Maltby Laser Frequency Machine

The Maltby Design Laser Frequency Machine is a valuable tool for clubmakers to consistently measure shaft frequency of both assembled clubs and raw shafts. Other frequency machines measure reflected light which often results in missed or inconsistent frequency readings. By using a laser as the primary light source, measurements are not affected by ambient or reflected light, shaft color or shaft material. New features for 2008 include: 1) A much improved clutch clamping system that will clamp both gripped golf clubs and raw shafts without changing clamps. 2) A heavy duty base to better protect the electronic components of the analyzer and to eliminate the need for raiser blocks when using on a workbench and 3) Heavy duty laser assembly with a dial locking mechanism to insure the laser lights stay permanently aligned. The LCD screen displays CPMs (cycles per minute) in both 3 and 5 digits for those clubmakers looking for unmatched precision readings. Complete instructions included. Operates on 110 VAC.

FEATURES:

  • Measures assembled clubs or raw shafts from the butt end or tip end.
  • Laser CPM counter measures in 3 digit and 5 digit readings.
  • Laser posts adjust to ensure beam and shaft align properly during oscillation.
  • Average button to determine the average for multiple tests of a shaft.
  • Speed locking clamp guarantees consistent pressure on all shafts for accurate readings from one shaft to the next.
  • Easy to read LCD display.
  • 5" clamp will hold raw and gripped shafts.
  • Can be used to do Zone Frequency testing of raw shafts.
  • ASTM standard 205 tip weight included for measuring raw shafts.

I am confused about the charts for my CPM machine, Do I read the flexesusing the diagonal lines? Is a perfectly matched set read in a vertical position or, diagonally inside the lines?

Asked by: Marc
When you measure the frequency of a club you also need to know it's finished length and it's swingweight. Take the length measurement from the left hand side of the chart and move across the chart to the frequency reading which comes from the bottom of the chart. Where these two numbers meet on the chart put a dot. Do this with all the clubs in the set. The dots may follow the line and reference stiffness that is listed on the chart or the slope and reference for stiffness could vary depending on the shafts in your set and how they have been set up for stiffness and how the particular shaft manufacture references their shaft flexes. If the swingweights are not the same it will change the readings. A 1 swingweight change from one club to the next is equal to a 1 cycle change in the frequency machine, say from 250 to 251. There is no industry standard for shaft flex or a flex progression within a set of shafts. That is up to each shaft manufacture. The stiffness references on our chart are averages that work pretty well in most cases.

I am trying to decide if I should buy this or the Mitchell digi-flex. I must say I did go to the Mitchell school. So my question is why don't I need all the different clamp sizes as I do with the Mitchell. Like the rifle shafts, grip no gripped, tips etc.
