Two people have done this now and followed the same procedure. Both times reading this thread I had the same question: Why not just stick the golfball on the leg and then spray the foam into the gap? I would think the foam would fill the ball nicely around the leg. What is the advantage of the two step process of filling the ball and then drilling out the foam?Sep 19, 2017 at 10:49 am #3491915

Ben – in a word, aesthetics :)
While your method is simpler and may lead to a better finished product, it is nearly impossible to gauge the amount of foam needed to fill the ball without it billowing out and all over the leg and workspace. I had used foam in the past that stuck tenaciously and badly stained anything it touched. Based on that experience I choose the method I documented. Truth be told, the particular Dow foam I used on this project didn’t stick well and also didn’t seem to stain. Another reason is that the hole in the ball will need to be enlarged enough to fit the fill tube…I chose to make the hole as small as possible.
I had planned to experiment with the process you described if I ever had to rebuild the feet.
