Zirconium for Spinning Top Manufacturer
When you have the passion for something and the skills to make it great, you typically get an awesome result. That’s what happened when Kyle Bober, the owner of Wicked Pocket Tops, started hand-machining metal tops.
“I made my first top and posted it in a forum filled with enthusiasts and hobbyists,” Bober said. “People were amazed at how well they spun. I knew I had something special right then and there.”
After that he started experimenting with different metals and designs for his custom tops—all of which are made by hand on a manual lathe.
“I wanted to experiment with exotic specialty metals to make a more valuable product,” Bober explained. “Zirconium has a nice black finish and is about the same density as stainless steel, so I knew it’d be a great fit for my product.”
After a few days of searching for zirconium online, he couldn’t find a reliable supplier with an affordable price. That is—until he found United Titanium.
“Steve McLain got back to me quickly after I filled out a form,” Bober said. “I was blown away by their price and speedy delivery.”
