My training and experience is with wooden head 4R's which is a dying trade and have been trained by Jack Baird who was "Class A Certified" by the Professional Club Builders Society. Jack did this type of work for over 20 years in his workshop.
Starting in 2005 and for the next two years, I spent every Saturday in Jack's workshop, learning persimmon and laminated Maple wood 4R's. Jack was one of the last Canadians to take Persimmon /Laminated Maple 4R's training and receive certification from Dynacraft in the middle 80's.
To talk to Jack about his persimmon wood training and certifications and my training,
call show contact info .

I also can check and alter " lie and lofts" on "steel shafted" irons from the 1920's to the 1980's. I own a Mitchell Lie & Loft equipment and was trained by Jack how to use it.

$2.50 per iron to check or check and alter.

I own many water slide decals for wood club restorations and are from the major golf club manufacturing companies.

I own black, white and red clay coloured vulcanized fibre insert material which was the O.E.M. material used in the 1930's, 40's and 50's.

I own Reed & Prince brass flat head cross drive face and sole plate screws which were original manufacturer equipment in the 30's, 40's and 50's.

I have O.E.M. mild steel back screws of four different head designs.

I have and use Barbors 18/3 Black Irish Linen which was used as whipping on many 20's, 30's, 40's and 50's wood club head hosels.
