Wow, it's very cool to see how you guys actually insert the insert :)  This one is going to be sick after it gets it's acid bath!

I have a question that may or may not be related to this (and many other designs)... how do you know which metals will work together without having any interaction issues. What keeps them from corroding each other or interacting negatively in some other way?

May be a dumb question, but I do wonder... thanks.

Hello Jimbo,

Not a dumb question at all.  It just takes knowing the materials that you are working with :)  Dave's been doing it for a long long time as he used to do Bronze Casting and even worked at the Shidoni Foundry earlier in life :)  He's a man that knows his metal. LOL

Thanks

Which copper alloy is used on this model? Is it avail or could it be made Lefty with a shorter goose neck?
I also saw a gorgeous Copper M1 on golfwrx, which alloy was that one?

Thanks!

Hello,

The face insert is Billet Copper. 

I can definitely build you any MACHINE you would like in Lefty :) 

If you would like, shoot me a PM with your e-mail address and I can send you some examples :)

Thanks in advance

I'm also like to know that how would you know which metals work together not having any relationship issues.
What will keep them coming from corroding the other or bonding negatively using some other way?

Hello again Sloman, and welcome to Puttertalk by the way. 

To answer your question, I generally know from experience.  I don't mean to brag, but just want to explain myself further.  I've been designing and making putters professionally for 25 years in the industry, 18 with my own company, and if you are lucky, you can pick up a thing or two along the way!  lol

We have done a lot of experimentation along the way as part of the R&D process, and test many materials, processes, and employ numerous technological advancements, methods and techniques to make these combinations work.  I am proud to have been awarded US patents for some of these important inventions in these fields, and also have had a Top-Five player in the world use some of the first multi-material inserts for multiple top finishes on Tour.  Some of these designs were initially banned and later were the first to be allowed by new Rules interpretations that changed the way putters are designed today.  So a lot goes into the process, to say the least.   

I try to design and manufacture our putters to last a lifetime, and I hope they are good enough to be handed down generation to generation, maybe even as prized possessions.  I have my grandfather's clubs right next to my desk as a reminder of the appreciation that comes from those heirlooms, the enjoyment that they brought in their use and in them being passed down...

I hope that helps answer your questions. 

Sincerely,

-Dave

From the other thread.

Remember not all members of the site are fluent in "english" as their first or second language. Translating from one language to another often results in what looks to be poor grammar when in fact it is the result of the way "english" is structured versus other languages. A literal translation does not always read in a way that it is natively used.

In the above case, Sloman is located in Pakistan. That being said for reasons other than the above, he is no longer a member of PT.
