  • FYI - Belt Disc Combo Sander - Cheap !

    For those of you thinking about doing some of your own club-building, Princess Auto have their combo belt & disc sander on sale for $110. I have this unit and use it ALL the time. I use a cheap 7" abrasive saw for my approximate first cuts, then use this disc sander to get to perfect lengths. The 1" belt is great from cleaning / prepping shaft tips, and I also have some belts for ferrule turning.

      You don't have to use acetone with a ferrule turning belt, right? I seriously have no idea how to turn ferrules freehand with an acetone soaked cloth and a fast spin. Ends up looking like total garbage every time I try.

        Use the ferrule turning belt to get to the right size.
        Then use acetone ( on a lint free paper towel ) and wipe down the ferrule going in the direction of the shaft to the head, with very light pressure, not spinning. The acetone will make the plastic nice and shiny, and smooth out any mild roughness. For towels, I use the Scott Blue Shop Towels, and cut the into strips.

        Bonus Tip:
        If you do your own ski waxing at home, on your last pass with the iron, do so over top of a Scott Blue Shop Towel as it will soak up all the excess wax. Just pull/drag the shop towel along underneath the iron. When you go to scrape, there will be very little wax coming off and getting all over the floor.

          Thanks for the great ski wax tip! I am going to try it next time I wax my skis. I usually end up with a pile of hard wax on my garage floor after a season of waxing. And scrap it off in the spring lol.

            Ya, and wax scrapings / dust on a concrete floor are super slippery if wearing socks, kinda like a shuffleboard and its saw dust
