Hey Guys,

I hope everyone is having a great Holiday Season :)  I wanted to share pics of a Custom MACHINE Damascus that is headed out on tour :)

This is a MACHINE M2A Converter with a Damascus Steel Head, a Damascus Steel Fat Back Nibble Back Flange and a Damascus Steel Disco Ball Hand Bent Hosel :)  The bumpers on this MACHINE have been melted for a softer look.

Dave did a Custom Torch finish on the Head, Neck and Flange to really make the Damascus Steel Pop :)

Enjoy

-Chris

Hey Everyone,

Hope you all had a safe and Happy New Year!  Here's to a great 2012 for everyone!  

Attached below are a couple of photos of a putter I recently modified for one of the professional fitters at Cool Clubs here in the DFW area (@ the new Hank Haney Golf Academy HQ at the Lakes at Castle Hills).  

This is a 3.0 Release M2A Converter with a shaft over Stud hosel and Double Bend shaft.  It had a blade back and spacer, but the owner wanted something new to frame the ball more and increase MOI and  add forgiveness.  So I swapped out his old flange and spacer for a new Flush Cut Heavy FatBack with a large StepBack Cut (South Beach Cuts showing through) and "Ground Round" hand grind to round off the corners of the bumpers.  We dialed his head weight in at 360 grams, with lots of user-adjustability up or down if he ever wants to adjust swing weight or change grips or lengths, etc.    Now he's got a great "something old, something new" look to his gamer.  Same look at setup with the main head and double bend shaft, but now a higher MOI frame the ball flange addition to start the new year out with!  

This putter is really light in the center with the South Beach blind bores in the center of the flange of both head and flange, and added weight in the heel and toe from the more massive Heavy Flush Cut flange bumpers, and user-adjustable Tungsten weights in the ports.  

I would like to give a shout out and big thanks to the team at Cool Clubs!  They have an incredible high tech 6-camera HD video capture fitting system in their putter fitting studio at their new facility here, and do a terrific job of fitting putters, including our MACHINE Putters, as well as all other clubs at the beautiful Hank Haney Golf Academy facilities.  If you are ever in the DFW area, be sure to call or email them for a tour or a game-changing fitting!  

Hope you enjoy.

All the best for 2012!

-Dave

That's an awesome grind. Personally, I dislike the look of the back flange but Dave, you sure have made this back incredibly enticing - I just luv the continual lines for the inner cavity and the softness of the heel and toes. Very nice indeed!

Hey Guys,

These billets were cut today from 1018 carbon steel and 954 Aluminum Bronze, and have had the first machining operation performed to “deck and profile” them.  This squares them up perfectly allowing them to fit precisely in the jaws for the next series of machining operations.

You know what this means...  Lots of Customs Coming :)

Thought it would be neat to show how everything starts :)

Enjoy

Hello,

By smaller, what exactly do you mean?  Here are a couple that we have built in the past :)

We can also make any of our heads a Center shaft if you would like.  We can accomplish this by either doing a Tig Weld Center Shaft Hosel, or a Modular Center Shaft Hosel.

If you have seen a head that you like, but wished it was a Center Shaft, we can make that happen for you.

Please let me know if I can help.

Thanks

-Chris

When I find the center of the face on my 303 stainless M1A-Adjuster, it literally feels like a warm stick of butter.  I also use softer balls like the Z-Star XV and Penta TP.  Completely muted sound and a very soft feeling.  I can't compare to carbon but I do have one on the way.  I really don't think it's the metal that contributes to the feel, rather the face milling.  It's safe to say MACHINE's is the most aggressive.  FWIW, I've noticed similar results with the different milling options Byron Morgan offers.

Agree completely with Thaddy.  I have a Machine in 303 Stainless with the deep VMG milling and it is just as soft as any carbon putters I've hit.  Can't wait to compare it to the Mil Spec I'm having refinished with a deep milled face.

Thanks for the post, and congrats on getting an M6!  I apologize our website is not as up-to-date as it could be.  We are constructing a new ecommerce site, and revamping our main site as we speak, so stay tuned!  

Regarding specialized headcovers, we currently have several options, and new custom covers in the works.  The first photo attached shows our standard blue headcover for 2012.  It has an improved full length magnetic closure, and an improved tighter fur that doesn't shed lint like the old sometimes did.  Sitting below the Blue cover is the new Custom White headcover, our initial Limited Edition for 2012 (only 100 pcs. made).  

The second photo attached shows a Limited Edition in Gold that we did last year (not for the faint of heart!).  lol   I think we have a handful of these left.  

Going forward, we are working with a couple of new suppliers, both here in the US to offer even more customization and new, unique and artful designs.  Chris and I will be posting photos as we develop and introduce these new covers, and are eager to see what everyone thinks!  

Thanks again for your support, and I hope you enjoy and make everything with your new MACHINE!

-Dave

Hey Guys,

I hope everyone is having a great day :)  I wanted to share pics with you of a Custom MACHINE that was just shipped to it's new owner.

This is a 4.0 MACHINE M2A Converter with a 303 Stainless Head, a 303 Stainless Plumber Neck and a 303 Stainless Heavy Blade Back Flange.

The Alloy Medallion was first Black Anodized and then had the MACHINE Logo Engraved.

Enjoy

Thanks

Hey Guys,

I hope that everyone had a great week :)  I wanted to share pictures of a Custom MACHINE with you.  We had a customer who really wanted to get his wife something different this Christmas and since she likes golf ( I know....  Lucky Man.. ) He decided a Custom Putter would be just the ticket.

This is a MACHINE M1A Fixer with a 303 Stainless Head and a 303 Stainless Plumber Neck.  The Head and Neck were finished in Dave's Custom Torch Finish :)

As you can see, TONS of custom stampings.  Word we got from the Customer is that his wife LOVES the putter :)

Enjoy
