glass-bedding stock

I wonder what type of glass bed kits work the best?
I used to use Micro-Bed but it no longer made never had any problems.
I need to do one rifle remington 600 mohawk front of the action and recoil lug.

When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

Re: glass-bedding stock

AcraGlas is , well OK, but I haven't used it for bedding in years, since the late 70s anyway. If fact, the last time I used it IIRC was to repair some dining room chairs.

The stuff of choice today is Devcon Plastic Steel, Devcon F-F2 and Kiwi neutral shoe polish or Johnsons Paste wax for release agent.

Bedding Compounds
There are at least a dozen popular products used for rifle bedding. At one time or another, Richard has tried most of them. Devcon 10110 "Plastic SteelŽ Putty" is the only compound he currently uses and the only product he endorses whole-heartedly. "The Devcon 10110 is expensive, but it is the best bedding product I've found. First, it sets up extremely hard. That is very important to the performance and longevity of the bedding job. You want it to get it as hard as concrete. You need it really hard so when you tension the action screws it doesn't squish down or migrate. Some of the brown stuff other folks use is way too soft. Marine Tex is also too soft. Many products will shrink. Any compound that shrinks is useless in my book. Devcon has absolutely near-zero shrinkage. Acra-glass I keep in my shop, as it is useful for stock repairs. However I would never bed with Acra-Glass.

A good read how it should be done.

I use JB Industro Weld, very hard with 0% shrink and inexpensive. Whatever you use just be sure you have complete coverage with the releaser.

Many moons ago Bob Pease(RIP) got me using Devcon F(putty)-F2(liquid) for bedding material. Later on started the Plastic Steel also. Haven't used Acraglas for bedding since.

A funny. Had a guy bring one in he couldn't get apart, his first job. A short long story, he used black roof patch!
