I have had some tough ones before but these things are killing me. I have rebuilt three sets and had some tough ones. I have soaked in kano for two days, used a propane torch [I knew that wouldnt work] and beat on them till I was pissed. I really enjoy rebuilding hinges and would like to continue on. Has anybody come up with a tool or small press that will do the job? I know a torch would work but I dont own one. I am trying to think of a way to press them out without spending a ton of money. Ideas?
