Awesome job with that!

Enjoying seeing some of these refurbs and it has given me the urge to start sorting out my own bats. Bought sander, bench and clamps and cant wait to get going with mine! will post some pics up of my bats hopefully coming back to life!!

Wow, fabulous job. How does it tap?

If you don't mind me asking, where did you source those Newbery Uzi stickers? Thank you.

It is about the use - you can actually reach to this point if you persist with one.

Maybe I need to contact someone to confiscate all of your bat except one? ;P

Are you saying you'll never get a bat to match your username ?  :D

Another season of use and abuse down and this bat is in my possession once again, this time with a rather nasty split down a shoulder.

I'll get some pictures tonight and update as I go, but I fear it may have got to a stage beyond repair!  :(

yes please do. do you work with your hands for a living, I presume it's not true you are an insurance assessor who goes round denying people new carpets when a pot of paint got tipped on it...that sort of thing.

you get my drift.

youre far too nice to be one of those people.

Salute to the immense patience required to do this job, a crafty batsman's asset I guess...

Okay so here it is, back with me again for another possible repair job.

I'll upload these in the sequence of events as I did things, so you can discover things as I did!
As you can see it's had some more use, it's definitely had a few runs through it!

Unfortunately there's a split through the toe that runs up the back



The slice seems to have opened around the hands



And there's a split through one of the shoulders
