Official Mini Baking Tips and Discussion Thread

Ok so i was watching videos of people being stupid with their invert minis and i came across a video of who i now know is MAXOC(credit where due) who mirco-switched his mini. he goes on to say that he baked his gun changing the anodized color! ive heard of this being done before, but not with minis....heres a bit of a guide on how to do it with your Mini!!!! PLEASE BE SURE TO REMOVE ALL O-RINGS - MAGNETS - WIRES -CIRCUIT BOARDS- PLASTIC!!! PRIOR TO EXPOSURE TO PROLONGED EXTREME TEMPERATURES!!!!

if you want to remove the anno completely to raw...CLICK HERE to find out how

----COMMON ----
***the color change is subject to the variable of Oven temperature / Bake time. But the stats listed above are for reference of the color achieved in the pictures below, the longer you leave it in the oven the more drastic your color change will be. When you heat up the aluminum, the pores open up and the dye color evaporates. less dye = lighter color. that is why when you bake silver, it doesn't change because there's no color dye in silver.(dust colors do not change)***

PARTS THAT CAN BE BAKED-
-feedneck
-Bolt Guide and backcap(remove orings)
-entire foregrip / battery door (remove from frame, then remove circuit board*see stickys for help*)
-Mid Plate between valve body and trigger frame
-trigger frame_all you have to do is remove the magnet or replace it. i just drilled the magnet then hit it with a punch & hammer and it split and feel out. then glued a new magnet in. or you could just bake it with the trigger in then get a cp trigger witch uses a spring for return then it wouldn't matter that your magnet was messed up.
-detent covers
-the stock Barrel
-asa adjuster cap
-you CAN bake the valve body itself,(AT YOUR OWN RISK) because it has a magnet epoxied inside the main body that will loose polarity (as said in max's video) you will damage your marker, which is the reason he ended up micro switching but...(NOT FOR NOOBS)if you so desire to bake your body/entire mini...you can see the HES magnet right under your sensor board epoxied to the body. People who have done it said it can be removed with a razor blade. Its just glued to it, you can't hit it hard and you can't use heat though. If you damage it in removal use a replacement magnet. also...MAKE SURE to remove the CHECK VALVE. It is possible to do, but requires some patience, time, effort and skill. GOOD LUCK!!

YOU MUST NOT BAKE-
-the trigger
-the ASA/Gauge
**AGAIN: obviously do not bake any plastic/circuit boards/o-rings/wires - also i realize theres alot of young inexperienced people on the forum so i must state that THE PARTS WILL BE HOT OUT OF THE OVEN!! DO NOT TOUCH THEM DIRECTLY!! IT IS HOT METAL AND IT WILL BURN YOU!**allow ample time to cool upon removal, do not use water to cool parts! and although aluminum displaces heat quickly.....allow to air dry for several minutes!

-----------------------------**POST PICS OF YOUR BAKED MINI!!!!**-------------------------------

unless you have a special tool you cant bake the asa parts in their no do gud in oven, for the rest make sure you take ALL parts off that arent metal, unless you like bad smells and ur mom mad, as you might break your oven

Make sure you remove any magnets and o-rings. Magnets de-magnetize when baked to be careful.That video was most likely MaxOC. Be careful because if not done properly, baking can ruin your mini.

yah, to get feedneck off put your hopper in it (halos work great) tighten it as much as you can then use your hopper to leverage it off, if u have 1 that wont come off after that, use a torch and pry the ****er off, and if its stuck, ur SOL cuz u will need a new feedneck
