Billetspin gtg Florida contact Sue Stadler for more details!


Florida get-together: here’s the plan so far.
We will be staying at the Orlando Airport Marriott Lakeside. The get together would be in the evening on Dec 1st at the bar/restaurant unless we have a lot of people let me know they are going (not expecting that) where I would need to find more room. As of now I have two people who have messaged me they would be there.
I would love to meet many of you and we may have something special there too, no guarantees yet though. So I need to know whom might be there so I have a head count. I know it’s still several weeks off but I like to get things planned. If you don’t want to message me just reply “In” and I’ll know you are interested.
Thanks and happy spinning, Sue



Insomnia live vid. This is how I take pics and vids. If you are interested in the camera and lighting I use, check this out. Sorry for the quiet voice, family was sleeping.


This is just the tip of the iceberg


So these guys are taking some BilletSPIN stuff to SEMA along with their insane truck to show off. If anyone is going to the show, look them up and say hi! What an awesome gesture on their parts and a great exposure opportunity for BilletSPIN!

Folks I got a gift today that is just amazing. I can’t wait to post pics of it tomorrow!! I think yooze are going to want to get one (or a hundred) of these. Absolutely stunning

Brace yourselves, you are about to see him post a pic of it (them)

This is insane

Just wait 🙂 I am so pumped! I have no ties with this product but it’s a must have

Ok all check this out! See the replies for more pics! These are just amazing!!! I have no ties with the guy that makes these but I would love to sell them on the billetspin site but it would probably be easiest to buy direct from him. I will give you more details as I get them!


So Ella (my youngest daughter) and I wanted to go make something today and decided to make some whistles. Once we got a functional design, she tweaked them to look cooler. They are loud lol. They are not for sale, they are hers and I hope they remind her of the time we spent together today!

Proud daddy


GAW, Ella’s Prototype whistle. It will come with a COA with her signature from BilletSPIN. It is plain SS and plain as we needed to prove out the whistle before using high end materials. Anyone that contributed to one or both of Lindsey’s waffles gets two entries and everyone else gets one.
To enter just reply with a feel good picture, meme or gif. I will draw the winner tomorrow.


Ella and I will be doing a live video together tonight where she picks the winner of the whistle GAW. Lets plan on 4pm central unless Sue Stadlersays otherwise… 😛

iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiittttttttttttsssssssssssssss Ella! GAW winner will be announced here!

Not going to lie, this was a rough one. Some days I really don’t enjoy Facebook. One thing Billetspin has taught me is that there are a lot of people in the world with the best of intentions that have differing opinions. Sometimes we forget the first part of that.

I just want to thank you all for continuing to make this group drama free. Focusing on what this group is all about and getting to know each other through this hobby. I hope you all can focus on the positives and have yourself a absolutely wonderful night.

I appreciate the messages, nothing top related, my news feed was just depressing is all. I don’t to bring that discussion here so I will just leave it at that but I am sure 99% of you had the same stuff on yours  🙁


PLEASE READ! Just a reminder (as much as I love you all) Lindsey Wissing handles all shipping and shipping related questions/issues. Rich N Sue Stadler handles all other Customer service. I (Rich Stadler) handle none of that so if you message me I wont be able to be much help. Thanks!


Turn your volume down. How do you spin?

PLEASE READ: Having a hard time following all the pertinent BilletSPIN news? We have started utilizing the business page.


If you are like me, you have way to many groups already but the beauty of this is that you can see all the info without having to sift through community posts.

We will still be hanging out here to as you all make my days enjoyable!

You can also go to www.billetspin.com and subscribe to our newsletter. You will get emails about upcoming releases so you don’t miss out! Our Instagram account is BilletSPIN_Tops and be sure to check out our YouTube channel!

Anyways, if you have any questions let me know! Thanks as always for your support, your positive attitudes and for making this group drama free and just a fun place to hang out.


So sick of USPS. IN the last week we have found out they lost two wedding rings, a super conductor matrix and several other regular tops. We have no extra’s and my heart goes out to those that will not get their stuff. Refunds are the only option at this point. Makes me sick.

I am DONE with them. Shipping changes WILL be coming. I will do all that I can to keep the prices very reasonable.

BilletSPIN Suggestion post. I am not the kind of guy that likes to give unsolicited advice or opinions. If I don’t care for something, I keep it to myself unless I am asked. Well if you are like me (I know not all are ) this thread is for you! I will be totally honest, I have the next 3 months all planned and I don’t see that changing. Past that, I am wide open. I am not sure this will effect and future plans but trust me when I tell you that I do care about all of your opinions! So here is your shot. No offense will be taken. If you have a suggestion, I am listening. What would you like to see me do differently. What do you like/dislike.

Now here is the difficult part. If you are sensitive and easily offended, this post might not be for you. I really appreciate people sticking up for me when I or my designs get heavily/unfairly critiqued but in this case I am asking for it. This will only work if we can respect each others opinions even if you think the opinion expressed suck. Mods, any negative responses to opinions given need to be deleted. I got a crazy busy day tomorrow designing the K2 so please please please keep this thread clean and going in the right direction. If not, I will just delete the whole thing.

Have a great night!

Let’s talk machining and scrap. You got questions here is your chance!(click to view in FB)


Big news! We just got more spin bases in so those will be going up on the website next week. Not sure of quantities yet.

The Spark will be going live next Wednesday on Indiegogo! The video will be done soon and I will share it here with you. More details to come!

Thanks for the amazing support on the Triskelion launch today! It was a quick sell out! We will be shipping those next week! If you got any questions just let us know!

Have an awesome weekend!

July 2017 News

Check this out!! It was a gift from an amazing person. Now to figure out where to hang it!


Latest video!


As of today, BilletSPIN is officially out of the ring business. That could change but I doubt it. We loved making them but just don’t have the machines available. Just wanted to give you all a heads up. We will be removing the rings tab from the website



We have had a lot of issues with USPS lately on international shipping. We are looking into ways to make this better. Not sure it can be done but we are dedicating a lot of time to it. We are checking with all the different carriers. We will NOT undervalue items as it is illegal for us to do so. There are certain rules we had to follow shipping via USPS but we are looking into any alternatives we can find.

If you are an international buyer and have had great success with certain carriers from the US please let me know here. Your input is greatly appreciated. Thank you for your continued support and know we care deeply about you!


Next BilletSpin design will be called “the dark overlord”. It just came to me  😛 rolls right off the tongue. This is just a joke, been quite the interesting day!

Lindsey Wissing – Rich is not here, so I’ll do my best to make an announcement like he would do: Hey yooooze, there will be a smallish amount of spin bases available for tomorrow’s launch. Don’t be blue, but their no blue. Thanks for the support, I loves yooze all, and manatees, and golf and onesies, and fast cars, and Gavin Sexton and anything Cody Mayfield makes. Howd i do????

Lindsey Wissing It was exceedingly difficult to intentionally make that many grammatical errors. Please forgive me Andrea Whitlock.


Just got back to work and found something very special waiting for me from Alpha Knife Supply. Using it to make a one of a kind. This should be amazing

For those of you that don’t know, my buddy Jim Skelton has started making his own knives and is putting out some amazing stuff already! I normally don’t do much promoting but this is a special case. Jim has been an enormous help to me and BilletSPIN. Plus I know how hard it is to start a business from nothing and the risk that comes along with it. Jim is doing it right and putting out a very high quality product. In speaking with Jim, he is an amazing designer and thinks outside the box. I am so excited to watch his business grow and see the amazing creations he comes up with.

Anyways, if you are into knives or want to see what all the fuss is about, check out his new FB group.


BilletSPIN business page and update on next designs



Hey all, my inbox is full. I will not have a chance to answer anything until probably Monday. Things are a bit crazy up in here. Hope you all understand and have a wonderful weekend!


I know we are behind on some things and have a few things that need shipping and a ton of messages and emails. I apologize for the delays and promise we will work very hard on Monday to get all caught up. Have a great weekend!!

Fine people of BilletSPIN, the video you requested!


Sup you amazing people. I want you to stand up. Yes, I am talking to YOU!! Stand up and go find a mirror (take your phone so you can read the rest of this). Take a good long look at yourself. Maybe things are going good, maybe life just sucks right now. Maybe you are going through a struggle that you think is never going to end. Well know this, you are awesome. You are loved and everything is going to be alright. If you ever need someone to talk to, pm me. Have an awesome day



Just a FYI, unless you are Gavin Sexton, any propositioning or dirty talk to me will get you removed from BilletSPIN  🙂

April 2017 Updates & Extras

Just purchased a new piece of equipment today! I have no idea if it will do what I am hoping it does but it was worth the risk. You will know more in a few weeks depending on when it arrives!!


It will be interesting. Its a never ending challenge to continue to improve. I have a tiny little bit of experience with ovens for coloring and there is a LOT of potential here imo


New machine is here!

BIG day for BilletSPIN. We gonna have some fun in the upcoming months  🙂

BilletSPIN update


Testing the new studio. Lots more goodies coming. Let me know what you think of the lighting and sound compared to my other videos. I think we are on the right track.


Attention!!! Important update!!!! PLEASE READ!!

As some of you know, BilletSPIN is just a small part of our main company. Our plant manager of the main company was just diagnosed with a brain tumor. He will be going in for surgery tomorrow.

Due to this, I have to fill in for him for an undetermined amount of time. This morning I discovered that the main company is behind on some orders. In order to get caught up, I will have to use the machines I have been making the Matrix on for a short time.

What does this mean to you? Exotic combo #4 will be completed before we switch so we should have all those shipped early next week. Exotic #5 will NOT be launched this week and right now, I don’t know when it will be launched. I will keep you updated though.

Indiegogo-nothing has changed and the ship dates will be as promised. The only thing this circumstance will change is the exotic schedule. They will just be pushed back to accommodate the main company.

Our main concern right now is with our plant manager and his family. I appreciate all your patience and know that we will update you all with any information as we get it. THANK YOU for your understanding.


Rich Stadler


Surgery went well. He was awake and speaking during so because they were working near his speech and motor portions of his brain. He was talking this morning and knew who his wife was so things are looking good. They were not able to get all of the tumor. He now has a titanium plate in his head. Biopsy will be a few weeks. Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers. We will keep you posted.


Please Watch this!!!!!!!

Official Matrix Info and Combos

PLEASE READ ENTIRE POST: Here is the exotic chart. Shipping will be $5 domestic and $12 international.

On Monday (3/20) at noon central we will release exotic combo #1 on www.billetspin.com. It will be a 24hr sale and I will make as many as are ordered. Once the 24 hour sale is over, it is gone for good. It will take 2 weeks to ship all of them.

Once #1 is close to being done, we will start the countdown timer for #2 and post details of its release here. Once 2 is almost done being machined, we release 3 etc. This whole process will take a few months.

Any combo with 30 or less total will be sold on www.signupsale.com and we will post that well in advance of the actual release. Any combo over 30 will be released on www.billetspin.com. Sign up sale combo’s will be limited to one per person only. Combo’s with over 30 will not be limited to one per person.

I will only announce quantities on SUS tops. Most exotics will be limited quantity but some will have a timed sale like #1. I do not know which ones those will be so you will have to wait until we release the details of each combo prior to its release.

There are 5 mystery tops. Those will be combo’s of my choosing. I am doing this because I dont know how much materials will be left and I might come up with a cool idea later on. This keeps my options open!

Let me know if you have any questions and thanks for being awesome.

**QUANTITIES ARE ESTIMATES and dependent on many factors and are
These quantities are NOT set in stone and can change and change drastically.!!!!! This is the best I can do for now. Thanks again!

Official Matrix information post:

Here is the preview link to the Indiegogo project that will be launching tomorrow. Let me know what you think!

Matrix Indiegogo Campaign

This link should work once the project goes live too.

I will update this as I get more solid info.

-1.2″ in diameter
-1/8″ carbide ball
-9 pieces (4 main components and 5 SS dowel pins)
-the dowel pins will be SS on every variation

-Standard material combo’s will be $200 plus $5 domestic and $12 international shipping

-Standards will be sold through www.indiegogo.com and should be launched around 4/11/17 and be about a 20-30 day campaign. EDITED DATE

-standards will be unlimited

-1st exotic will be SS/Timascus/SS and will be launched at noon central on 3/20 It will be $300 plus shipping and will be an unlimited 24 hours sale. EDITED

-Exotic combo’s will be sold on www.billetspin.com for any combo with at least 30 tops. Less than 30 tops will be sold on www.signupsale.com

-in the case of the SUS tops, they will be limited to one per person.

-I will make the exotic samples and get a chart of them showing the order they will be released and the price for each. I will not know quantities until we start making them.

-Exotics will then be sold and made around the same time. This will keep the delivery lead times short. Once one combo is shipped, we will move onto the next exotic combo until all of them are sold out.

-I will reserve the right to add a few exotic combo’s to the chart in case I might be inspired at a later date.

-I will NOT be using Tungsten on the Matrix!!!!!!

This is all the info I have for now. Stay tuned for more details as I get them. This will be epic, I cannot wait! THANK YOU for your continued support!
