BASICS OF GOLF CLUBMAKING VIDEO SERIES
Part 1. Getting Started With Golf Clubmaking Video

Contents of this first video on how to assemble a golf club include the tools and materials needed to get started plus handy tips to make sure you always begin your assembly process correctly.

Part 2 Test Fitting Golf Components

Contents of this second video will teach you proper pre-assembly techniques. It is always a wise practice to check the fit of the head and shaft prior to building your golf club.

Part 3 How To Read Golf Shaft Trimming Instructions

Contents of this third video will explain how to read and understand tip trimming tables so you know how properly tip trim a golf shaft.  With golf shafts becoming more and more expensive, one tip trims the golf shaft (if any is required) so the shaft plays the flex as the manufacturer and you don’t make an expensive mistake.

Part 4 How To Tip Trim A Golf Shaft

Contents of this fourth video will demonstrate how to tip trim steel golf shafts and how to tip trim graphite golf shafts manually.  For a steel shaft, we are going to use our tubing cutter; the preferred method when cutting a golf shaft by hand. However, to safely cut a graphite or composite golf shaft, we will use a rod saw blade to avoid cracking or splintering what could potentially be a very expensive shaft.

Part 5 How To Properly Abrade or Sand a Golf Shaft Tip

Contents of this fifth video will demonstrate how to properly abrade (prep, sand or roughen) the tip of a golf shaft manually. For both steel and graphite shafts, we are going to use different grits of sandpaper using a shoeshine method. When done properly, this will allow a proper surface for the epoxy and not cause damage to the shaft at a later date.

    too slow! – all videos should start with a 3 second Heriko title and then be edited for the modern attention span – i.e. get to the point as if time in a video is made of pure gold. All videos shouldn’t last more than 45 seconds to 1:30 for what you have been describing. People surf the web at light speed and superfluous dead air or a snail paced demonstrations are extremely annoying.

    Craig:

    We are trying educate customers rather than simply demonstrate a procedure. This is why is takes longer to explain something rather than just do it and hope the viewer understands the procedure. If not, the viewer is only going to scratch their head and have to continually replay the video.

  4. Curt says:

    Jeff,

    Thanks for the great videos. Is it safe to tap the butt end of a graphite shaft on the ground to fully seat the tip into the hosel the way you did with steel shaft in the video? I ask because I usually have a tough time getting that last 1/4 inch to seat and would not want to risk damaging the shaft.

  5. Jeff Summitt says:

    Curt,

    You can certainly tap the butt end of a graphite shaft on the ground. Just make sure not to use too much force as well as attempt to have the strikes perpendicular to the ground as possible. This will avoid any potential damage you can make to the shaft.
