    I need a few more frames and mainspring housings to amortize set-up time on an upcoming batch.
    I'll be running this batch middle of next week.

    Damn, 4-6 weeks to early for me, I have a gun in desperate need of your de-horn and golf ball treatment - but not back in my hands yet.

    I'd like to thank those that have responded for their interest. I received more work than I had anticipated.
    This offer is now closed.
    Please remember I need your frame by Tuesday of next week.
    Please ensure that you are shipping in accordance with all local, state and federal regulations.
    If you said you were going to accept this offer and need to back out, please let me know to help with my scheduling.
    If you missed out, no worries. My plans are to offer this service on a semi-irregular basis!

    No button pushing going on here.
    Each dimple is dialed in and cut by hand on a manual mill.

    Makes your work all the more amazing!

    CNC is the standard assumption of the day, people forget before cnc there were people who were truly skilled

    Definitely a great big difference doing stuff on a manual Mill. Watching every half thousands. Currently doing that myself can only imagine how time-consuming those golf balls are.

    I wonder if you have ever done this to a titanium Frame?
