I first made contact with Mr. Wood on October 16th. The gentleman was on vacation at the time and still made the effort to return my call. :thumb:

Upon the conclusion of his vacation Mr. Wood was extremely expedient in fulfilling my request for one of his coning tools and shipped it immediately. The tool arrived in short order, in excellent condition, along with clear concise and easy to understand instructions for the proper use of the tool. Mr. Wood was even kind enough to include a handy stencil that made cutting the abrasives to the correct shape and dimensions a breeze.

The tool functioned exactly as promised and is a welcome addition to my collection of tools. My short starter, on the other hand, now lives in my range box and no longer in my possible bag.

My thanks go out to Mr. Wood for providing a quality tool at a reasonable price. Well done!
After dealing with Mr. Wood myself, I believe that if everyone was as good and honest as him, we wouldn’t need political parties. 😉

This mirrored my experience with Mr. Wood. I could not be more pleased with his customer service.

I finally got to use the tool I got from him to cone the muzzle of a .50 caliber longrifle this morning. One thing I do want to mention is that he suggests using double-sided carpet tape, with spray adhesive as an alternative for securing sandpaper to the tool. I tried both and IMO, carpet tape is the right choice. The spray adhesive was messy.

I also put a bit more of a cone in my muzzle than the instructions call for, since I want to be able to easily seat the ball. I checked for fit using .020" patch material but usually shoot the rifle with .018" ticking and a .490 ball.
