    Glad you liked it! The paintfill was the most fun. I used cheapie nail polish. It will be interesting to see how it holds up, but since it is not really going to be hitting the ground much it should last. I can't wait to find a new putter to work on!

    Spalding TPM 12 putter project
    Hey everyone, hope you all are having a great weekend. Here are a few pictures of a little project I worked on the last week. Starting point was a thriftstore TPM 12 I picked up for a dollar. Plan was to fix her up and gun blue, gold paintfill, etc. I realized halfway through that there is some kind of finish that won't accept gunblue so it became a different project. I didn't get all the dings out, but it did turn Into a much nicer putter.

    Thank you everyone for the replies! I have been writing a paper all day on the international trade patterns of Monaco and this was a very fun distraction!

    The way I look at it is worst case I have already got my 1 dollar worth just by messing around with it and learning a few things. I will probably keep it around for a while and maybe look at replacing the shaft. I don't think that graphite shaft was ever meant for a putter.  I get a kick out of just finding random stuff at thrift stores.

    Here are a few pictures of a size comparison with a Ping cushin 4 from the late 70's .

    And just for fun the new project I also scored for a dollar... Thinking about a gun blue finish with gold paintfill.

    No markings on the sole.

    It is strange because it seems to be a really well built piece with well done milling but not a mark on it.

    Strange Putter thrift store find. Please help with ID!

    Hello all, I recently bough this putter from a thrift store. It is milled with what appears to be a urethane insert. It has heel and toe weights milled into the face as well. No markings of any kind as to manufacturer or model. It has a graphite Muscle by Fenwick ultralight shaft and a golfpride softie grip. Any info would be appreciated! And by the way, it rolls like crap, probably a result of the weird shaft.

    Adams Redline Repaint/ composite top issues
    I was given an old Adams Redline RPM driver that I am planning on repainting. It says on the driver that it has a composite top, so I am worried about using paint stripper on the club. Would the paint stripper mess up the composite top?

    If paint stripper is a bad idea, should I just use sandpaper to take the finish off?

    I plan on using a three part paint process utilizing automotive paint spray cans and wetsanding.

    I was given the club without a head cover, so I ordered on ebay a new head cover that comes with the removable weights. Hopefully I can get the club looking nice and have a driver that I can use for a few years.

    Finally, Is it worth spending thirty bucks or so on this driver? I don't have an emotional attachment or anything. I am just trying to put together a decent bag for as cheap as possible.

    Thanks for the help and your time!
