Why does the look of that metal make me feel uneasy in using it for a throw lever?

"I got 2 ultra lightweight aluminum ones for $15 (so I could mess one up) and went to work."

"Here it is after I sand blasted the bligity chrome finish off them."

If those throw levers were designed to hold bicycle rims securely to the bike frame, or a fat ass’s seat post in the frame ,I’m sure they’ll hold a EOTech to the receiver!

Plus, as pointed out already, he bead blasted them to remove the shine, and probably to aid in adhesion of the finish.
