Top #45 “Trigon”

9/5/18

I know this is not BilletSPIN related but I have to share a insta-grail for me personally. Tashi Bharucha is one of the most talented makers I have ever met. I am so blown away with his designs. When I first saw his table I knew I was going to buy one instantly. It was like the first time I laid eyes on Sue, I just knew 🙂 Folks, if you have not seen any of this man’s works of art, check out his page:

Tashi Bharucha Design

Not only impressed with the art, but the man himself. Tashi, thank you so much, there are few things I will say I will keep forever but this is definitely one of them!!

Still playing but you get the idea. I did this with the Xeno but used a different method this time. This thing looks 200 years old lol

PLEASE READ TRIGON UPDATE:

Just had a machine go down. It will not be fixed until end of next week. This will push out the date for when I will have pictures of each material combination as well as release date.

I am HOPING to have pictures by Feb 28th. The new release date will be March 7th noon central www.billetspin.com

I apologize for any inconvenience this causes and greatly appreciate your patience.

frustrating is not the word right now. We only had a few pieces left to make on that operation. I will have to set this up on a different machine. This will add a ton of cost on my end. I just cannot wait for Mazak this time. Its not even the cost as much as it is the set-back for all of you. I hate breaking a release date.

Joe Edge this machine is a live tooling lathe. The milling motor is in the center of the turret. Each milling holder has a tang that stay oriented as the turret is indexed. The motor has a slot that orients the tang before the turret indexes so everything stays lined up. The milling motor has shifted inside the turret and tools cannot be indexed

Totally kidding, which trigon combo is your favorite so far?

i think this is the best trimetal top I have ever made due to the brass pins. Really makes it pop

My original plans did not work out for this combo. Thoughts?

Better pics of this one 🙂

The SS stem and collars had had the chocolate treatment and then a short tumble with very aggressive media. The divots and grip retain the chocolate treatment. Most has been removed on the collars but some hint of it remains for a cool effect 🙂

Let’s talk about this combo

I think the really cool thing about this top is that its styling is something I would design if I had the skills. Tashi Bharucha and I definitely have similar tastes. What a great collab. Really happy with how it all turned out 🙂 Hope all of you are too!
