I refininshed my stock and was careful to preserve the wood to metal fit, but not careful with the pad to butt fit, so I have a little too much pad in spots. The pad is a SC style its plastic and composite. Any suggestions on how to remove some material without leaving scars on the pad?

Take this for what it is worth as it is coming from an amature-I would do the following: Wrap two layers of masking tape around the stock at the point where the pad meets the stock. You can get a special type of tape used for masking cars,etc for painting that releases easily and leaves little residue. Finish grinding or sanding the pad as necessary to get it where it fits to suit you being careful to not sand through both layers of tape. Using a 3M sanding pad (sponge like deal with two different grits) apply WD-40 for lubrication and smooth the edges of the pad to suit your preferences. Again, be careful to maintain at least one layer of tape to prevent damage to the stock. Wipe clean, remove the tape and residue and enjoy!

I agree with the above method except use a small block of wood wrapped with sand paper(keep level and no dips) start with 120,240 than 320 to end the cycle.Use plenty of oil to avoid tearing of the pad.

I'd be careful not to work with too much oil, as this can ruin the stocks wood.

Good luck!

i masked it off as stated above,then used a sanding drum chucked in a dremel tool to rough and shape the pad down to the tape,then did the 4 paper sanding cycle from there.
dremels are very handy,everyone should have one :wink:
