One of this things I enjoy the most about being a maker is when other makers come along side and give unsolicited help. I have gotten this a lot lately. This post is to give a special thanks to Jason Hui from Prometheus LightsFolks, if you have not checked out this man’s work, you need to. He is one of the pioneers of the Precision Spinning Tops and makes a ton of cool EDC products. Here is a link to his website: https://darksucks.com/…

Here are two of them! These are finished!! Hope you like them!!

A little better shot of this one

I don’t remember ever struggling this much to show off the details of a product. Even this looks horrible. SO many facets you turn on the lights and hot spots everywhere. Frustrating

10/7/20

springs are going to be here tomorrow. Working really hard on a good video for this. Taking up all my time. We are also working on some new machining techniques which is also taking up my time. We are still on schedule though and will offer a smaller drop (roughly 25) on Oct 14th noon central. We will do weekly drops of these for a while. All the info you will need will be in the video. Hoping to upload it this Friday!

Give you a little taste…

10/8/20

Need help! Is there anything specific you want to see covered in the Gambit video? This will be the official release video and I want to make sure I explain the product completely. Sometimes I get stuck in a rut assuming people know everything about a product. Any suggestions would be appreciated

wait until you see the third coin design…

I actually did this on…a computer… I feel dirty…

I feel dirty

10/9/20

Here it is! Let me know if you have any Questions

10/13/20

Good morning beautiful people! I am attempting to get some custom foam packaging for the Gambit. This can be challenging because some will order multiple components. I am going to pursue it though but tomorrow’s sale will ship in standard packaging. I am not worried about it being protected but I just think it would be cool to have some foam inside the box made specifically for the Gambit!
If anyone has any questions about tomorrow’s sale let me know! Have yourselves a wonderful Tuesday!!

10/14/20

Thank you all for the amazing support! Looks like the convex sold out first then stemless and lastly flat bottom. 700 line manual program coin sold out (much appreciated!). This gives me an idea on how to move forward. All these orders will ship today! Can’t wait to see some pics of them after you get them. More drops will be happening in the coming weeks. Thank you again and have an amazing rest of your week!

We are machining this drop now and will offer what I can. All three bodies and all three coins will be available. Coming tomorrow Oct 16th noon central https://www.billetspin.com/gambit2

10/16/20

Jeepers!! Crazy fast sellout on the bodies!! We will do another drop on Wednesday! Thanks again all 🙂

We are working hard on making upping the quantities on next Wednesday’s release. These just take quite a bit of time to make. We will be offering a few new variations as well. New variations can mean machining variations OR material variations OR both. We are getting low on springs and just emailed our supplier to see if we can get the next order in sooner. Doing all we can for you all! Thanks for the amazing support and really appreciate your patience! Have a wonderful weekend!
Rich

10/17/20

Looks like some Gambits might be delivered today!!

Let’s have some fun! I will give away one Gambit. Reply with which body/coin you want and what you like most about the Gambit and I will pick a winner Monday!

10/19/20

Congrats to Paulo Almeida on winning the Gambit! Please message Sue Stadler with your shipping info as well as the combo you would like. You can pick from the ones available as well as the on in the video from the contest. Thanks all for playing! I wanted to do a live video but our connection lately has been bad.

Who’s ready for the next Gambit release? Copper you say…

10/21/20

Just a reminder of today’s drop!! New body design and some copper coins along with some OG Gambits. Noon central today!

I got no words for this. THANK YOU all for the amazing sellout…AGAIN!! Bodies only lasted minutes, convex went first then stemless then flat bottom. We are getting really low on springs now but I have enough to do another drop this Friday OCT 23rd and for all you international buyers we are starting the sale at 10pm central! I will offer what I can and orders placed Friday will ship on Monday.

I am working hard on some big Gambit news so fingers crossed. The feedback has been extraordinary so we are trying to push the envelope that this connection system has to offer. More details to come. I apologize for our connection being bad and not being able to do live video’s. I will work on getting that fixed right away.

Thanks again and have a great rest of your week!!

Rich & Sue

10/22/20

Gambit update! I had an order of 500 more springs in and upped it to 1500. They are hoping to get me a partial in 2 weeks. I am running short on bodies but I will offer some this friday night at 10pm central www.billetspin.com. The rest will be offered next wednesday noon central. We have a decent supply of coins and will continue to run those.

The biggest issue we have is that coin #2 is the most popular and that runs on the same machine as the bodies. They are running non-stop so we are doing our best to keep the flow of these going! Fingers crossed we have the springs in time for the drop in 2 weeks.

Moving forward, I plan to introduce 1-3 new variations every Wednesday. These can be either material or machining variations or both. If the quick sellouts continue to happen then we will continue with the friday drops which will mimic the wednesday drops as far as offerings but will be smaller in qty.

Behind the scenes, we have a TON of stuff going on so I appreciate your patience. We will continue to run the Gambit here until I can build a big enough inventory to be able to offer these for quite some time. Once that happens we will move onto the next project. The Gambit will not be discontinued for the foreseeable future!

Lastly, some of the patterns don’t work in some materials. For example, Coin #2 will not be offered in Copper. Coin #4 will not be offered in Tungsten. The machining/tooling is just not a good fit for some patterns. As I get better at this design, I will be able to create patterns that are more conducive to being made from all materials. Will I be using exotics? Possibly, probably, fingers crossed. We won’t know that for a bit yet though.

Ok this really is the final point lol. If you want to help us out tremendously, post pics and vids of the Gambit to social media. This product has definitely got interest from people outside the normal market. The more people that find out about it, the more we can grow our community. Thanks 🙂

Rich

10/23/20

New coin design we are working on. One more tweak and I think we got it!

finished! Hoping to have some of these available for Wednesday’s drop! Don’t forget about tonight’s 10pm drop!

Well what do you think? Dropping some of these next Wednesday!

10/24/20

Thanks again for another quick sellout! For those of you that missed out, once we get the new spring order in we will increase the quantities of the drops. We are running very low on bodies and will offer up the last of everything we have this Wednesday. Doubt we will have a Friday release next week and fingers crossed the springs are here for the Nov 4th release.

10/26/20

Wednesday’s drop: Edit-springs are on their way so we can up the body quantities! More good news…TUNGSTEN coins!

Tungsten coins:
Design #2-$45
Design #1-$45

Bronze coin:
Design #2-$25

SS Spade Coin (This has been changed, see pic for new version)-$25

These will be dropping Wednesday, Oct 28th noon central
www.billetspin.com

GOOD NEWS! Looks like the springs will be arriving tomorrow or Wednesday. This means I can up the quantities of the bodies for the Oct 28th release. Might take up to a week to ship though. This will make it much easier to get a body 🙂

10/27/20

Who’s ready?

just a reminder, in 2 hours, we got the biggest Gambit drop we have ever had by far! This is your chance! 6 SS bodies, TUNGSTEN coins, Bronze coins, SS coins, new Spade pattern coin, oh baby! We will begin shipping…TODAY! www.billetspin.com

50 minutes…

Sound up 🙂 My personal Gambit

stemless will be the first ones to sell out, single digits left

Well we definitely gave everyone enough time to get what they wanted this drop 🙂 Thank you spring supplier!! This was a major drop so I am sure these will be around a while yet. More exciting things to come for the Gambit!! Thanks all once again for the amazing support, means so much to all of us here at BilletSPIN. Shipping will begin today yet and should have everything out by end of day Friday.

Live video in 5 minutes. We got it figured out

Let’s have some fun! You all draw up a coin design and post it in the replies. I will pick the best one on Monday and make it and that person gets one free! This is your chance to experience the joy of being a maker! Can’t wait to see what you got 🙂 You can just draw something on a napkin, take a pic and post it. One entry per person so make it good!

8 Ball

Let’s make something!

Let’s make something. I will continue to post pics as we go!

Step 2 done

This is as far as we will get today! Hoping to get one done tomorrow! Have a great night all

9/23/20

Getting warmer

Ok ok, it’s getting there now

Can you feel that…

A glow 8 ball would be cool too. Going to LOS one and see how it looks. Such a fun project

Couple more then onto the last operation. The Patina rubbed off a bit on the black one, it’s the top left now. We should start on the stands tomorrow!

9/24/20

Left my phone at home so I guess you are going to have to wait for the stands to be done before you see pics of the finished product. Hoping late today!

8 ball baby yeah!

just a heads up. The 8 ball is heavy. To try to lighten it I drilled a 3/4″ hole thru it. With the stand it comes in at 597g so its still crazy heavy. Thinking about this hole I thought to myself, what would Jim Skelton do. In honor of Jim, I took some tasteful nudes and printed them out, rolled them up and put them in the hole before I assembled it. You can’t get to them but if you end up with one of these, just know its in there. Video is uploading now!

Just want to be upfront. At the time of the video I had just started reaching out about the sales of the 8 ball. They have all been spoken for. I feel bad about this but this was far more popular than I could have imagined. I wanted to keep one but I might do a a SUS for it down the road. Thanks for all the interest, this was a super fun project! Have a great rest of you week.

9/25/20

The live video will be happening in one hour!! The amount of interest, comments, messages, emails etc over this project has been incredible. Some are upset and I get that! Let’s talk about it 🙂 No question or comment is off limits. There will be a smidge of new (possible good news) as well as a giveaway. Talk with you in an hour!

Have a great weekend all!

I almost forgot! Let’s pick a winner

Jeanette Criglar COME ON DOWN!! You are the next contestant on “I just won an 8-ball!” Message Sue Stadler all your info and we will get it shipped out on Monday. Thank you all for participating!

Top #46 “Vanguard”

Some progress! The body of this top is a design I have been stewing in for years. It’s time 😊

super early in the process

6/3/19

Starting to work on the body for this top now. I have always wanted to do the prong/claw on the stem side so you know what, I’m going to 🙂 pics to come once I get something worth taking a pic of. Designing everything on the machine as I go. Wish me luck

I like where this is heading!

Getting Closer, what do you think?!

I got the next design element planned but needed to order tooling. Should be here tomrrow

6/4/19

Let’s talk new top, short vid, better hurry

More tweaking needed but I like the way it’s going

Getting closer…again

way to go FB lol. I will upload it to IG also so you can see it in better quality

some pics

6/5/19

99% sure the top part of the top is done. Lots of minor tweaks. Added symmetry to both body patterns, shortened stem, added small radius in the prong corners, changed inside chamfer length so milling pattern is elongated, improved prong finish, made stem diameter before the ball smaller to accentuate curves and added length to body so I can get freaky on the second end 😊

6/10/19

New machine day! It’s first job will be running the bottom end of the new top. Our smallest CNC ever!

Gavin is all settled in. Mazak should be up tomorrow to install him and he should be making parts yet this week! I did have to order some holders as it did not come with the normal amount we get with a new machine. I will get a video of him working later this week!

This thing is awesome lol. Sooooo tiny

Our biggest machine is 52,000lbs this one is… 4,500lbs lol

6/12/19

Lots of tweaks needed on the bottom but the Vanguard spins like a dream 😊

6/13/19

About to get started, lots of tweaks happening. Goal is to get a Vanguard done early afternoon and get some pics of it today! Price for standard materials will be $125. I got a lot of exotic materials I plan on using for this one! Hoping to get sales rolling in a week or two. Shooting for 15 combos total.

BilletSPIN Vanguard!

-2pc top with carbide bearing balls on each end
-$125 plus shipping for standard materials on up for exotics
-around 15 material combo’s will be available
-will be available starting in a week or two
-.98″ in diameter
-All SS weighs 29g and spins around 7 minutes for me

6/14/19

Need input

Making tops with pointy things…

6/17/19

Go go Vanguard! Just waiting for Gavin to finish the bottoms

Gavin is the name of the tiny lathe we just bought

I would never poke fun. The machine is a beast and thats why I named it Gavin. Nothing says MAN like this machine

I think I will do 24 hour sales for the standard versions of the Vanguards. I “might” even split some exotic releases, one at noon and one at midnight. We deeply value our international customers and think this might be a good way to take care of them. We can schedule them but the only problem is that if there is a issue, we will be sound asleep. I would love to hear your thoughts on this.

I will post pics of any combo’s I know about. You will all know what I know. Thats the best I can offer

Due to my old source for Rubies not selling them anymore, I had to use another source. Due to the price of them, the Vanguard with a ruby in the stem will cost $5 more than the ceramic. Beside the cost of the ruby itself, we have to hold a much tighter tolerance in the bore so the ruby does not crack.

Besides Ruby, we will be offering black ceramic as well as white ceramic bearing balls in the stem. As of right now, I doubt I will offer carbide in the back of the stem as I don’t like how it raises the COG. Ceramic/ruby is very light. If you plan on spinning the vanguard upside down, do NOT buy the ruby.

6/18/19

Just made this CuW/Ti Vanguard and checking it for spin time and to see how bad the flutter is.

Here it is at the end of the spin. It will have a ball in the end of the stem, this was just for testing. It will be the longest spinner but like with all things I make tungsten related, will have a good amount of flutter. Is this a combo you would still like available? Price will be $150 plus shipping

scale at work says 39g

got limited amount of material and if I get a crazy amount of wobblers, I will not be making many.

Video of the CuW/Ti that will be coming in a week or two

Good things are a happening here in BilletSPIN land! Just want yooze all to know I luvs ya and hope you have an amazing rest of your week. Next week the fun begins 🙂 If anyone ever has any questions or comments just let me know!

Be sure to hit the lovely Sue Stadler up for any customer service related issues or questions.

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!!

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.

Rich Stadler

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

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

Trigon Official Information post: 😃

-Collaboration Between BilletSPIN and Tashi Bharucha
-1.4″ (not including spikes)
-7piece
-11 combos using standard materials (SS/CU/Brass/Bronze) in varying finishes
-Price range from $400-$425
-There will be 5 available per combo on www.billetspin.com on 3/7 noon central. First come first serve
-I will have a SUS’s in various social media for 2 tops of 4 different combo’s. These combo’s were also available on the website.
-Each Trigon will come with a numbered Dog Tag style COA
-Each Trigon will be shipped in our new BilletSPIN tins 🙂

Tashi will have a small amount of these as well in some of these combo’s to do with what he pleases. He will also have a 12th combo which will be a one off.

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!

Serious question. Sue and I are going to Texas TopCon. We are not going with the purpose of selling tops but rather just to spend some time with yooze all. With that being said, we do have stuff going back to the Matrix so if you want us to bring something down with us we can. You have to let us know in the next few hours though. Post a pic of the top if you want us to bring it down. Even if you just want to see it in person with no intention of buying. Thanks and have a great day.

Sue Stadler Only 2 hours left! It has been incredible meeting so many of our friends here and getting to know so much more about you all. Brought some new people into the top world and it is exhilarating to see their new found excitement! Had some fun spin contests for a couple kids and really had a fantastic show!

Here was one of the highlights of the Gathering in Vegas. Jason Hui is one of the pioneers of the top world. His Lambda Top inspired me to become a top maker. I have been a huge fan of his products and of him personally for years. I was telling my daughters about him the first night of the show. The next day I look over and guess who is standing at my booth…I have been doing this for a while now but will honestly tell you I was a little star struck. We ended up chatting for a while and even did an interview with him the following day. I was lucky enough to get one of his flashlights. If you have never heard of him, check out:

Now tell me that is not the greatest website name ever for somebody who makes flashlights! He is a genius. Here are a few pics of my Prometheus Lights Flashlight!!

So I told you all about lake flies, mosquitos and how the lake flies are so thick they are shown on radar… Now the mosquitos are not this bad bat are close in tall grass next to water. Brutal y’all.

Just a reminder, I LOVE the enthusiasm for our stuff but we don’t want any profanity in this group. We have a lot of kids that visit here including my own and want to keep it family friendly. Appreciate the understanding

Sue did such a great job preparing for this show. I am a very lucky man. Can’t wait to put some faces to names over the next couple days

What a show so far! I could go on and on but honestly the best part is meeting people from here in person. Some I have called friends for years and others much newer but all are just awesome people. Lots of shared respect from fellow makers, tons of amazing items here. If you have never been to a show like this I urge you to go sometime so you can see the talent these guys/gals have. I have not heard one negative thing this entire time. Just a lot of people coming together from different backgrounds that all share the love of this wonderful hobby. I will try to get some pictures and videos today if I can. Have a wonderful weekend!!

I have so much to post about from the gathering in Vegas. I need time to do it right but just know it’s coming and it will be long! So nice to be home though 🙂
