The blaster definitely won't take out dings - hand work for sure there, but how are you getting finish out of the cavities and tight corners with a 6" wheel?

Yeah, it's definitely tricky business. First, my two wheels are 1/2" and 1/4" thickness respectively. The thinner wheel is what I use to reach tighter spots. Also I have a chuck attachment that I can use to put the wheel in the drill, so the first couple of wheels I bought are little stubs now, smaller in diameter than the arbor plates on my grinder, but they work nicely in the drill. I'll use those to reach cavity, backplate, flange -- or I'll use scotch brite if it needs to be done by hand. When polishing, I'll use the bench grinder for most of the body, and use the dremel with a polishing wheel to get the tighter spots.

That's going to look fantastic! Looking forward to seeing. I may have to pick up a putter with an insert this weekend and do something with it. Very cool.

 

 

 

Btw, if you decide you're going to pull the trigger on a blast cabinet setup... let me know. For my first one, I made one out of a Rubbermaid storage bin. I can give some pretty straightforward instructions on making one that'll do the job. If buying one, a place like harbor freight/northern tool is the route to go.

Wanted to see what the group thought of this... my regular golf buddy's 2.5. This was his request: face and weights dark bronze, as close to purple as it gets without crossing line. Body: hi-polish. I think it looks cool and kind of like the concept, but I also think it looks like sort of a half-assed crack at customization/finishing. To just do the inlay and weights... like, if you're gonna do it, then do it... but then again, the contrast looks cool to me...

 

You see my dilemma. Opinions please. I was thinking about picking up a studio style or something and only doing the insert, or finding one of these and doing the same thing.

Yeah... I like it and I don't. Maybe if I had the satin finish back it would look better to me but I'm not gonna go thru the rigormaroll of finding out. Dumped some clear blue in the weights and dots, looks decent to me, buddy will love it. Onto finding an insert putter to pay some attn to this weekend

I'm pretty sure he'll go blind if he games that thing during a Texas summer

First photo is before, then I cleaned it, 3 photos, then I torched it, and then cleaned it, then torched it then cleaned, they didn't look good, then the last few pics are the finished goods. It's kind of a chocolate bronze color, with some purples and and blues and gold colors mixed in. Not bad for my first, second, third, tenth try at it with the same putter.image.jpegimage.jpegimage.jpegimage.jpegimage.jpegimage.jpegimage.jpegimage.jpeg

Yeah looks real good. That thing must've had some kind of pvd finish. I've run into a couple putters that had silver pvd for finish and I always thought that was sooooo pointless (except for rust protection)

I like bright colors so I will probably do something bright, not sure what color yet. I've got the exact same putter that I will be doing something with. I will have that one blasted before hand. Then I will get a copper insert for that and see what I can do with that, but hat will be later in the year I think.

I went ahead and re-did that Sonoma. I liked it at first, but the more I looked at it the less I liked it -- I've found that it's usually worth re-doing when that happens... so I went for a darker final color. I also blasted before torching, and threw some new Circle T weights in there. Really like this one. In fact, it's one of my favorites so far.

Am now working on an older nike and odyssey. I'm really pumped about getting an exotic insert from spryevo.

Yeah man, looks great. I think this could look incredible in there, and probably show up around the same time as your insert:
