Tools In Progress

Got the G3 Prybabies off to the tumblers today. They will be back in about a week at which point I will name stamp them and then they will go back for heat treat and final finish tumble.

The WingNuts came back from first tumble yesterday and I stamped them and got them back out the door headed to heat treat. We're looking at probably 10 days or so for them to be back and ready to go.

I will be doing a good sized batch of titanium G3 Prybabies in about 3-4 weeks. They are being cut next week.

I have a small number of plain Dot Shots that I will be finishing tomorrow. These were done without the knurling for a super clean industrial look.


The new small shot glass project is underway as I type. Should have the first of those by the end of next week. This is a standard single shot sized vessel. I think this design will tentatively be called the Tippler. ;)

Thanks guys! Oh these are just sweet as all get out. Everything about them from the design to the size to the heft is just right. I couldn't be happier with the progress on them.

alan said...

Nice!! I'm pretty stoked about the smaller ones. Glad to hear you righteously approve of them.

Aaron said...

I hope there are plenty like there were with the bigshots.

Love the new shot glass! Reminds me of a revolver cylinder. A whole new way to play Russian Roulette... :)

Easy Wind said...

Looks like I'm gonna have to take out a loan. You weren't joking when you said that work was gonna get done.

codec said...

The Tippler looks great! But the news of Ti G3's is making me giddy!!!

I'm stoked that its a big batch, I hope for 1, but I dream of 2 LOL!

Mark said...

DB took the words right out of my mouth - revolver cylinder was the first thing I thought too. Very cool! I'll definitely be in for one, nice work, Peter!

Easy Wind said...

Ti G3's!? That is the shizzle!

Peter Atwood said...

Well it has eight flats not six. :P

Yes it is a similar size to a .38 cylinder maybe...

Vito said...

When I saw the picture first, I didn't read the blog yet and my first thought was...OMG Peter's making FLASHLIGHTS....they looked like flashlight heads! Oh well...still looking forward to the Tippler! Off to take out another mortgage to buy Atwood stuff!

OMG. I think I just wet myself Peter. I know too much information. LOL. Those Tipplers are off the hook. I cannot wait. :)

Thanks for everything Peter!!

Rick said...

Outstanding, the design on those is perfect! Thanks for the update too. 09 is still lookin like the best AtYear yet! ;D

Steve Agocs, D.C. said...

Standard sized shot "glass" would be awesome.

enki said...

Are there any metric versions among the first batch of the WingNut? i'm going on vacation this monday for 10 days and it would be a gigantic bummer if I miss this one :/

Peter Atwood said...

Metric will be done last so figure two months.

Talked to the bank today. When they found out what the loan was for, they promised to send the paperwork immediately. I'll be completing the second mortgage application shortly. I have GOT to get my hands on a Dot Shot! They're beautiful, Peter.

codec said...

The more I look at the tippler, the more I like it!

bltkmt said...

Love my Big Shots, really. But any chance of more Superbugs? I missed that one...

mizer said...

Yesss!!! G3 Prybabies!! I cant wait to grab one of these!

Patrick said...

When will you have more Big shots, i just found your work!

Peter Atwood said...

I have a couple dozen plain BigShots with dots left if anyone wants to email me. I'm not making anymore BigShots for the moment because I'm concentrating on the smaller Tipplers right now.

Mirek_ said...

Peter, is any chance to see titanium Nibbles in a near future?
