    If any of you are interested in the JET tool JK is using.



    There are a couple of the 6" version on EBAY at $219 down from 279.





    Check it!


    You were right!

    Joe,



    just joined the site.I ama clubmaker from Scotland working part time in thailand.look at www.4gea.com most days.





    Is is easier to put the club in the vice? I find it easy to put the drill in the vice and hold the club in gloves and polish etc in that position.





    lots of good infor here,\\\





    thanks

    The best is using a bench grinder and keep exchanging the wheel as needed! but i don't have enough room in my shop.

    Nice looking work Joe. Sure wish you were closer to me and check out my swing and see what shafts and adjustment my clubs need.

    Joe,



    Is there a special padded front wheel that can be purchased for these bench grinders?

    You need to look at the whole post again. The one I use is a rubber padded wheel.

    Joe,



    I saw the whole post. I have a similar grinder in my shop at home. The front wheel on mine is a hard rubber. I was wondering if the rubber padded wheel that you have is something that I can purchase on my own to install on my machine?



    I would assume that a softer padded wheel would make it easier to blend the grind smoother.



    Thanks.

    I use the flap wheel or finishing wheel to blend.



    For shaping, you need the harder rubber.



    There are a spongy type one but it's to much trouble for to replace the sand paper.



    Yoose,

    my pleasure!

    Hey Joe, I have a couple questions.



    1. What do you use get the sharpie off afterwords?

    2. After polishing, if it isn't perfect, what is the ideal material to round off any edges and what not? I would imagine something like a 400-grit “wet” sandpaper.

    3. I have a bench grinder similar to the one in the picture, and was wondering if it is capable of doing the M grind you did.

    Hi, I did this grind on a bench grinder like yours.

    YES, M grind took a lot of metal, if you add P grind too it is even worst.

    1. acetone

    3. Depends on your skill level.

    Joe,



    i was wondering what the advantage is of using that attachment you have as opposed to the normal wheel that comes on the grinder like in post #47? Thanks.

    Easier to control the movement of your hand , plus Rubber wheel is a must.

    Sorry for all the questions, but ive never done any grinding with that attachment wheel and want to learn. Why is the Rubber Wheel is must? What purpose does it serve? Thanks.

    Just look at the angle on how i hold the club while i'm grinding and how wide is the sand paper, is it possible you can do that and not slipping if it just relying on the normal wheel only? And it gives you more room to move around.



    The slight soft pad rubber wheel will give you a better leverage to push againts it and give you a better feel how hard or light your hands will be.

    Hi Joe, Absolutely great stuff thank you so much. I'm getting my equipment together to do fitting and was wondering if you could recommend a digital bench scale for shop use. Also if sometime you could do an article on grinds for irons that would be great. Thanks again ghud

    I never heard anything good about swing weight digital scale so far, it's to un reliable!



    Stick w/ the old school if i were you!



    Iron grinding is basically depending on the players style swinging the club and his bread and butter shot. Other than that you need to understand what will change and react if you grind certain area...Cosmetically need to be learn also to do some visual trick of it. I would love to write a book of it but I'm not sure if my time allow me to do so now, plus writing is not my best subject at all. image/wink.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':blink:' /> I'd rather talk! image/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=';)' />
