I have an old Victor Sarasqueta side by side that got some very deep dents knocked into the front of the comb, at the top on the edge.
Is there any way to fix it? I dont think steaming it will do very much as the dent is sharp edged and about 2mm deep.
Anyway, I think I may need to get some sort of filling in to fill out the dents. Any idea if this will work/is the best option? if so what should I use? a sawdust and glue mix? I dont want something that will look out of place.... I really like the gun and its a shame to have that dent... I dont like feeling those nicks in it when by fingers go over that area...
I probably shouldnt be doing this myself though... if I understand this correctly the wood would first need to be stripped of the varnish etc... Theres a guy close by (Manuel Ricardo) that does absolutely phenomenal work on stocks but I probably wont be able to afford his services so I want to know what could be done.
