    Hey Guys,



    I hope everyone is having a great day image/smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' /> I wanted to share pics of a MACHINE Custom Damascus Work In Progress image/smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' /> This MACHINE features a Damascus M1A Fixer Head and a Damascus Dot Pill Cut Plumber Neck image/smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />



    On the Pill Cuts on the Sole and the Pill Cut on the neck we used a Ball-Nose End Mill to Highlight the Damascus Grain.



    We milled a second pocket in the cavity to decrease the weight. One the Medallion is installed, you can't see the second cavity.



    Still alot of work to do to this putter, but she is coming along very nicely.



    Enjoy

    I don't like to post pictures prior to being completed for fear of bad mojo, but Dave has been playing catch-up in the shop with the new mill setup and the move and I have been excited about this project since its inception almost a year ago.



    Dave, Chris, and I started on the idea of these putters almost a year ago. I don't know if he has done anything quite like them before, but I do know I hadn't seen a Machine in recent history that had this look.



    I wanted a copper putter because I love the feel, but I always worried about the softness of the material. I wanted something copper in feel, but more resistant to dings. After talking to Dave and Chris we decided to try an insert putter. I know it won't be as soft as pure copper, but with the VMG I felt it would be close while giving me the durability of stainless. Dave took the idea and ran with it. I must say the results are well beyond my expectations!



    Here is the picture of the welded hand bent hosel prior to final polish and finish. It will be flamed with some of the areas bead blasted to keep down glare. It will have a CNC grip with a Frequency Filtered shaft. The other will be a modular center shafted M2A Converter with the finish Dave chooses, standard grip and shaft.



    Dave and Chris both made this one of the coolest projects I have ever been involved with! I would like to thank them both for listening to the endless stream of ideas and modifications I pelted them with and turning out two of the nicest putters I have to date. "To date", Dave, so get ready!

    How much does the cavity medallion weigh in the various materials? Does it help to increase MOI/heel-toe weighting? Or is it purely visual?



    While I'm thinking of it, what metals are you offering putters in these days?

    Thanks for your interest! The Medallions weigh 3 grams in standard aerospace aluminum alloy, 8 grams in steel and Damascus, 9 in brass and 12 grams in copper.



    Since the alloy is lighter than the steel it replaces (if it were a solid thick face), it does decrease the weight in the center (cavity) and increases the relative proportion of weight in the heel and toe portions, increasing the MOI. That's not a big difference (net 5 gram change), but when you add it up with other features such as our South Beach Cuts (15 grams in the base head and up to 25 grams in back flanges), Heavy / Beefy flanges and bumpers, and optional Tungsten weights in the heel and toe sections, among other custom options, these improvements combine to become even more significant.



    When you use steel the weight is virtually the same (unless you are looking at the triple cavity in the latest Damascus putter above, which is lighter due to the additional pill cut). Copper would make it heavier in the center.



    Certainly these options can be seen as aesthetic also, and they offer a new level of customization and personalization (including being able to stamp or engrave your name or logo even. Also for those that want to add your name, but may decide later to sell or trade, you can simply add a blank medallion, or the next owner can swap them out and personalize his or her own. Finally, to give you a preview into the future, additional custom options will be available that attach in place of the medallions and add new alignment and weighting features....



    We currently offer our putters in 303 Stainless, 1018 Carbon Steel, Aluminum Bronze, Billet Copper, Custom Forged Damascus and various components in 6061 and 7000 series Aerospace Aluminum Alloys. I'm also experimenting with some Mokume and other more exotic materials for both putters and our new Green Tools and Ball Markers for 2012...



    Thanks again for your interest!

    Mark,



    Thanks for the post and very kind comments. The pleasure has been all ours, as with all your builds, and all the great calls texts and emails. The best part of this site and community are the friendships we've made here, and are still making seemingly every day.



    Thanks for trusting in us with your ideas and dreams for the ultimate custom putter, and helping us try to bring them to reality. Really looking forward to what you think about these two new beauties!



    All the best,



    -Dave

    You just had to put it out there with the modular center shaft? Really? Thanks Dave!



    I really like the looks of that with the modular center shaft hosel. What does that weigh in at?
  • choeppnerchoeppner MACHINE Putters Sponsors, Charter Members Posts: 10,298 ✭✭
    Hey Mark,



    This one weighs in at approximately 350 Grams as pictured image/smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />



    And yes.... We did it with the Modular Center Shaft just to tease you. LOL
