Restore patina on Copper Head Golf Clubs


Question #1. I have an old set of very valuable BeCu (Beryllium Copper) golf clubs. I am looking for a method to quickly restore the old Patina look without damaging the painted heads of the clubs? What method should I use?

Question #2. I have an old set of Beryllium Copper irons that require to have the old Patina removed. What method should I use that will not damage the painted heads of the clubs.

I just read your post. I too have a set of beryllium copper head clubs (Golfsmith 1-PW, 52 & 60 W and 3 drivers). What I do after every 4 to 5 rounds is wash them in mild soapy water and then soak them in regular Coke-Cola (1 hour or better - even overnight). It works great. I also 3 or 4 times a year polish them with a product called Nevr-Dull [affil. link to product info on Amazon]. I hope this works for you.

For the copper (beryllium) irons to clean with a bit of finger nail polish remover does the trick! If you are a professional polisher the best method is the rotary polisher mate! See you at the Copper Canyon!

Use White Vinegar. Let them soak in the vinegar for 10 to 20 minutes, and brush them with a soft brush. If you want to restore the shine, you will need to buff them on a high speed buffer with soft compound, and wipe them to a shine.
