Try heating the plate up a little. A light bulb may provide enough heat to expand the metal a little bit and allow the jewel to come out a little easier. Make sure the jewels aren’t locked into their holes with gummy oil that dried out years ago. In Bob’s video he just pushes them out by hand with a hand held jewel pusher.

Yes – I tried the hand jewel pusher first but it did the same thing. However, I will try heating it up to expand the metal – as soon as I get something else to practice on that is. ;)

Thanks!
