Billet Dice

Billet Dice are made from billet aluminum and are machined on a 5 axis CNC machining center.  The Anodized version comes in 4 colors: Red, Blue, Black and Purple.  This is a very metallic reflective anodize and looks spectacular!

All Dice are made at a machine shop I am part owner of here in Wisconsin (J Stadler Machine Inc).  Due to this we will be able to start production as soon as we have received funds  Orders WILL start to be shipped in Mid April.  Customer service is top priority so my goal is to get my backers their reward as soon as possible!!  If anyone is in the area and would like a tour of the plant, that can be arranged!

JUST ADDED: "The Rainbow" reward $35 for one of each of the four colors (one standard pip set an one reverse pips set)

"The Rainbow"
"The Rainbow"

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

As of now there are two designs, standard and reverse pip.  On the standard version the holes count as the pips but on the reverse, the squares without holes count as the pips.  See examples below:

 Here is an actual photo of both examples with the three side up:

Billet Gem Dice


These are also made from billet aluminum and have flat back Swarovski crystals mounted in them.  The pictures do not do these gems justice as they have an amazing shine to them in person.

Risks and challenges

The international shipping is a worry but I wanted to make sure my friends from across the pond has access to Billet Dice. If this is successful and I make future variations I will have this experience to guide me.
