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

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)

That ball marker should have taken at least 10 strokes off your game! ;)

It did, but I shudder to think what I would've shot without it 🤡

XStifff-- it's almost finished, I did the paint, and then Stripped it twice cause I didn't like it. It's pretty well complete just need to clean it up a little.

couple of pics, couple of touch ups and it will be complete. Not to bad for the first attempt. The grip I will be using is a Winn blue and orange 1.18. So I went with blue and orange paint.

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.

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.
