I am interested in a used iron bending machine and shaft puller. I like to tinker with clubs but the club is closed down. Was looking to setup something at my home.
Just a suggestion. If you don’t have a lot of space there are ways to minimize the space you need. For example, some shaft pullers can be stowed away and inserted into your bench mounted vise when needed rather than the version of shaft puller that bolts to the workbench. A bench top drill press for reaming taper tip iron heads to parallel – if you need that – also saves space. Rigging a way to fasten it to the bench when needed saves even more space. Using air to blow on rubber grips means you don’t need a drip pan, etc., only a rubber shaft clamp for the vise and a small portable compressor. Less messy too. (Use masking tape if blowing grips on. They won’t slide on if you use double sided tape.) With Winn type grips, use rubber cement – put in grip with dowel and the little brush to put it on the tape – it slides right on with minimal dripping. Watch out for squirt out of grip end hole if you use too much. Etc., etc.
Golfworks has a good inexpensive shaft puller: https://www.golfworks.com/value-shaft-extractor/p/gw1112/
I built this one shown on Tutelman’s website: http://www.tutelman.com/golf/measure/shaftPuller.php
this will get you by for a swing weight scale: http://www.leaderboard.com/SWINGWEIGHT
a drip pan can be made out of an old bleach bottle. I used compressed air for myself, mineral spirits and double sided tape for customers.
unless you’re going to get involved, don’t invest a lot. It gets expensive.
Thank you so much for you suggestions. I did not even think of a portable compressor. Any decent one you recommend?
Less is more and no mess.
I adjust mine to 40 psi. You want a compressor that will go to 100 psi. I prefer a 3 gallon tank. You can use it for other projects around the home. Oil-less is fine. the porter cable is 1.5 gallon will be fine.
thank you! went by 3x to home depot but the lines were so long to just even get into the parking lot :).
Looks like you’re in Hawaii. Home Depot has a porter Cable compressor for $80.
Harbor freight is my choice on the mainland.
You can pick up the parts for the tool at most hardware stores or golfworks has one also.
Thank you ! Will look for it. Is there a particular PSI I am looking for ? I saw a CMB15 oil-less model.
