Yesterday I had an oops.

Today I was able to fix it without the parts I ordered. I was able to pull out the ball bearing with a shot of air. And a bit of picking to get rid of the burrs. Oh, the picking was easy because of the soft cheese like nature of the steel.

Then… then there was some pounding. I started with a few hex / Allen wrenches. No real luck there. I hammered in the bit and hoped for the best. The best didn’t happen. Just spun.

Then I tried a Torx bit.

And it came out.


I won!
