        fill the holes with plastic wood, let it cure for several days and redrill or fill the holes with epoxy and saw dust and redrill. It can be saved !!

        Lets see it Bro. Sometimes the un-frustrated are a bit more flexible about a fix. That's why it is a community. Of course, sometimes we all make pretty firewood.;)

        It was after I oiled it up I used 2000 grit. Tried to use steel wool after to remove it. Maybe only 400 grit next time?

        In Mexico there is also an emergence of slingshot manufacturers that handle very low prices. But I have also seen that the price-quality ratio is direct: low price = low quality

        I can't say for sure but it is very strong. Micarta is a rather general term. What will you be laminating? Cloth, paper....

        I wouldn't get a table top bandsaw. I would look on craigslist for an old Delta 14". I got mine for $100. and you will be able to do much more with it than a cheap table top model.
        The old Delta's are all cast iron and bullet proof!

        I quit using metal cores all together. I don’t drill anymore but use a very high grade marine epoxy. As far as I know none of my shooters has separated.

        I always called them Chicago Bolts, but online they are usually listed as Chicago Screws. They are also great for putting on removable scales and swells.

        I'll get the frame and scales to size and make a dummy handle and glue them up with a cheap school glue stick that water will break and shape them most of the way down, epoxy them to the frame and do the final sanding.

        I lay the template on the scale wood and core, draw around the template then cut the rough shapes with my scroll saw. Then I glue the template to one of the scales with spray on adhesive. Once that's done I epoxy it all together and when it's dry, do a careful cut around the template.

        Straight cuts in 1/4" g10 are no problem for a carbide tipped blade, but for more complex shapes I've had success cutting with a continuous rimmed diamond blade in an angle grinder and then using my oscillating spindle sander and a diamond file to clean up.
