    I'm trying to use my dremel to get rid of the first tooth and part of the second one for the sorbo pad I'm adding, but my dremel can't do anything to my piston, just little scratches. What do you guys do for your metal pistons to remove the teeth. Do I need to get a different tool, or a new dremel head if so which one is ideal? Thanks ahead of time. Oh and on a side note, how much do airsoft techs charge people for doing a full blown custom job on a gun?

    Don't use a metal piston go with an shs 15 tooth nylon piston and I don't know about the other thing.

    I just use a bench grinder to remove teeth off of my pistons. You know those with the big "stone" discs, works like a charm.

    Id say at least $400 for a full blown custom tech job from a good tech.
    Oh and I used a dremel to remove my teeth. Took like 15mins per tooth.

    I use a little grind stone bit, works like a charm.

    EDIT; I just found a better bit for the job, after SS'ing 2 teeth i found a carbon cut of bit and a steady hand works great, two teeth down in less then 15 minutes. :)

    Only takes 15 seconds per tooth with one of these bad boys. :D
