Seeing the latest seems to be using a laser pointer and twanging the shaft. Should it be bent and released in the vertical or horizontal plane? Anyone tried both?

Crap that'll drive you nuts... this is a prime example. I go horizontal. Just easier the way I clamp it in the vise. I see it done like that on Youtube all the time. I never see anyone twang it up and down. Makes me think there's a head on it when I do it my way. Laser pointer and a drill chuck on the end of the shaft with a white board in the background.

I'm not entirely sure but I do believe that this translates to "centrifugal" in RS. :lol:

Here's a picture of the tool that carry&roll put together:

"Here's my home made shaft flo-er! It's a chunk of 1" brass stock that I drilled a .335 hole in one side to fit on the shaft and machined a hole in the other end to fit an old/cheap handgun laser site. Works great and I twang it horizontally."

I'm going to visit John Kaufman (maker of the Club Scout frequency analyzers) in the near future. Hoping to learn a lot. If anybody has specific questions you'd like me to ask him let me know I'll see what I can do.

You are in for a treat, besides knowing his "stuff", John is a real good guy.

Met with John Kaufman today. It was awesome!!! Like Doc says this guy knows his stuff and he machines all of his own parts. Quality stuff.

His Club Scout III and IV were pretty cool with how he added an accessory to measure the torque of the shaft. Also learned about Zone Frequency Profiling - which was enlightening.

Guess who's getting a Frequency Analyzer? This Guy!!!

Not quite sure yet. Which one do you have? The CS4 is probably overkill for me so I'm thinking CS3.

I'm really impressed with the different clamping systems he has. The standard one works nice but he also has a crazy nice Dual Cylinder Pneumatic Clamp for clamping gripped or ungripped clubs.
