Looking for ferrule turning tips (no belt sander)

Recommended Posts

I've turned down ferrules several times with pretty good success.  I usually put a thin piece of tape on the hosel to prevent scratches.  Then use very fine sand paper (parallel to the hosel/ferrule joint) to get rid of the lip at the ferrule joint.  Then use acetone on a paper towel to gently finish the diameter to match the hosel.  Finally, polish with wd40 or mineral spirits on a paper towel.

 

Any different/better tips?  About to finish a few ferrules on a TS3 build.  Here's what they look like now, not much of a lip-

Your technique seems fine.  Cloth sandpaper roll strips work way better than paper sandpaper, though.  

 

To improve the final finish, shoe string polish using cotton cloth and fine polish.  Even toothpaste will do.  Don't use car wax, you need something with some mild grit in it.

With that small of a lip, I just get a rag wet with acetone and spin the club with my hand.

I don't bother sanding at all. Use a rag soaked (dripping) with acetone, and rub firmly from shaft to hosel, turning the shaft every few seconds. Expose a clean part of the rage often, and add acetone each time. I can usually get even very large ferrules close in less than a minute. Be careful not to overdo it. Once it's at the right size, I spin the shaft with the ferrule in the rag, to clean up any loose softened ferrule material. Then, with a clean rag, wipe a heavy coat of acetone on the ferrule, and let dry. This will level out any wipe marks, and leave a smooth, shiny finish. Once dry, buff with a cotton rag.

Toothpaste worked well as the final polish, thanks

Don’t understand the need for WD 40, mineral spirits and toothpaste.  Mine are gleaming after a final wipe with acetone.  

Extra ferrule shine, adds .3 mph ball speed
