I've taken my obsession to a new level

Purchased a Shaft Extractor
I've stepped it up a notch on my equipment obsession. I went out and bought a Golfsmith Premium Shaft Extractor and heat gun. I've dabbled in building clubs in the past so I have experience in club assembly, but now I can pull and replace shafts at will.

I've had the thing for 1 day and already pulled two shafts (it's so easy with the extractor it's rediculous). I'm in trouble with this thing.

I have a good friend and golf buddy who sounds just like you. After completing a difficult project at work his boss told him to go pick out a new driver as a reward for a job well done. He told his boss he would really rather have a loft and lie bending machine. His boss just shook his head, made some comment about engineers and their toys and told him to go ahead.

 

It gets a lot of use as he builds several sets of clubs a year for family and friends. I also use it to check and adjust the specs of my clubs a couple of times a year or verify the specs of new clubs. I told him it was one of the best tools he ever got.

It becomes bad when you start buying drivers just for the shaft and throwing the heads away.

 

A good shaft extractor is worth it's weight in gold. Saving one Diamana or Speeder pays for the machine instantly. Imagine trying to pull a high dollar shaft without one!
