Destroying a perfectly good Alias!

Well was in a pawn shop the other day and saw this bad girl for $90 so I went ahead and picked her up(With a Virtue Board!!):



And seeing as though I have next to nothing into it, went ahead threw her on the mill at work, so far have this:



Planning on hitting the sleeve windows tomorrow, taking off the rest of the raised areas and a few spots on the frame since I technically have tomorrow off, then planning on stripping the black, and polishing the hell out of it!

Heres where I need some assistance, tried looking up images of custom milled Timmy's, without too much success, so if anyone would mind posting up any images they have I'd greatly appreciate it, my object is to make this thing as light as possible. Any input/suggestions would be appreciated also.

90 dollars? A steal.

Good luck with the project.

bah, its only an alias. if people would have cared about the gun then it wouldn't have ended up in a pawn shop.

go for it, mill the ever living crap out of the body. don't worry about what other people did to the guns, just let your imagination go wild and create something that you want.

Oh I've already got everything planned out, guaranteed one of a kind. And got to thinking, and remembered a kid I went to high school with works at an anno shop, so I'm thinking all the black will be gold, always loved the red/gold combo. But first things first. Will have updated pictures tonight.

Welp, all the milling on the body is done. Have to go back with sand paper and round off some edges/clean up some areas, but damn I can't wait to get this thing back together

I am just glad to see someone else milling with a mill and not a dremmel .

I notice its a nice mill too I still see flaking on the y axis gibs. a glass scale for a dro and x axis power feed maybe. And what kind of lathe is that hiding in the background.

The only thing "bad" I see is your holding your end mill with a drill chuck. Not that we all have not done that before but just watch for runout with those small (3/16"?) end mills it does not take much to over load one tooth and snap it. Believe me I know

Looks neat, I wouldn't DIY strip the anno with chemicals unless you don't care about scrapping the body.

I am the farthest thing from experienced with milling, couldn't tell you the brand's of the mill or lathe, just some machines we have at work (RV/Trailer sales and service), got the job done though, gonna do the rest by hand. Figured I'd just throw it on there and have some fun. And as far as stripping goes, I decided to just bring the stuff to a local annodizing shop that a buddy works at, had them do this gold a while back:

No, he just had it anodized by the local anno shop he's referring to.
