Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Enfield barrel bands don't fit? Mk4# 1 LB

I am having trouble getting the front barrel band to close up enough to start the screw.
New wood upper and lower. Suggestions?

Yes the new handguards & forend are slightly oversized to allow for individual fitting. Try carefully sanding the flat bottom/top where they meet, till the band fits. Then (if needed) the barrel channel & receiver bedding areas. Repeat in ever decreasing circles till it's "right". You may need to re-bed a little more elsewhere as well depending on how much fitting is needed.
