Mass Production GB's

Unread postAuthor: Atlantis » Sat Jun 03, 2006 8:03 pm

Whats the easiest way to peel a golf ball? Right now I'm using a hand saw, and due to lack of a vice grip, my hand. Ironically I got hurt by the screwdriver, slight scratch. I need a faster and safer way to do this. Does anybody have any ideas?

a golf ball is tricky to cut, well what do you exactly mean by "peeling" the golf ball? its just a phase im unfamiliar with. if you can specify what that exactly means i could probably figure a way to help you out.

the core of a golf ball is said to fit in 1 1/4" pipe, so peel the shell and get the core.

By peeling I mean removing the outer shell.

Right now I cut a ring around the middle and spilt it open with a screwdriver.

The core fits perfectly in 1.5" pipe.

I usally hate posts like this, but if you give my dog a GB it will have the shell off in ~1 minute. OR you can just get some SDR-21...

Unfortunately my dog is only a month old, her mout isn't even big enough yet. Getting SDR Pipe is easy, finding the Sch80 Sleeve is the hard part. I figured, since I already have a 1.5" barrel and a few 1.5" tees, I should just make ammo for it.

Use a table saw for the easiest and fastest way. You can adjust how much the blade pokes out making it quite easy.

I'd rather buy some 2" sch 80 for $1.50 per foot from Pimpmann22 like I always do.

Edit: I literally just hit a golf ball with my mower and split it open. Hahah! There's your mass production right there!

I ironically just mowed my neighbor's lawn. I thought of a table saw but didn't think of lowering the blade. Does the blade on a table saw go as low as the shell's thickness? 1mm or so.

Yes, table saws are made to retract all the way into the table. This is bad though for the fact that you will start actually using it as a table with a convenient saw built into it. So yeah, you can keep the blade low enough to just take off the shell of the ball.

How would a belt sander do the job? Thanks for the help, but I think I will just make a GB barrel.
