    That method worked for me Tom.............







    'cept for the dry ice! I put mine in the oven as per instructions with the damper.

    The instructions with mine said it's ok to give a tap with block of wood etc to drift it home,
    obviously within reason etc. Although mine had been on and off for balancing at the shop so dunno
    if that helped.

    I had mine in the bucket of boiled water as suggested - for an hour.
    Kept topping it up with fresh water and man it was scalding but went on deftly with a tap.
    Real adrenalin rush trying to work at the speed of light before it cools off

    Now I've said that, next time I'll scope out the proper tool mebbes.

    cheers
