DIY Bat Refurb
« on: August 14, 2017, 12:25:36 PM »

In a fit of off-season boredom, I decided to clean up my bats for the upcoming season. Having bought a electric sander it made the process far simpler. See below photos of before, during and after!















All up pretty happy given this was my first attempt. Probably need a bit more fine sanding to get them really nice and smooth but otherwise job is a good'un!

I closed/deleted my photobucket account as soon as they did it.

I generally use imgur anyway.

Went with imgur, so hopefully that has done the trick! Ridiculous stuff from Photobucket!

^ Looks great! Did you weight the bats before and after the sanding? How much weight did the bats lose? Or, gain (due to oiling or stickers)?

I did. With everything on they weighed about 2lb 11oz. Completely naked (no stickers, scuff, grips, etc) they weighed in at roughly 2lb 7oz, one was 0.1 oz heavier than the other.
