Ferrule and Shaft Prepping Tool

The Ferrule & Shaft Finishing Tool is a unique dual purpose tool that is used for finishing ferrules to a high gloss finish as well as prepping golf shaft tips prior to installation. To finish and size ferrules, simply apply acetone to the included lint free cloth strips and spin the ferrule on the nylon rollers, while applying moderate pressure. By replacing the lint free cloth strip with 80 grit sand paper, golf shafts can be spun on the nylon rollers to correctly prep the tips prior to assembly. The Ferrule & Shaft Finishing Tool can be vise or bench mounted and comes with a Plastic Squeeze Bottle for acetone dispensing and 3 each of the Lint Free Strips (GW0101CS) and 80 Grit Sand Paper Strips (GW1010SP)
Ferrule and Shaft Prepping Tool is rated 2.5 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Clubmaker - Fixxin' Stixx The supplied lint free strips are inadequate for finishing. Because of the lint free strips are not lint free, they will shed, when the acetone breaks down the plastic ferrule the shedding will remain on the ferrule. I found that using a simple piece of cotton material (old white t-shirt) cut into strips is better suited. I also found that placing the material in the device taunt, and use more than average pressure gets a better result. Also recommend wearing a glove to spin the club and a towel or glove in the other hand for holding the shaft in-place, the golf club will jump out of the cradle if using a lot of pressure, and it will get warm/hot from the turning friction. Either way, I did not find this device to be a viable solution for ferrule finishing. I will use it to form the ferrule but rebuff the ferrule by hand using plastic polish. I bought this device to avoid having to purchase a bench grinder/polisher with the appropriate ferrule finishing attachm

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not good! Bought the previous model 2 years ago. The one I bought looks longer and heavier than this one. Shaft prep is a joke! Put abrasive sheet in the thing and can't get the shaft to turn against it. Ferrule turning, yea right. Can't turn shaft fast enough to keep the ferrule from gumming up and leaving lint from the "lint free pad". Love The GW, but not this tool!

how does it work

Asked by: brin
Here is a link for the instruction sheet for this tool. It shows you a little bit about how this sets up. http://www.golfworks.com/images/art/GW0101.pdf If you are using this to sand the tip of a shaft to prep it for installation you would install a piece of sandpaper and lay the shaft in the fixture then put light pressure on the shaft and rotate the shaft to sand the shaft. For ferrule finishing you would first use sandpaper to size the outside diameter of the ferrule to the outside diameter of the top of the clubs hosel. Put a piece of masking tape both on the shaft right above the ferrule and another piece right below the bottom edge of the ferrule to protect the hosel from being scratched. Put light pressure on the club and rotate to carefully sand the ferrule down to size. After this you would change from the sandpaper to the felt strip. Get the felt strip very wet with acetone and lay the club in the fixture with the ferrule against the felt pad. Again use light pressure on the club and rotate the club against the felt pad to melt the sanding scratches out of the ferrule and put a shine on the ferrule.
