Recommended Posts

Howdy,

I'm refinishing another carbon Spalding TPM 12 and want to do a bronzed heat Color and sand/bead blasted finish. Do I heat the head first, then blast, or the other way around? I'm going to Do a green and white paintfill to complete it. I'll post pics once I'm done.

 

Thanks for any help!

Blast it firrst.  Otherwise you'll be blasting the color change and could alter it or remove it.  To get the honey/wheat color it won't take near as long.  Make sure to stop as soon as you see the color change start to happen because it goes from the wheat color through to the blues and purples fairly quickly at that point.

Thanks for the info! That whiskey finish on the

bellum winmore is what I'm after.

Do you usually torch or bake and if bake, what do you recommend for temp and time? The head is carbon steel.

MCasey, if you've got a gas over, you could possibly get it hot enough in it. It takes right at 500 degrees to get it there. That's metal temp (485 degrees to be exact). And that's the average to get the wheats. I've gotten it very light wheat in an electric oven and my gas oven has gotten a little darker.

 

S&B, that putter is stainless under the black. Long as you get the black off you can torch it. The more you polish it, the more colors you'll get and the better they'll show up and look. To get the rainbow effect though you'll have to torch

So I have a question on refinishing...a buddy of mine wants to refinish his irons. He has the Tour Preferred MB's with the satin nickle chrome finish. When stripping that finish off will it affect the club head? Weight? Any damage that could happen? Then he wants the smoke black finish like the rac tp MB's had. Is this all possible to do?

You can strip it, it'll lose several grams in head weight. They'll also rust if a new finish isn't a plated finish of some type. If he wants the smoke black, that was done via PVD (physical vapor disposition). Not many places offer PVD finishes and it's also not cheap if you find one. But it can be done

Check with BOS golf. If they don't do it they can probably point you the right way.

Thanks for checking it, Yup, Big Dog and it feels so very nice! I accidentally let the bumpers get scratched, and am redoing it. I'm actually gonna post it for sale, along with another one, so i can save up for a milled putter.

Did you use double sided tape for the big dog grip or can they be installed on the bare shaft like the iron Pure grips?

You can blow it on with air like the other PURE grips, this shaft was a little skinny, so I added 1-2 wraps of blue painters tape, but you don't need the double sided tape
