The GolfWorks 1" x 30" Belt Sander
The GolfWorks Belt Sander uses popular 1" x 30" belts, ideal for the small volume shop or hobbyist that can’t justify the 1" x 42" machines costing hundreds more. This Belt Sander is perfect for abrading steel shaft tips and removing polyurethane coating from graphite shaft tips before reshafting heads. Features a tilting work table that makes it easy to set the angle for grinding off through-bore shaft tips perfectly every time. Also features a dust collection outlet for connection to a dust control vacuum system — a big plus considering the dust shaft prep work creates! 1/4 hp, 2 amp, 110 VAC, 60 Hz motor runs at 3,450 rpm. Includes one belt. Extra belts available as noted at left.
Please Note: Additional shipping charges required due to weight.

I used to use a Dremel to prep shaft tips and that worked okay. I got a GolfWorks 1x30 belt sander because I thought it would be quicker and more efficient. It was both. It has speeded up my shaft prep process and made it more tollerable (my least favorite part of the clubmaking process). I recommend this tool for the more serious amateur club maker.
NOTE: I found that by placing a "dustbuster" or my wet or dry vaccuum's hose next to the work area of my belt sander, I was able to control and minimize the dust created by the shaft preparation process.

Not good for ferrules
Reviewed By: NCruz
Excellent for steel shaft prepping. But take care in using this for ferrules. Paired with a linen belt, the machine tends to shift the belt from side to side. Very hard to control this movement.
Also the height of the belt makes it hard to turn the head.
