I posted this up on the Nation and wanted to share it with my KUSA friends.
A few weeks ago I contacted Warpedmephisto
as I caught wind that he did ACE milling and installation for a really reasonable price. When I saw some pics of his work on his site - http://www.warpedairsmithing.com/
I wanted to support a fellow moderator brother. After contacting him he acknowledged that he did self ACE installs also as a service. The way it works is you acquire the board and eyes setup (Timmy, DM, Predator, etc.) and he will do all the milling and prep work for you and you do the actual install and setup. I had a pretty good knowledge or setting up eye systems as I have done them in the past on other blind guns (Spyders, Imps, BKO’s). I figured I could do the work on my Angel and since it was my newly acquired baby I wanted it milled professionally instead of me using a Dremel and a drill press.
I sent my gutted body and frame out to him and in a quick turn around it was back at my house and ready for me to put back together. I shipped about a week ago and I received the finished product yesterday. Then again we both live in the same state just 3 to 4 hrs away.
Now some pics of the work.
Left side of the stock detent, the newly drilled eye hole and drilled and tapped Eclipse eye cover screw hole.
Right side the newly drilled 2nd detent and same eye setup as left
Perfectly aligned eye holes minimize eye troubles from poorly aligned eyes.
Special effects with a flashlight Ohhhh!!!
Bottom was sealed
Bottom Eye wire milling
Custom switch plate to hold the new switch.
As a lower cost alternative to adding ACE on to an older Angel I see this as a great alternative. As more and more boards are being replaced by faster boards people are letting go their older outdated boards cheaper and cheaper. His work as you can see is top notch and should be a great choice. Once I get it all together again I’ll post up some pics.
