Nobody commented on my groove post.
Even though the grooves are not milled in this video this shows ping milling.

Whenever I watch milling machine videos, I think of the Star Wars interrogation droids that was used on the princess leia.

I really enjoyed watching the video.  It makes me wonder why they don't cost more and differentiates these clubs from mass produced clubs.

Those must have come out really recently! Nice. Too nice. I am gonna drop that link on the blade users thread.

I knew you could get heads directly from them, so basically they just added a stamp. Super classy though.

Thanks for the heads up.

Looks like a few different finishes. Don't think it gets much purer than these in raw.

A few companies mill grooves, mostly for wedges where they want the groove form to hold very close tolerances.

You better not hit these clubs the slightest bit fat with the grind on that leading edge.
