milling on the lathe

well this is the only way iv figured out how to do this so far with the tools i own. the grip needs a channel inside for the trigger linkages and i didnt cast them in so its metal removal time. i chain drilled it and shimmed it up and went to town with a little carbide tool and a drill bit. kept the beard out of the moving parts and had my saftey glasses on so it worked out. had to do a minimum of hand filing also. i guess its make do milling.
