Default Frankenstein!

Anyone know how to separate Demarini barrel from the handle? I have an Evo with a broken handle and a Creature with a broken barrel. Looking to make a Creevo(?), Evature(?), meh Frankenstein bat. I've seen the Freakarini and a Juice and Juggy combined so I know it can be done but have no idea how to. Obviously they can be stuck together with golf club epoxy. Any help is appreciated.

And yes, I know it won't be legal, relax. It's just for fun as I don't see any combo replacing my Fu Dawg and I don't think the Creature handle is long for this world anyway.

Nothing wrong with salvaging a frankenbat for bp. I am no help on this one but good luck.

Cut the knob off the handle. Remove end cap. Boil in water for an hour then tap handle thru barrel. The bitch will be putting the knob back on after reconnection. And use 3m marine apoxy.

Knob isn't a problem, it's still attached as both bats were broken off. Boiling for an hour is the part I'm missing, 15 min wasn't cutting it, thanks! I'll post pics after I'm done, it promises to be horrendously ugly. The Creature went through a fence and the red handle is all scraped up, the Evo barrel has major paint chipping, maybe I'll sharpie some stitches into it and drive 2 lag bolts in somewhere to give it the true frankenbat look.

Screw I'd almost say swing it lol. Not sure of the combo being good because they both were just decent bats but looking forward to pics

Yeah I don't think it's going to be a derby bat by any means, it's even going to be 33" Just a fun project to laugh at.

Now that sounds like a cool combo. I didn't even think of doing a different combo, that opens up some different options with a F98, Recoil, or NRG handle....
