Here's the signature series model 9 that I was thinking about doing.

Any more ideas guys? I heated up the back insert and the badge and back insert came out but I can't get the face to come out. Tried boiling it and prying it out, didn't work. Tried getting my heat gun on it for a good 7-8 minutes that didn't help either. Image1483046147.192381.jpgImage1483046197.343364.jpg

My thoughts are: the insert is probably not going to come out without destroying it.

 

You could heat it and pry it, then talk with spryevo about a nice carbon fiber replacement.

 

Or, leave it in and sand the whole face down (which would remove the milling, but at least get it all even again).

There are also a lot of companies that can mill the face for you if you really want it redone after you get it flat. They don't charge a lot either.

Here are a couple of the things I've been working on.

 

I'm thinking about getting an insert cut for this N2 detour out of GSS or 303 and creating the "bore thru insert look"

Also - I shot at the range with a buddy last night. He's seen many of my putters and we decided to torch the chamber/Cylinder on his judge public defender. It was nerve wracking. Can anyone say residual lead/carbon/gunpowder

Well here's where I'm at right now on my first refinish. (Please pardon the old glue that I haven't cleaned out of where the insert and badge go)

I'm thinking of a darker finish our torching it and putting one of the milled copper inserts from spryevo into it. What do you think?

Looking good!!! This is where I usually get in a hurry... make sure it's as perfect as you can get it before finishing, and be sure to degrease it before torching. If you have to handle it, hold the tip that fits inside the shaft or your fingerprints will show.

 

My vote is to torch it! If it's stainless steel, gold or bronze is probably as dark as it'll get without a ton of heat. Carbon steel will quickly go past that and turn purple, blue, and then black.

 

I use a block of wood with a hole in it, and flip the head upside down so it sticks up to torch. That one has a short neck - might want to use a 6 or 8 inch piece of shaft to get it up where you have room to work with it. If that doesn't make sense, I can post a pic.

Stainless can get purple and blue even with propane. It just takes patience.

I'd give it a whirl, I'm just not even sure where I would start. Regardless, that is incredible work. Seriously well done.

Holy schnikes that driver head is sweet! Is the lettering stenciled paint or a decal?

No shame in that! It's so clean, and impossible to paint unless you have a robotic/computer painter or laser engraver. Looks great, bombs away!!
