Making my own putter

Recommended Posts

All of this is purely experimental, I am only basing my design on what I think would work and look right, I have no real knowledge of the specifics of putters but there can't be that much too it...

We've got loads of different materials in the stores so, once I've got a design, I can try different steels/SS's etc. I think we might have some bronze out there too..

Don’t leave out soft copper either if you have some available.
I found the bronze a bit “clicky”.
Have fun with it.

Had a bit of time on the machine this morning so have made a start on #2:

The “vise” looks brand new.

So, while I've been waiting for the shaft, I made a start on #2. 

I don't get much spare time on the machine so progress may well be slow but have been playing with face-milling ideas. 

This putter will be carbon steel (an identical 316SS version may be done if this feels good), aiming for around 330g as we have fast greens at my course, removable weights in the heel/toe. 

What's your favourite face mill pattern? All are approx .025mm deep, done with a 3mm ballnose cutter.

Fellow UK dweller here.

This is my favorite face milling but rather than have the circle starting in the center, could you have it starting at the bottom like yes! putters used to do. Was meant to help promote better roll on off center hits.

Love the mallet design, the only issue for me would be that the location you have the hole for the shaft would cause a lot of toe hang. Prefer little to no toe hang for my straight back and through stroke.

As someone else suggested, a curved face would also be cool like with the SIK putters so if you hit it lower or higher on the face you sill get a similar roll.

It would be like the greatest hits putter design!

And when your done. sign me up for one!

Personally my favorite head shapes are the jailbird mini / scotty 5 style ones. Forgiving and can scoop the ball up easy with them

A bit more progress!! All of the machining of the main body is done, just need to put the loft & face machining on. Currently 380g but hoping to get it down to about 330-340g so I can use the weights (yet to be machined). 
I've done a bit of weight removal on the rear of the face and staggered the depth of the machining so that there may be more forgiveness on off-centre hits. Might work....might not. Looks nice though [emoji846]

Really like the look of that look forward to the finished product, and really like the slot for the neck so you could put any one you want in there and even change them out.

@DStar this putter is looking better and better and better.  I would give it a roll if I was across the pond.  Keep up the good work!
