I just found this old nameless half moon putter in the attic and decided to do something with it. I have never modded or restored a putter before so this is all new to me. Any tips anyone has are greatly appreciated. If anyone knows what this putter is, let me know.
I plan on smoothing it out and trying to remove all the nicks and scratches. Then i want to try torching it to get a nice dark blue. Posted ImagePosted Image
I started to clean off all the grime and what seems to be a coating, but it's extremely difficult to get into the holes with sand paper or a wire wheel. Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image
More to come as i try smoothing out the nicks and dings!

UPDATE 6/7/17

After a lot of filing and a lot of 80 grit and 150 grit i finally have it down to a workable surface. 99% of the blemishes are out now, and it'll just be working my way up grits to 2000

Still haven't gotten around to the inlets but that'll be my next step.

update! Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image
Finished product! It was a lot of work but i finished it and it turned out nicely for father's day. Kinda had my suspicions on the putter being aluminum and they were confirmed, so unfortunately no torching for me.

I like it, and i like it even more that you're sharing your project.

I'm sure you can get a dremel with a suitable attachment for a filling/polishing job on those recesses.

No idea what putter it is, btw.

Thanks! I was really worried about taking a lot of metal because some of the scratches were pretty deep, but it ended up a lot better than i was expecting.
