It's for a set of handguards that I'm trying to fashion for an FN FAL
I'm essentially trying make the handguards shown on this rifle
out of some french walnut.
The problem is that the bipod cuts are impossible to cut unless you increase the thickness, which handguards such as these are already terribly thin.
So the plan was to cut these, just above the bipod "slots", duracoating the metal and then "gluing" them to the upper portions fashioned from the french walnut.
so the glue would need to be strong so that in the event that the rifle were to fall (heaven forbid) it wouldn't simply snap away from the wood.
