Any help?
I've been wondering how to buff out nicks on my Camerons and any help would be appreciated. I dont want to send my putters out anymore so I think it's time to learn...

    I don't think you can remove nicks by buffing alone. You would have to sand the nicks out before buffing.

    I've been using a dremel and some 320/2xx grit attachments that work ok, but there has to be an easier way that I don't know about.

    I use a dremel. Worked good on a Cameron 1.5 Studio Style. Topline was pretty scarred up before I started.

    sanding will work, it takes a lot, but it will def. take out nicks, dremel will work too, just be careful!

    Sanding works. You can use a dremel but you could quickly remove too much metal. You may also want to watch how much you sand off, because you remove weight from the putter. I hand sanded about 5 grams off one scotty I did. Just progress through the grits. Maybe start with 200 or 400 and then work to 1500. Going to take hours not minutes to do.

    I start off with a fine bastxxx file, go to a orbital table sander or table belt sander and finish by hand with scotch brite and steel wool depending on how dull or polished or dull you want it. I now have a table top blast cabinet so I can do bead and shot type finishes as well. I assume you are talking about the top-line.
