    Wilson die bushing stuck

    Just bought a neck die and the bushing is stuck in there
    Its currently sat in penetrating oil.
    Any ideas how to get it out without ruining the bushing

    Suggest gentle heat application and tap die upside down on wooden block

    If that doesn't work then apply pressure from above with brass rod directly on to bushing(if its a small enough diameter to allow this

    Cheers,
    Tried heat and a wet rag on the bushing to get it to contract but nothing
    Its 100% solid!
    And little step to get behind it

    What sort of bushing is is is it a genuine bushing or home made ? steel ? carbide or nitride. this might give you a clue to what is fouling it stopping it droping out How hot did you get it ? do you need the Bushing after or can more force be used?

    What would happen if you just heat up the unit in the oven to hot . then drop in cold water ?

    What do l.e.wilson advice?
    Probably more questions that answers but they could prompt you to a solution.

    Cheers Craig
