I have been completing a few refurbs over the last year and not been taking any before/after pictures so I thought i'd start trying to remember to take some.

This was the hardest so far by a mile. Should have just binned the bat really but the guy loves the bat and says it holding up well in the nets.

Some grain structure on that legend.

I always find it a struggle to remember to take before photosm usually just to eager to get started I guess.

That Legend is a real looker, but the repair job on the Macer looks fab. If that'd been mine it would have been on the fire.

Haven't got full shots but this scrubbed up fairly well, other than some serious sticker shadows.

I had one of those a couple of months ago direct from Uzi himself. Scrubbed up really well and put the newer Uzi stickers on it. You can always get the new stickers to go on it.

Did you just contact UZi about buying stickers?

Great work. Where do you get the stickers from?

Hi mate, the County stickers were off Ebay. I got a local sticker guy to knock up the Symonds ones, next time I'll get him to make the blue a bit brighter on the face side because it comes up nearly black against the willow.

Forgot the before photo, my bad. Bought this bat second hand and had it a few years but never quite got on with the balance and thin handle, despite it being a nice stick. Full strip down, refurb, a little weight reduction and rebind with thicker twine and it's ready for a net:

Thanks mate.
just need to work out how to cut it nicely in my drop saw.
Please dont. That is very dangerous. Use a band saw or router table and slider.

I've only got a steel horizontal band saw, maybe I'll make a jig to hold it and use the table saw.
