Lets see your homemade golf tools for clubmaking and club fitting. I've built my own spine finder and hydraulic shaft puller, but I would like to see what else I can make rather than buy.

Well, as you can see I agonized over the design and fabrication.Posted Image  Blacksmith technology.

It does work just fine though.  To avoiding marking the club head I use a layer of duct tape before clamping in the vice.  Carbon steel heads are butter to bend, but 17-4, like Ping's, are a biotch.

Thanks for bringing this topic back to life. Here is a shaft puller that I made. I copied it from someone else on this or another forum. I wish I could find his post to give him credit.
I ground down the top screw portion of the jack so the pipe would fit firmly on it, then hammered it on. A hacksaw and file can be used to make the slots in the pipe for the shaft to fit into. Use a rubber shaft clamp to safely hold the shaft in the drill vise. It is all bolted to a piece of angle iron. It works great.

Would you be willing to help me build my own loft/lie bending machine via internet communication? I have been wanting to do this for a long time but I am scared of ruining my precious irons. BTW both of my iron sets are forged, so bending should be relatively easy...
