Looks pretty sweet! I might have to try something like that this summer (want to purchase a mill myself). What kind of mill is that? Excellent progress, sir, keep it up. Are you planning on anodizing it?

It is this one: https://www.paulimot.de/maschinen/fr...hneid-funktion

Anodizing it would be pretty cool, but too expensive:(

Sweet! I was looking at the old full size Bridgeports, the only issue being their power consumption (well, they are kinda heavy, too, at 2500 lbs). My dad used to work as a machinist, and still has some of his tools, I think it would be pretty cool to give it a hand and custom make some parts.

On a second note, I believe I read online that you are able to anodize at home for not to bad a price (the supplies didn't look expensive). Could be wrong, but that would be pretty nice!

How do you like that mill? My budget on one would probably cap around 1700 USD, and that one certainly fits the range. Well, good luck, and happy making! I hope your project goes well!

I would have also gotten myself an old industrial mill, but theyīre just too damn heavy... My mill stands in my basement, so I had to carry it down a small wooden stairs (this would have been impossible with a 2000lbs mill).

I think the length of the stock would make anodizing a bit harder/more expensive, but Iīm still gonna look into it!

Iīm pretty happy with the mill so far ( I have no long term experience with it though). I think for making airsoft parts, itīs enough.

Itīs great that your dad already owns some tools. I had to buy pretty much everything, which ended up costing as much, as the mill itself

Anyways, good luck and have fun if you get a mill!

Sure thing! I think it would be fun to make super strong gearbox shells (maybe for sale, we'll see) for people like 1Tonne who want to make really high-end high-fps builds. This is all still in the thought process, as I said, probably wouldn't have enough power for a full size mill, but it would sure be a looker! Thanks for the input, you've got a beautiful piece there.

Started making the hop up chamber block, as I didnīt want to mess around with the slope at the bottom of the stock block.



Milled in the front radius:




Starting to get itīs shape:


I chamfered the front edges of the block, so they donīt interfer with the radius of the pocket:

If you’re just mucking around in aluminum, carbide tipped wood router bits with 1/2” shanks work wonders with a little cutting fluid to keep it from sticking to the bits. Lets you run some interesting and inexpensive profiles.

Lol, imagine making a STEEL stock. THAT would be hefty. I think it would be a fun project to make an MSR stock though.

Thank‘s for the tip!
They’re like ten times less expensive than endmills for metal.

Made some more progress on the hop up block. It is pretty much finished by now, except for the mag catch portion.



Fits right against the upper:

Made room for the mag catch.



Also made the part that holds the mag catch (normally part of the stock).


This will be screwed into the hop up block once I get the screws.







Everything fits right into place and works fine as far as I can tell.
Masada, Masinmees and Sodium like this.

As the screws arrived, I made the two holes for the countersunk screws to hold the two pieces of the hop up block together. I also drilled another hole for the body screw, as I messed up the first one.



Then I started making the piece, that the buttplate will be screwed into:





After milling it to itīs rough shape:


And after filing it to itīs final shape:


Everything sits flush:
