Hmm, could cut a channel down the middle on the bottom with an end-mill bit... And... Uh... Well, I'm a wood kinda guy, so I don't know if you could do this with metal (pretty sure you can), but using a router with the proper shaped bit should cut out the dovetail nicely.

Thanks guys......by attach I was refering to weld onto not mill. As stated, I'm lazy lol. Since this piece is hollowed, I'm not sure there'd be enough material to mill it and have safe tolerences anyway. It's solid the way it sets but removing any material from the flanges might not be secure. Hate to go running one way while my tank flies in the other direction -

Yeah, I was thinking that too... Just didn't have enough time before heading out to dinner to completely formulate my thoughts. You could weld a rail mount from a company right onto it, hahaha. That'd be the simplest way. Other than that you can get some square stock and machine one out of that.

Do you know how heavy it would be? But a polished stainless steel Spyder would look really nice.

You would have to find a stainless dovetail mount since aluminum won't weld to anything other then aluminum.

What about using oxyacetylene to fuse the two metals? Everything's gotta melt at a certain point...

Aluminum doesn't melt at high temps, it burns. Compared to other metals it has a very low melting point.
