Can anyone advise, that if I remove my scuff sheet will I need to sand the whole bat down or can I get away with just putting a new scuff on top?

Sand to remove any remaining adhesive the. Alight oil/wax let that dry then add a new scuff

I have just started to sand back a 2004ish Kookaburra Belta (simply doing it because I love the profile)

I am having a hard time getting of the tan lines from where the old stickers were, any suggestions?

Hi all,
I am planning on doing referbing my bats over the coming weeks - I normally remove the scuff and then sand the remaining glue away but I have been thinking of trying some white spirit this time - whos used this? I can see from this thread people that have used it say it doesnt effect the wood in anyway but i guess just want a bit more reassurence before i use it lol and how long do you leave it before giving it a light sand before applying oil/wax?

I'm afraid live with it is the best option, a bat that old you'd need to sand it half to death.

yes I have found this while doing my brothers Warsop Bat from 2004. I have contacted Warsop and they are sending me some older stickers to cover them. Which was very kind.

Yep, used white spirit every time with no issues. I left it maybe a few hours to make sure the bat was dry again but you can tell quite easily if it is back to normal or not.

Yeah white spirit is fine to use, crack on!

Once I've used it to remove the residue I sand within minutes. It evaporates so quickly you can see it happening so you'll know the willow is dry again.

3. You are likely to have glue residue left. There are a number of ways of removing this. You can use white spirit on a clean cloth to rub the glue off, use a Stanley knife blade held at 90 degrees to the face of the bat to scrape it off, or use an electric sander to sand it off, although this does clog the sandpaper.

4. Sand down the entire bat, using increasingly finer grades of sandpaper to get the perfect finish, and if required, apply a layer of wax and buff to a finish.

I have a different approach to these two steps that works well. After removing the scuff sheet, I apply a generous coat of linseed oil on top of glue. After about 10 to 15 mins, the oil soaks the glue and it is not sticky any more. I then take an old rag and wipe the bat vigorously. It does the trick for me. This also leaves a very thin layer of oil on the bat, which I leave it as it is for a couple of days and then go for the next scuff sheet.

The clear advantage I see is that I am not introducing any new materials (spirit or other chemicals) to the bat and neither am I taking off any wood by sanding it down. Works for me.

I use linseed oil to remove the glue too. I leave it a while then scrape off the residue with a scraper. Works a treat.
