When you say old 3 wood, is it actually a wooden 3 wood or a metalwood 3 wood? Just want to be sure because I know there are still some wooden woods out there. Process is totally different depending on the material the head is made of. If it’s metal, then ideally you would have a vice with vice pads that would allow you to secure the head. You will have to drill out any epoxy that is inside the shaft before you can insert an extractor. Heat the hosel for approximately 60 – 90 seconds seconds with a heat gun. Then, insert the extractor. Turn the extractor and observe if the shaft is moving. If it is, it should come right out by turning and pulling the extractor. You may have to apply heat a second time if it doesn’t break loose after the first attempt. We have a you tube video Jim did years ago on removing broken shafts from hosels. It’s not a great quality video, but it is still relative and shows the proper method.
