Hi Guys, I have an interesting newbie problem. I have a vintage acutron case and on trying to remove the spring bar it snapped flush with the lug and now I have to find a way to ream out the scrap. I have a dremel tool with a drill bit that should do the trick but the problem is the other lug gets in the way and I will be approaching at an angle. Any tips/tools to help?
If the case is not steel and the pin is steel . You can try this trick warn water and Alum and with in a few days the steel pin is gone . You can buy Alum at the grocery store in the spice section
the warmer you keep the solution the faster it will work
Great Idea and will keep that in mind. I ended up using an ultra sound, oil and a needle to at least get some movement – finally the dremel on a work station, slow drill and gently reamed out the scrap.
