While your clubmaking operation may be in full gear at this time of the year, one thing you want to check on is your golf clubmaking epoxy.  Believe it or not, you are relying on its’ strength to form a long-lasting bond between any club you build or repair for your customers.  But when was the last time you checked how old it is and whether it is still effective?

Most clubmakers will assume that epoxy for golf clubmaking is good as long as there is some left in the bottles.  But that is not entirely true.  Many epoxies have shelf lives just like milk, bread or that spinach that is starting to wilt in your refrigerator.  After a year, they start to lose their strength.  After two years, I wouldn’t use it for anything golf club related.

No matter how organized your shop may be, I doubt you will know immediately when you last purchased it by looking through old invoices. When you receive a package with your epoxy, the first thing you should do is take your Sharpie pen and mark the date it arrived on the bottle or container and it will always be there in plain sight.  If you have the small one-job packets, don’t worry, these have an indefinite shelf life.

Buy in quantities you will consume
If you buy golf clubmaking epoxy in bulk (or in larger containers), you can save money per ounce or per club you build.  However, if it goes to waste by going past its effective date and you have to throw it out, you really haven’t saved money have you?  I guess you can still use it for small household fixes, but the point I am trying to make is buy enough to last you a full year.

By following these simple tips, you can rest assured that the clubs you assemble or repair for your customers (or yourself) is one less of life’s worries.
