Sometimes Bad Things Happen

I was sent this broken stock to repair. It’s an early stock of mine. I’m in the processes of putting it all back together. Here are some pictures before I finished and completed the work.

I glued it back together, inserted a new pin and put in the splines for a extra strength and added insurance.

This was shipped by a major shipper and broken during transport. It took a tremendous amount of force to make a break like this. I would not be inclined to use this shipper in the future. I’ve had other problem with this shipper, as well.

I’ve broken shovel handles like this by using it as a lever.
