What you can expect with a Mitchell Golf Angle Machine
Mitchell Golf is proud to offer the industry’s most reliable and accurate club repair equipment manufactured in Albion, Michigan. Depending on your preferences and price points, we offer several different models of angle machines to choose from. And whichever machine you choose, it’s guaranteed to be 100% accurate and 100% repeatable.
Some differences in a Mitchell Golf Machine compared to our competitors is that we use precision bearings and rails on our machines. Our competitors’ machines use a rod system. The disadvantage of this is that there is play in the rods, which can cause an inconsistent reading. Mitchell machines also do not need to know what club is registered in the machine — you’ll get the real-time loft and lie reading regardless of what the number on the sole of the club says.
All models accommodate both right- and left-handed clubs. Except for the Steelclub machine, all machines feature precision bearings and rails for 100% repeatable readings. Even without the utilization of bearings or rails, the gauge on Steelclub is 100% accurate. Calibration of the machines is not required unless a scale has been removed. And they all come packaged with an adjustable bending bar, floor mount stand, and sleeve anchors to attach the stand to a concrete floor.
Signature Machine – This is our only model that can accommodate woods and hybrids. The Signature line operates differently from our other models to accommodate the crown of the woods. The face fixture of the Signature model pivots and rotates. All other models use a fixed A-frame face fixture. An added benefit of the face fixture on the Signature machine is that every hosel will be in the same vertical bending position. The loft of the irons in non-Signature models will determine the hosel position when bending.
Any club that uses an adapter cannot be adjusted. However, the Signature machine is still extremely valuable to verify that the adapter settings are accurate. Bonded woods and hybrids can be adjusted as long as there is a 3/4″ non-painted hosel. The Signature machine comes packaged with a standard and a short hosel adjustable bending bar and attachments for woods and hybrids. The top clamp also has a rubber pad to protect the crown of the wood.
Signature Irons Machine
The Signature Irons machine operates identically to the Signature machine. Upgrading the machine to accommodate woods and hybrid is also available. The irons-only version does not include the rubber top clamp, short hosel bending bar, or hybrid and wood attachments.
There are two irons machines in the TourGauge line. The TourGauge digital model is the only digital option for irons in our line. You cannot change any analog machines to digital or change the digital to analog. We offer a trade-in program if you would like to upgrade to a different model.
TourGauge Digital Machine – The machine will display readings immediately on the display unit in ¼-degree readings. A magnet on the shaft cradle assists with registering the steel shaft in the machine. You only need to calibrate the machine when it has been powered off. Simply insert the zero pin into two different locations, one for loft and the other for lie. Simply hit the zero button on the display unit with the locked pin into position. You’re now ready to get to work!
TourGauge Irons Machine – Uses the same technology as the digital but with an engraved analog scale.
For any Mitchell Golf Machine, we strongly recommend securing the machine to concrete. The pricing on the website (US currency), includes the floor mount stand, bending bar, and the sleeve anchors to attach the stand to the concrete. By securing the bending machine into concrete, the only component moving during the bend is the hosel of the club. This allows you to feel how much the club is moving during the bend, providing instant feedback without having to fight the machine from moving.
