Here is a prototype BilletSPIN Pro base. It holds three Pro’s. It is the only one. I thought about offering these on the Kickstarter Project but changed my mind. If you are interested in it message me. I have no idea what to charge for it as I will take a loss no matter what. I guess we will just negotiate a fair price.
1-3/4″ aluminum cube $50. This is a one time sale. These are over runs from the Kickstarter Project. The large hole on each side is 1.5″ which was made for the BilletSPIN Pro. I have 20 of these and once they are gone they are gone. Shipping will be $5 domestic and $10 international. I will ship these Monday of next week. Please respond here if you want one or two or twenty so everyone else knows how many are left. Thanks!
I have a lot of extra Rainbow PVD BilletSPINS available. $17 each plus $4 domestic and $8 international shipping no matter how many you order. Each one comes in it’s own labeled Microfiber pouch. Paypal is firstname.lastname@example.org
I have some of these left in all the colors. 1-1/4″ aluminum with anodized finish. Hardened ball bearing. Shipping is $4 domestic and $8 international total no matter how many you buy. Message me what color and how many you want and I will give you my paypal. Spin times are 3-4 minutes on a mirror.
The bases you see are also for sale. They are called the “Home”. They are $27 each. Black anodized aluminum. Once the Homes and tops are gone, they are gone. I will not be making more. I can ship these right away!
In a two week period I will have made about 1000 tops. They are haunting my dreams. When I look at my wife’s face all I see is a big bearing ball. If she does a ballerina twirl soon I will really freak out. When my kids stand next to each other all I see is three BilletSPINS resting in the home.
I need a Calgon Bubble Bath lol 😀 Thank you all for your support and encouragement. The Kickstarter project never would have been this successful if it were not for you all. Thank you for the shares and the kind messages. This is a great group and I am honored to be a part of it. Now have an awesome weekend!! -Rich-
Here is what 500 rainbow BilletSPINS look like
I wanted to lay them all out for a nice picture but I just don’t have the time
Oh I had to share a video of this!! I hope my phone does it justice
ugh, that video does not do this justice at all. The photographer will be here tonight! Jordan King, they are here as well. Pic later tonight! These all look amazing!!
These are now available on the BilletSPIN Kickstarter project!
Thanks for letting me join your group! Here is my latest
BTW, it is 1.5″ in diameter and I would love to hear some opinions on that size. I am new to tops so any help is greatly appreciated! Love this site and wow the tops posted in here are amazing!
This will be the Kickstarter project. 2 designs, the Billet Spin which will start at $10 and the Billet Spin Pro which i am working on pricing now. There are 7 anodized colors, rainbow PVD and natural aluminum. I will add the other colors as stretch goals. Then For the PRO version we have Brass, Stainless Steel and Titanium. Then we have the “Home” for the Billet Spins and the Cube for the Billet Spin PRO. We will also have a spin base I am working on now! Whew, I think that covers it! Thanks for the feedback! -Rich-
Here is the 13 minute spin video:
We have 18 CNC machines just waiting to go!! I will try and get some good pictures of the titanium and Stainless Steel versions soon.
The sphere is a hardened bearing ball. 5/16″ in diameter. The brass and Stainless Steel version has some weight and the knurl definitely helps!
The bearing ball is a G25 grade. I could easily trick this thing out and make it a very expensive top but I wanted to appeal to a higher market share by keeping this at an affordable price. The ruby ball is doable but there will not be much of an impact at all on the spin time. It would make a decent jump in price though and I am not sure if the majority of people would want to pay the extra for the ruby. I am just thinking out loud of course and welcome all suggestions!!
I promise you guys I will at some point be on a mission to make a high end top that spins as long as I can possibly make it. We have very high end 5 axis machines so we can make pretty much anything. I am just trying to get our name out there with this project and gain a following. That said you guys ar the experts here so I really appreciate all the feeback!! You all ROCK!! 😀
