Cleaning Irons: Brass wheel on drill

5 posts in this topic

For years I have used a brass wheel to clean and get the shine back into my irons. Anyone have a better or different technique?

I used to work in a pros hop and I loved refurbishing golf clubs It all depends on the head composition as to what extent of work your clubs can handle, forged - very little, just a cloth buffing wheel and some polishing soap worked very lightly on the buffing wheel. If they are are stainless you can use a redibrite wheel to cut out the main scratches and then the polishing wheel to bring them up,to a shine Not sure where you can the stuff over there, maybe if you know your pro well enough you can ask him Good luck :)

Sponge with a plastic scouring pad on one side, retired from dish washing duty.   Rough side for clubhead and grip, soft sponge side for shafts, all with a little Dawn or Ivory bar soap under a running faucet.

My RTGs I just let rust.   Rust is good. :)

Many modern clubs though you would not want to use even a bronze brush or buffer on, such as the back of the club which can have aluminum or softer materials on it.  The only ones like that I own are Cleveland TA5s, that have a sticker in the cavity that is prone to damage.

I wouldn't use a brass wheel even on my old chromed clubs.   Won't it dull the shine?

Tell you what I use for tar on the car, sharpie marker ink and so on.   WD-40.   Not so hot as a lubricant, but as a solvent or water repellant, A-1!

BTW, those marks are good because they tell you where on the face you are making contact!
