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.

The GolfWorks 1" x 30" Belt Sander is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handy tool 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything is great The tools allow me to do what I have to do for repairs. The ferrule kits are very useful and provide a selection to blend the head to the shaft. Love the belt sander

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not good for ferrules 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very useful One of the most used tools in my shop. Besides Golf Clubs, I use the sander, when building custom fishing rods, fishing reels, guns, reloads and computers.

I just set up this sander as a hobbyist to work on golf clubs. The main question is do you recommend using the machine without the table when turning ferrules so the club head can be turned freely without interference from the table?

Asked by: Golf Gnome
I use a 1" x 30" belt sander at home and with the ferrule turning stand I build for myself I can leave the table installed when turning ferrules. The driver gets a little close but I am still able to do it. There is no problem with removing the stand for ferrule finishing.

How will this machine work compared to the 42" for finishing ferrules? The picture makes it look like it would be difficult to maneuver the club around the motor to do a good job.

Asked by: Rick
Really a matter of what you are used to. The 1x30 can do ferrules and some prefer it. The 1x42 does give you more space. Personally, I prefer to use the 42, but can use the 30. Others prefer the 30 because it is smaller. Functionally, the 1x30 will do the job and most smaller shops, garage shops tend to go with it. We sell 6 times as many 1x30's as all the 1x42's combined. The price difference is obviously a factor as well.

Could this sander be used for iron restoration just as well? With a 1x30 220 grit or so belt I think it would work well for removing dings, dents and bag chatter.

Asked by: Sir_JJB
Personally I would say it would not work very well. It is just to small to be able tor maneuver the clubhead the way you might need to. I might depend on where the nicks and dings your are trying to remove are located.

Is this stable enough for a table top?  Don't have a lot of space to work with  but don't want it mounted to the table either 

Asked by: Chris B
Yes this will work fine on a table top. I have used it that way without any problems. It does not need to be mounted.
