I don't care for white glue as well. If you get a little to much glue on it will soak through. I have had good luck with 3M spray contact cement though. The contact cement makes a fairly quick bond if you let it sit(as stated on the can) but if you put the material on right away you can move it if needed.

I to used wool felt and it looks good.

Here's another of my felt & white glue travesties again in a "French Style" casing. I think I had to elbow a couple of little old ladies out of the way in the material shop when I bought the felt. The unfired Colt Police Positives in 32S&W from the 1920s housed in this rosewood case don't seem to mind the indignity however and they still retain all their blue. I have never cased any long guns as they simply take up too much space. Sorry about the quality of the picture as I had to use the flash.

Some of the nicer modern cases that I have seen recently (including some from Emebbi) have been lined in a synthetic velour. Looks good and tends not to absorb oil. Available at better fabric stores, but rather expensive. I have also seen lately some very nice wool flannel with a tight nap (similar to very fine men's suit fabric) and it's not too expensive. Lots of shades of tan, khaki, olive, navy.

I would not stretch the fabric over foam, because foam disintegrates and crumbles over time and with exposure to oils. I use cotton or synthetic batting, available from fabric stores or upholstery suppliers.

Jim,

I hope you never need any information on a Grant......

Here is how NOT to do it.



Actually this is my traveling case and I lined it with white cotton (t-shirt) material as it is very soft and absorbs oil well. The other side that isn't shown is cut out for a 30" SxS as those are the style of guns that usually travel with me.

PS I used contact cement.

Yeti: What is it they say about two nations separated by a common language?
Italiansxs: I didn't say that it can't be used nor produce good results, just that baize compared to felt (English definition!) gives an better result for a newcomer to this job. Likewise with white glue.
I am sure with your superior skills and experience in case relining, you would have achieved superb results with spit and dyed bed sheet.

Yeti, surely you cannot mean I?
It is common knowledge that I am so mean I wouldn't give away the steam off my ????.
I did post on here a long time ago a link to an English Baize manufacturer up in the North of England who is the supplier to the British Army for material for epaulettes and to the Hunts for their uniforms.Maybe Toby can provide the link?
