A cast iron golf ball mould used for the manufacturing of mesh pattern gutta-percha golf balls. The casing has got a locating pin to ensure the correct alignment of the pattern.
The gutta-percha was heated and loosely rolled into a ball shape. The ball was then put into the mould and then placed into a press. The press would imprint the pattern onto the ball and the excess would squeeze out of the sides. The seams are then trimmed when cool, leaving a hard and non-brittle “Gutta” golf ball.
The durability of the gutta along with its lower costs and better play rejuvenated the game of golf.
Gutta-percha is the evaporated latex produced from a tree, mostly found in Malaysia.
