I have this John Reuter Jr. Bulls Eye classic 1940 putter. For personal collection though. The head will turn golden colour when oxidised.






And this is how it looks like after oxidising process.

hi bro tituman

yes i do it by myself bro. first, you need to get this 'autosol paste' from supermarket. i think you can find it in the motorcar-care department. get a plastic glove and polish it until the 'paste' turns black and wipe it with dry tissue. the more you polish, the brighter it will get. it takes about 2 weeks or so to get it bright. please bare in mind, after you polish it, try not to touch the head until it is fully oxidised. or there will be your fingerprints on it.

here's the pic of autosol:


dont forget to use plastic glove because the autosol can cause your skin to peel off.

sorry for my bad english. hope you can understand what i mean Very Happy

I think you mean remove the oxidation by polishing?

I prefer to leave oxidized patina as the shiny putter is a bit too bright to use for putting on the course on a sunny day.

I also have a very old bullseye; think I used to have like 4-5 last time but sold them off as I have too many putters.. hahaha

Tks bro Audi, i have the autosol in fact at home but did not use it as after sometime, the oxidisation will come back again. I am afraid that evrytime you used the autosol, a certain amount of the bronze will be rubbed off. I thought you used some kind of liquid solution and just dipped it inside for a period of time. Tks bro

no bro, autosol dont make the bronze rubbed off. have been doing it for months. as for dipping in liquid solution, i think that will be better because the shine will last longer but i still cant find the right liquid. am afraid to experiment using this putter ahahaha.
