Lets continue the process of how we build golf clubs on the Tech Van. If you can remember our last post we just finished swing weighting the set of irons to their correct swing weight. Now we can go ahead and assemble the clubhead to the shaft.
We start off by squeezing some of our epoxy. We attach a nozzle to the gun so that we know the epoxy is properly mixed as it comes out. Once we squeeze out the epoxy, we then sprinkle some shafting grit. The grit is used to properly center the shaft in the hosel.
Once it has been mixed, we can then grab the correct ferrule. We coat the tip of the shaft with epoxy and then place the ferrule on the end. We then take the clubhead and push the ferrule down to make sure that the ferrule is in its correct position and the shaft is fully inserted into the hosel of the clubhead.
After that, we then take the clubhead off the shaft and put some more epoxy inside the hosel of the club and then insert the clubhead back onto the shaft. We make sure the ferrule and the hosel have a nice, flush fit and then wipe off the excess epoxy.
You have to make sure to support the clubhead as you flip it around to make sure the shaftband and graphics are centered to the clubface. We must be sure that the shaft is set flush with the bottom of the hosel. Once all of these steps are completed we wait roughly 15-20mins for the epoxy to harden. Even though we give you your clubs that day, we recommend that you do not hit the clubs for 12 hours so that epoxy has plenty of time to set.
