Lead Injection: Brownells is a fine source of tools. There are also a surprising number that you can build yourself. For checkering I recommend you get, borrow, find at the library etc. a copy of Monty Kennedy's "Checkering and Carving of Gunstocks". Shows some great work and patterns also several gunsmiths versions of their shop made tools. If you read this book through you'll learn a lot in short order. Then practice, practice, practice. Best of the season, BCstocker.
