How many times have you seen frozen Edison Reproducers butchered by extracting from the carriage by people using a punch and hammer. Also broken carriages from brute force trying to free the reproducer.
Here is a simple jig you can make for under $5.00 that will extract the reproducer without leaving a mark or damage.
Head out to your local hardware store and you will find what is needed in the plumbing section.
You may need another pair of hands to help you holding the items together and you can use a C clamp or vise to do the pressing.
Hope someone can benifit from this post.
