Shop Uses For Old Golf Equipment
Bill Shipman, Elwood, Ind., found several uses for old golf equipment around his shop.
“I needed some anchor stakes for my portable satellite dish, so I made stakes out of old golf irons by cutting them down and sticking them into the ground,” says Shipman.
From there he has found several uses for clubs such as making garden tools from old clubs by replacing the heads with small garden tools like hoes, scratchers and drip cans. He also uses the heads from irons as hooks and hangars in his shop.
“I made a grinder holder from an old pitching wedge. It already had a groove in the club that fit my hand held grinder.” Shipman also uses old club heads as different hangars. “I just cut a small piece of metal and either drill a couple holes or weld the club head directly to the plate with the head on where I want it mounted.”
He also uses old clubs cut down as ground markers for underground pipes or cables.
Even old golf balls are used in his shop. “I drill a small hole in the golf ball and drive the file’s pointed end into the ball. No glue neeeded, they stay on fine. The golf ball really fits your hand better than normal file handles,” says Shipman. He notes that some balls have liquid in them and may squirt a bit when drilling.
