a big fan of the glass polished look but like you say it's personal preference. Would love to see the tx mate

    How do you get a glass polished look? Actually thinking of doing my custom walnut stock as it's looking tired.

    Thanks

    For the smoothest glass like finish, you need to look up 'grain filling'
    Or use a varnish but that will need to go on thick if grain isnt filled first
