I dont like cannon pinions when they are stuck.

Gruen did have a tool for it (even patented). Does anyone have one of these?

I have two. They work quite well, but only on larger movements.

Use a hand remover, it is the best tool for removing stuck cannon's let alone all cannon's.

Yeah, I use those for it. But sometimes it just won’t move. Evil or Very Mad So looking for alternatives… and a Gruen tool that does the trick would be cool! Cool

Cary, can you show with some pictures how it works?
