the shaft of my bullseye putter has been bent in two half way from the grip. how do i remove the shaft and insert a new shaft and grip. i have an old bullseye standard putter, with a good standard leather grip and shaft, that i picked up at a garage sale.
i was told to heat the shaft tip about an inch above the blade hosel to about 280° for five minutes and them twist the shaft out. the shaft extraction tool does not work because there is no lip to force against ( if i try to use the extraction tool, it digs into the brass putter head). either i am doing it wrong or i don't have enough strength to twist it out.
for heat, i've used a heat gun, propane torch, and a natural gas flame, rotating as i heat.
i picked up a bullseye prop balance blade only. my plan is to buy another bullseye putter, with the same 35" length, and with a good shaft and leather grip, then install that shaft on my prop balanced blade.
sounds good on paper....but i have to find out how to remove the shaft first.
