Learning to checker

I’ve started learning to checker stocks.  I hadn’t given it much thought before, but in the process of doing the rebuild on the Remington I decided to re-cut the factory checkering.  I started out using a single line checkering tool, and have a couple of new cutting heads on the way.  The biggest challenge, really, is keeping the lines straight.  When I can keep the lines from getting off kilter, the results are really, really nice.
