  1. Yeah I mean when I hear pitting, I think of tiny little holes in the surface of the metal that have occurred with corrosion - if there's not any metal damage, it's definitely worth a try... if you already own the putter, it's definitely a green light... if buying to refurb, maybe take a pass on this one.

  2. I might avoid that head due to the pitting on the face... having seen some torched/oil sealed C62s that are really well done, it'd be tempting... but I've also done one that was in about the same condition, mine may have been a little better, and due to the pitting, it made even pretty good work look just "meh". Find a good stainless head for project 1, no sealant worries that way, and can get a feel for the stainless heat coloring process. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  3. Thx Kor Don't get me wrong, there are grips that can't be blown off, and I've popped more than my share but with the pvc sheath and 75 psi it's pretty mindless to blow putter grips worth saving off. Once enough air is in the Grip it just fires back against you and if you let it, it'll slide right off the shaft Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  4. Yeah I guess I'm referencing blowing grips with the normal grip tape underneath. I was wondering what I'm doing wrong that I can't get any sign of movement at less than 65/70 psi Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  5. Run it at 75-80psi with a pvc pipe just larger than the grip acting like a housing around the grip - this will allow you to confidently blow grips off without worrying about popping them. I have an 8 gal Kobalt compressor from lowes. Great for blasting, airbrushing, grip work, air hammering. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

  8. These have all been sold. Thx Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  9. Here's the final M1A from the maiden group of the Machine heads. These machines are/will be for sale. They'll be listed on eBay toward the end of this week... and I just put em up on the BST page in the forum in case any MGSers would take advantage of first crack.

  10. Doing some work with Dave at Machine, finishing raw putters fresh out of the mill. Have 3 Machine Putters from the maiden batch of our deal together that I wanted to offer to the MGS crowd before listing "across the street" and on eBay. Moreover, if you've wanted a certain Machine, or a custom build, shoot me a PM, and we'll see if I can fix you up - Billings has a lot on his plate with some work he's doing for Bloodline and other machining work on several putter products for the Machine brand and other brands in the industry. But, I can potentially get one built while I'm making a weekly visit to the shop and would be happy to try to help! ..... anyway, onto the putters! 1. Machine M10-Fixer - 1018 Mild Carbon Steel - Naked at Address Torched, Oil Quenched Rainbow Finish. (Lots of blues and purples in the finish, but also very even and super sharp!)

  11. Wow, these are a blast to work on... First is an M1A-Adjuster (Anser 2/Newport 2 style head) with a matte oil quenched torch finish: Second is a swan neck/modular center shafted M10-Fixer (Anser/Newport style head) with Oil Quenched Rainbow Finish: Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  12. Here are the first few Machine finishes. Please excuse the excess paint. One of my favorite things about these putters is the understated Paintfill and the fact that it doesn't take a half an hour (or more if you f-up) to Paintfill these bad boys. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  13. Awesome! Looks great! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  14. It did, but I shudder to think what I would've shot without it 🤡 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  15. I have a grudge against those stamp sets from harbor. They'll be fine on a copper slug but make sure you get a sharper set if you intend to stamp your clubs. I learned the hard way. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  16. Something rather exciting happened to me on Thursday. I got the chance to meet with Dave Billings (founder and maker of Machine Putter/Dogleg Right) and it looks like I'm going to get the chance to do some finishing work for him over the next few months. I left on Thursday with 3 heads. 2 raw carbon M1As and a raw stainless "upside down putter" I don't remember the official model name for it. So I've been working on those for the last couple days. There are a few projects I finished this week that I haven't gotten around to posting, but I'll get some pics up soon. I'm def interested to see how Mr KorADoor's ping turned out. Looking forward to photos of the finished product! Side note: I played for the first time in forever this week and used my kickass new ball marker from "ExtraterrestrialsDinedOnMyLivestock". I also marked the ball of a notoriously slow player in our group with it more than once... (it says "LETS GO, THIS AINT AUGUSTA" on it) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  17. This was a lot of fun... done for the golf shop down the street that has been really good to me this year. Treated me like I work there, let me use the workshop when I've needed to, grips, shafts, definitely wouldn't have been able to do a lot of what I've been able to without em. They picked this up for $35 Before: After:
  18. Thanks Smails Kor, not sure if you did or not, but a good idea to really thin those clear colors well. Like equal parts thinner and paint, or maybe just a little more paint than thinner. 91% isopropyl works really well. Stuffs just so thick. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  19. I just got my marker in the mail and it is effing awesome!!!! just a little FYI to any of you spies out there thinking about asking @aliens8mycow to make one for you Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  20. MCM, KAD - Thanks fellas Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  21. I just did this Del Mar for a lefty and it seriously may be the best work I've ever done: https://i.imgur.com/Zvqaepa.jpg/ https://i.imgur.com/Zvqaepa.jpg/IMG] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  22. I've rolled plenty of polymer/duracoat putter heads with the finish applied to face, and truthfully I can't tell the difference. I always thought it would affect the feel/sound, but side by side with an off the rack putter, it's indiscernible. At least, to me it is... maybe a tour player would notice - but I kinda doubt it. And a duracoat/ceratoke/polymer finish is absolutely 100% legal under usga rules of golf Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  23. Yeah man, looks great. I think this could look incredible in there, and probably show up around the same time as your insert: Tamiya Models X-23 Mini Acrylic Paint, Clear Blue https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0099WQA36/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_KKPJybSC3ADH5 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
