In relation to the other thread, though this would help with the width debate. First 3pics show width and weight before the edges are planed. The second three afterwards. Around a mm taken off and 0.5oz lost. Edges are around 38mm,.

So, roughly 1mm off the edge had taken 0.5oz. Didn't seem much, but when you're getting down to 102 its quite a difference

102 really is taking the mick. My bat I had refurbed is 106 which I can live with.. anything below get silly...

I wonder how much you lose after a few refurbs?

Thats helpful I believe you always look to maintain a 107-108mm width even if weight rises a bit but you also use thicker handles to compensate for a decent weight balance

Glad it helped. 107/108mm has been the standard for as long as bats have been made as far as I'm aware, so it's not a case of 'weight rising', as std sh bats shouldn't be 102mm imo anyway.  In terms of handles, I make whatever thickness people want. My stock bats will generally have a medium semi oval. Thicker handles well help to balance bats, but there's more to it than just that.

Well someone would disagree with you on that fact mate. Stick a handle in thats really thick and make a 2.13 bat feel 2.7 lol

Nice demonstration by the way.

I imagine it also depends how heavy the handle is and they do vary in weight
