Top #23 “Alpha”

S23-11

Well why not, I haven’t done a build thread in a while. This is for the new design , “Alpha”. I will be raw with this so that means you will see the progression from concept to finished product and all the tweaks and changes in between. This is NOT the order thread 😀 I am expecting to make a lot of changes as I go so don’t panic until I am done 😀 I hope you enjoy the process!

The middle circle will be the start of a taper that comes towards you. The milled slots will allow you to see the stem through them similar to the Miracle

Ok, 1st end is done one the collar. I might still make a few tweaks, but I am somewhat happy!

This is the stem side. The ball side will not have any milling

Setting up the next machine now. Not much going to happen though until the stems are set-up tomorrow
Looks like this one will be $130 plus shipping as I said before. I needed to get the times to be sure but it is looking good
It was not how I originally wanted it but had to change it for a couple of reasons. It is crazy how different i looks in person when you rotate it 45 degrees. I am really happy with it so far but the real test is when the stem in in
Yo!

PLEASE READ:

1) yes you can change your order through 1/24. Just edit your original response in the order thread. On 1/25 I am taking a screen shot and starting to ship.

2) Yes you can buy more and add to your order. Just edit your original response on the order thread.

3) These ship USPS First class. All packages will have tracking but please give it until end of next week before you request tracking. I am getting hundreds of messages a day right now and I still have to manufacture and ship your tops so the messages really slow me down.

4) For the international shipping I will not deviate whatsoever on the invoice. It will be listed as merchandise at $130 value per top. This information will be on the shipping label as usual.

5) Order thread will be up until early 1/26. But like I mentioned above, do not edit your order after 1/24.

Thanks all!! It is going well so far! I have not had one with any wobble at all and that has never happened. I thin you will be pleased 😀

I was going to do this one the website but after a lot of thought I think this is the better way. I have another idea to prove out the website.

Stemless video. This one is a bit scratched up from the rocks in the photo booth but you get the idea.

Hey all, today is your last opportunity to edit your material combo. If you ordered multiple stemmed tops please make sure they are noted in the same reply on the order thread. I will ship in the order of the thread so if you have two separate replies I will get stuck sending two packages. Same goes for the stemless. If you ordered both a stemmed and stemless then you should have one reply on each order thread. If you can get that correct by tomorrow morning it would help me out a lot. Thanks!

Order threads will stay up until mid day Tuesday and all orders will be filled up to that point. Let me know if you have any questions.
