Hey there all the shaping and cutting was done with a hacksaw and file. Some basic shaping with a dremel also. The score lines were cut with a file and a metal ruler.

So here we are shafted at 47 degrees x100 tipped an inch stained and ready for a tidy up before clear coat?

If anyone has a good tip for a good clear Im all ears?
Im guessing 2k epoxy would be the best ?

Went with my usual clear not too sure how it will hold up but this is kind of a proof of concept club lol.
When the snow melts I will give it a whirl……..I have a Mizuno block and a mac Im going to give the same treatment too.
Got to say this is fun stuff!

You'll really love how the ball flies off the face with the Gamma Fire.

I really want to do a deep face driver.

I wonder how much distance is gained with frying pans PURELY because it gives the player much greater leeway for hitting UP on the ball.

Im looking forward to trying it John my range is going to be a fun place!

Great looking job, Ian! Do you spray on or dip your finish?

Its Duplicolor clear……..Not that happy with it because it shrinks so much for weeks after application.
I would like to spray them with 2k clear but you don't want to do than inside and you NEED a good mask.
It still too cold for spraying here in Indiana so next project I will wait for better weather to finish.

It's a nice finish. I used to dip mine in MinWax poly.

This Indiana winter sure is making me productive . I have another couple of try outs shaping up we will see if they have any game!!
The larger block is a Mizuno and I will give the gamma fire insert the other is a mac muirfield not really too sure what to do with that. The existing insert looks nice.
The mizuno has really pretty grain I think.
