Not sure if you all are into progress pics but here you go. It has a long ways to go but thought I would share what I got so far! Hope you like it 😀
“The Wraith” WIP – Day One:
Rich is working on my stem today (giggity) and here’s what it looks like. The rods you see in there will have cutaway windows to reveal tritium tubes. Amazing… and this is only the stem!!!!
Rich predicts it will take a full week to make this one top.
Big news! Thanks to all of you and your support, we just purchased a new Mazak today. It will be here in a few months. This particular machine will allow me to do some things that were difficult due to the machines we had available. For example, if you look back you will notice I don’t do hardly any milling on the ball side of the collar. This machine will change that. I might still not on some tops due to the design but you will definitely see more of it once the machine arrives. It will also be more conducive to some operations which will make my life easier. Most importantly, it will allow me to keep growing BilletSPIN and provide you with new, creative designs.
There is so much new stuff coming. Two brand new products in the next few weeks. One is top related, but not a top and the other is the carbidecoins. These will have a hole for easier carrying.
The biggest news is coming in a few months and another later this year. Two huge surprises but they are way to far off to go into any more detail. Once again, this is all thanks to YOU! Words cannot express my appreciation for you all. Stay tuned for more updates and have a great week!
Navigator contest GAW: I deleted the spin contest in favor of something better. I will take care of the one entry we had to this point
To enter this contest, take creative photos with the Navigator. I am not worried about quality of photo but rather how creative you get with the tops setting. I will let this run one month (5/5) so everyone has a fair chance. To enter:
1) take creative photo (one entry per person)
2) post that entry in response to this post
3) must be the owner of Navigator to qualify
I will pick at least one winner and they will receive a free top of my choice! Keep all entries clean 😀 Thanks!
