  1. Hoping there are some experienced club builders in the community that can provide some advice. Feel free to skip the intro and get to the issue below if you want...All the golf courses around me are closed due to the Coronavirus pandemic. While this is a bummer to me because I believe that golf is a low risk activity that can be accommodated into the physical distancing concept, I am willing to temporarily sacrifice golf for the greater public health. To keep myself busy and engaged with golf, I have started some long overdue reshafting of my irons. I am not an expert club builder, but I have assembled several sets of irons, with no cataclysmic failures, so I'm comfortable with the process, and have a hobbyist set of club building tools and a decent working space in my garage. I've been doing one iron a day, mostly because I work slow and deliberately to make sure I get it right (I've learned the hard way before). What happened: I epoxied my 9 iron head onto the shaft. Shaft was brand new and the tips were pre-prepped for me. The hosel was very well cleaned out using a hosel cleaning brush with my drill, and a light abrasive grinding bit with my dremel (visually verified). I used Golfworks 2-part shafting epoxy mixed in the correct proportions, with a small quantity of shafting beads. After getting the head on, I let it sit for about 18 hours - usually by this time, the epoxy is cured to the point where I can turn the ferrule and put on a grip. But this time there was still some play in the clubhead (rotating slowly on the shaft), seems like the epoxy wasn't fully cured. So I set the club back down and am currently letting it fully cure. The last few nights have been cooler than usual in California, and my garage is detached with no temperature control, so it could be the cool weather is causing longer cure times. My question is - did the clubhead rotating (guessing it rotated 45-60 degrees) before the epoxy was fully set compromise the bond, and should I remove it and start over? Thanks in advance for any advice!
