After months (that felt like an eternity) of lusting after and coveting almost all of Dave Billings "Machine" putter designs, I am finally the proud owner of one. I was able to pick this up from a local shop that has a deal with Billings and carries a solid selection of Machine models. IMO, Dave is one of the best in the business and, even though I'm posting this in the DIY refinish thread, I wouldn't dare f with this beauty... I just didn't want to start a thread about how happy I am to finally get my hands on one of these.

Here's the finished product on that fastback that I went about a dozen different directions with before deciding to torch past purple and beadblast to finish.

After looking through these, I'm torn about getting my Dad's old Ping Anser redone via Ping. I would actually try to play it if it fit me, but it still has the original shaft and grip my Dad had on it from 40 years ago...

It's not the ones with the "correct" origination name on it... I can't remember if the "originals" were from Phoenix, or wherever. His came after that group.

Gotcha. I remember my dad having an original that was worth something. Found out right after he'd either lost it or traded it in. Can't remember which it was. Either way it was folly of a very high order.

Nice! Ping restoration is pretty inexpensive, but call them first because sometimes they wont refinish if it's really old model because they don't wanna risk any damage.

When I talked to them we spoke of only re-shafting, which this model has a ball bearing holding the shaft into the neck, so they'd drill it out and put in the new shaft.

@McaseyM & @RookieBlue7

 

I saw in the thread about Mcasey's TPM resto's that RB7 suggested blasting prior to torching. The logic behind the recommendation is sound; that beadblasting will cost you some of the color you achieve thru torching. But I have a question on this.

 

I've noticed that when I've beadblasted prior to torch work, there's a tendency for the torching to become very splotchy and uneven - I'm wondering if my media embedment is too high or I'm not waiting long enough.

I have it listed for 269 on eBay. Would take 250 for it from a fellow MGS member. Plus, no eBay fee :)
