Help removing shaft on old school ping cushin putter!

Recommended Posts

I am trying to get the head off an old school bronze ping cushin and for whatever reason I can not get the head off... am I missing something here?  Ive removed a ton of heads with no problems with my heat gun or a torch, but this one just will not come off.  Did they use a different super epoxy back then? Or am I just missing something on how to get this thing off?  I want to take it in to work tomorrow to sand blast the head.

Do you have a photo ?

 

Many older Ping putters have the shaft secured in the head by ramming a ball bearing down the shaft to create a mechanical bond.

 

That can make the shaft extremely hard to remove and using a heat gun won't create enough heat in this case.

@mktrout: "+1" re @pt73's suggestion.
Other folks on GolfWRX have suggested that it's advisable to send it back to Ping for them to help re-shaft/ re-finish, due to the PITA to remove the ball-bearings.

If you are not worried about saving the shaft cut it off flush with the hosel and use a Dremel with course grinding stones to grind out the bearing as its very soft. I have done a couple this way and used 2 stones and about 15 minutes per club.

This is one of the more advanced things that clubmakers do. If you aren't experienced, send it to Ping or to another clubmaker with experience. I have done it a bunch of times, but there is a lot of "feel" to doing it correctly.

I attended the base GolfWorks Club Academy course in 2012. Lead instructor Jim Yachinich told us about the ball-bearing anchor used on many Ping putter shafts. He said unless a clubsmith has experience in the extraction, it's best to send it back to factory.
