    Hey Guys,



    I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving image/smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' /> I wanted to share some pics of a MACHINE that was just completed.



    This is a MACHINE 4.0 M2A Converter with a Damascus Steel Head, a Damascus Steel Beefy Back Flange and a Mosaic Damascus Modular Center Shaft Hosel. The Medallion is a Alloy Medallion.



    The Head, Neck and Flange have all been finished in our Hot Salts Gun Metal Blue Finish image/smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />



    Enjoy

    Hey Guys,



    Hope everyone is having a great weekend image/smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' /> I wanted to share with you one of our most off the wall customs yet image/smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />



    We had a customer contact us looking for a definite 1 of a kind putter. He wanted something classic with a new modern spin on it, something like we had never made before. Dave put on his thinking cap and after a little while him and the customer came up with this modern interpretation of a very classic putter. I know you can all tell which putter this MACHINE pays Homage to image/smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />



    I think yall will agree that this one is completely different than anything we have made before image/smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />



    This one was made by taking 2 M2A Converter heads and milling the backs off turning them into out Meritage Heads. Then milling new ports for the connection hardware to keep the two faces together image/smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' /> We looked at welding the 2 heads, but by going with this setup, the customer can add spacers in between the heads if he chooses image/smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />



    Right now, this MACHINE is at 370 Grams image/smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />



    This MACHINE is very solid feeling, sounds great, rolls the ball great and is really forgiving! It is perfectly face balanced and is super easy to line up!



    There is still lots of finish work to go on this MACHINE image/smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />



    Enjoy the pics image/smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' /> I look forward to hearing your thoughts and Dave is excited as well image/smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />

    Hey Guys,



    Thanks for all the great comments image/smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />



    I wanted to share a couple more pics of this unique creation showing some more options we made for the customer.



    The first 2 pics pic show this MACHINE with a custom spacer



    The second group of pictures shows this MACHINE with a half offset plumber neck. Using it in this configuration it gives the user a Center-Shaft Configuration and gives equal onsets for each facet of this MACHINE.



    Enjoy

    I hope everyone is having a great week so far. I wanted to share pics of a Custom MACHINE that was just completed and is getting ready to head to it's new owner image/smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />



    This is a MACHINE M1A Adjuster with a Billet Copper Head and a Hand Bent 303 Stainless Long Neck. The Head has been given a light antique patina and the neck has been torched to match the head.



    Enjoy the pics and let me know if I can help.

    Hey Everyone,



    Thanks for all the great comments. We are starting to mill new models, which is really exciting for us. Its been crazy busy at the shop, as we are also busy getting custom orders and all the MACHINE Golf Club Founding Member goodies out before Christmas (with a few surprises image/smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' /> ).



    We are also starting to build new putters for the 2012 Tour season. Attached is one of those, a special Mosaic Damascus with matching Heavy FatBack flange and our new Modular Center Shaft Over neck. Chasing MACHINE dreams.... Hope you enjoy the photos. Thanks,



    -Dave

    I ordered this putter solely based off of the glowing reviews on this site, having never touched or rolled - or even seen in person for that matter - a Machine putter. So, there was a bit of risk involved...I normally agonize over putters.



    After 3 days with this - I get it! It's easy to see why you almost never see used Machine putters for sale. This thing is amazing! It looks unreal (pictures do not do it justice), is the softest stainless steel putter I have ever used, and rolls the ball like a champ...no skipping, jumping...just pure roll.



    My biggest surprise is the grip. I normally tear the stock grips off right away and replace them with GripMaster wraps, but to my surprise - the Reverse Arch grip feels incredible natural and took me no time to get used to. I think they are onto something here.



    For those considering ordering a putter...Dealing with Chris was great. He returns emails pretty much instantaneously. Libby from the office was a sweetheart also. The putter itself took - to the day - exactly as long as they said it would to build.

    Thanks very much for the kind comments! I, and all of us at MACHINE are so happy when we receive comments like yours. Its not always easy being a smaller maker without big box distribution, especially when people want to try before they buy and naturally ask where they can find our putters. However, making them almost all custom, one at a time as we do today presents serious challenges to the old golf distribution model. And admittedly we weren't always able to keep up nearly as well when we farmed out production to contract mill shops. Things are definitely improving now that we are milling them in our own shop, and we plan to lower production times significantly as we go into 2012. Anyway, I am thrilled you had such a good experience, and are liking your new MACHINE and rolling it so well. Thanks again for sharing, and for all your support!



    Sincerely,



    -Dave

    Hey Everyone,



    Here's a photo of a custom MACHINE putter that recently shipped to its new owner. Simple, clean and all business! This is the Flush Cavity design M1A Fixer. At 370 grams in this customer's setup, this is a great weight for shorter putters, belly putters, or backweighted models, for example. Of course, we can mill these to spec. and reduce or add weight to meet whatever your individual needs and tastes my be!



    Hope you enjoy.



    Thanks,



    -Dave
