First, thanks again to everyone who helped me with cutting a steel shaft. A few months ago, I had some somewhat amusing failures with cutting a steel shaft. Then I had an amusing failure at applying a grip (I left some of the paper on one side of the grip tape on!), but fortunately a friend caught the error before I posted evidence online.
Now I'm fully comfortable with steel shafted clubs - I even assembled a few recently and have them in my bag.
But onto graphite, where I have my first issue: I knew (from others' warnings in advance, some in my previous help post) to use two layers of masking tape, draw the line on which I'll cut, and then cut (using a handsaw, not the pipe cutter that I use for steel). I can cut the graphite shaft cleanly, no problem - however, it isn't straight.
For some reason, I haven't had this problem with steel shafts. Can anyone suggest what I might do to fix this in future cuts? Alternately, is this something I shouldn't worry about?
(I'm cutting through a few old shaft pulls that I both have and don't care about before I cut down a club I want to use, which will itself be before I assemble a graphite-shafted utility club and then fairway metal, so I'm fine making plenty of practice cuts!).
Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.
