Hello sirs!
I have a question regarding to ATT Slant top caps. A question was brought to me about the machining of the S2 I am trying to sell. I was wondering if any other "S" model top caps share the same machine marks between the posts as shown on my S cap as well. Is this normal/uniform across the caps or is it unique with the S caps or did I land on a custom design .

Thank you very much!

Hey I have the ATT S1 ... while the razor itself does not have any marks, it does have some machining marks under the top cap ... I don't know if mine are as pronounced or if maybe its the light or even if I have not paid that much attention to it but yes I do have some under the top cap

Looks normal to me! Here is a quick cell phone pic of mine that you can compare:

I don't have the slant but do have a couple of regular caps and both mine have the same/similar markings. I think you are good to go! GLWTS.

Those are normal milling marks, no mill marks are the same. This is mostly caused by the bit itself. The more the bit wears out, the less milling marks you'll see. When they use a new bit, the milling marks are always more pronounced.

I actually like it too. Thanks for the voice of experience Hector!

Is pretty much the same with putter making.  Some guys like stronger mill marks to get more grip on the ball, and other guys like the light mill marks for more pure contact and feedback.  I will just change bits or just put a bit more pressure.  But with a CNC machine, putting pressure is more difficult, and that's  when you see the difference from batch to batch.

In the business we call it Deep Milling.  Just a couple of examples.  Not mine, I don't have pics on my iPad and I'm currently abroad.  Just some examples of bit manipulation.
