Some roughing in of a Chen Gen 1 Magwell. Having done about 1/2 dozen of these in the last couple years, I've come to really appreciated the Gen II version for sure. Lots of blending goes into one of these. Still in the works. But, getting close..

My goodness. The stuff you make is just wonderful and seeing what goes into it is incredible. Thank you so much for sharing it all.
I like trying to show stuff at the beginning and midstream, to show how much does actually go into these customs.. It's easy sometimes to look at the whole picture and break it down into a 1/2 dozen features, but getting these things fit and blended sometimes only gets accomplished with a dremel, file and sand paper and it can take forever to get it just right. Of course quality in the end begins with quality parts at the beginning.

Power outage today, I was about to set up the mill for a few projects and it looks like it might be awhile.. So, a good time to get the file and sandpaper up and running. Generator will run most of my house but, well pump, hwh, ac, and freezers most importantly..

Nice blending!

The welds look very nice, is that micro TIG?

One thing I'd highly suggest....softening the golfballs in a similar fashion to what Chuck does on his builds. It's a detail most wouldn't notice unless they've owned or handled one of Chucks builds, and then a build that just has had his golfballs applied....but the difference is significant and the softening is worthwhile, IMO.

Its micro Tig welded. The plan is to 400 grit the golf balls, have done a few like that. They can be a little bit rough freshly machined for sure..

I appreciate that lol. I have a generator and it would probably run it, but I try and not push it too hard. It's 7500 watts and would do the whole house and shop if I didn't have my box so loaded lol.
