I have a Callaway X 20 PW with a shaft (Rifle 5.0) broken in the hozel. Believe this is a .355 Taper shaft but know it is bore-through. I’ve replaced or built many irons but never a bore-through hozel. Is there anything particularly difficult about this fix? I’m doing it for a friend and don’t want to screw anything up.
My concept of the process (in steps):
1. Remove old broken shaft by putting screw in broken shaft remains, heating iron head, pull broken shaft remains out in direction of grip;
2. Bevel new shaft to parallel the sole of iron head;
3. Smooth end of shaft with sand paper;
4. Place ferrule on prepped shaft with epoxy;
5. Prep shaft surface and epoxy into place (with bevelled shaft end correctly aligned with club head sole)
6. Let shaft epoxy set for 24 hours;
7. Epoxy bore-through head plug and tap into place;
8. Buff/sand plug flush.
Am I essentially correct??
Thanks in advance for your input,
