I've been trying to figure out a cheapish graphite shaft pulling setup for a while. I came across some videos on Youtube (here and here) by a guy who built one from a couple of vises. He's from the UK, so he says it cost less than &20. I picked up the vises for about $20 a pop at the hardware store. I cut out the aluminum cuff myself, but I'm going to get one from Golfworks here shortly, and had the torch and shaft vise collar already.

It's a pretty simple design, and it works a charm, so I thought I'd share it in case anyone is interesting in making one themselves.

Looks ideal for the at home tinkerer that is only going to do a few shafts. Was thinking about how to do something like this last night; have a shaft or two I want to pull the head/adapter to try in my 3w.

@cnosil for sure, it's a low-volume set up. Having used it a few times, on iron heads and a driver adapter, I'd say it's a good and relatively inexpensive option for the hobbyist.

Certainly it's less expensive than a shop shaft extractor tool, and cheaper than a ruined shaft too. Speaking of, maybe I should factor the shafts I've ruined attempting other methods over the years...that would push the total cost up a bit 😬

Nice bench!

@berkeleybob thanks! It came to me from my wife's grandparents' retirement house in Tenants Harbor, Maine by way of my father in law. It's old, but my wife doesn't know if it originally belonged to her grandparents, or if it came with the house when they bought it. In either case, they got that house in the late 1960s or early 1970s, but by the appearance and construction, the bench seems to date quite a bit before that. As I'm typing, my wife is telling me to add that one of the Bean family (of L.L. Bean fame) lives there now.

That's all I can say about the provenance of the bench, but I do enjoy working on it!
