This was a pleasant surprise... I just got this Cameron Circa 62 #1 for super cheap. By the pics, it didn't look beaten up, but I thought I would need to strip it bare and torch it.

Once it arrived, it was in better condition than I thought - a little steel wool, polish, and black paint fill later, I think I'll play this one as is for awhile.

I am debating on whether to use this knuckle on it. I think it may look great.

The one on the left... I made the one on the right side, just working on these little welds

I saw this on eBay - it looks good with the plumber neck!

Yeah, I bought a few of them on eBay. That seller is top notch. I've been buying putter shafts, little things like that plumber neck m, etc.. from him all year. One of my favorite dudes in the parts market. This conversion is a little weird... I'm sure it's because I'm using it with a .355 tip instead of on a .270 mallet. It wants to set up closed due to the angle of the post. Had to shave about a quarter inch off that hosel post on the futura to get it right.

Well both the wedge and the putter are finally done and painted. The wedge turned out really well and the putter left a bit to be desired. Too many dings and nicks to look very good. I took a side by side comparison of what the wedge looked like before and after I was done with it.

Wedge looks nice! I also think the anser looks good... you could get some of those dings out by sanding/filing it!0

I agree - on both counts!

I think that is a bit beyond my skill set at this time but it's something nice want to try in the future. I'm happy with the color I got out of the putter. I torched just a bit to get it extra golden which helps hide some of the nicks. The wedge turned out better than I could have hoped it would.

So I started my work on this guy today. It's my first time doing this. Any suggestions on how to deal with the milling on the face? It has a bunch of dings and is like to get rid of them. All of them are outside the red area in the middle.Image1482967204.101430.jpg

You should be able to hand sand many of the dings out - don't be discouraged if you sand the s*** out of it with 120 and it doesn't look like a night/day diff. It'll continue to look better and better as you progress to the higher grits and polish.

 

Of course there are some doozies in every project putter that sanding just won't help. I like to hit these with a hand file before I even start sanding. You can get a solid 4-Way Bastard Mill file with a comfortable handle for like

 

What are your plans for this putter? Torch/black oxide/restore to original? Either way we need to call attn to the insert. Can you pop it out? There are plenty of videos on YouTube that show guys popping odyssey inserts. If it's Cameron style with back screws, that makes it even easier.

Btw, other than a light sanding, I'd generally leave the face alone. You'll sand the face milling off trying to get it uniform.

I see an "elastomer" ring around it though - it'd come out. And I don't know how it could be that color and be the same metal-I'm assuming the body is some flavor of steel, and I'd bet the insert is anodized aluminum.

It's milled into the face so it doesn't come out. It's just a different color but the same metal.

doubt that it is mulled into the face.  Pretty sure that it is an insert that will need to be removed.  

 

I did a quick google search and most people agree that it is an insert.  If you totally screw up the insert,  there are places you can get a new one: https://www.spryevo.com/shop/insert-store/taylormade/

 

It is probably aluminum;  Boiling seems to be the preferred way to remove inserts that might be damaged by torch heat.

I try to avoid these...

 

If boiling doesn't work, you might try torching the back side to loosen up the insert.

 

I agree that spryevo is the guy for aftermarket inserts.

 

If the milling isn't super important to you, the entire face could be leveled out as-is (with the insert in place) on a belt sander.

 

If you plan to torch it for color, the insert needs to cone out anyway though.
