I let men soak in a penetrating oil for a month before I tried to pull it. That may help mate !
Do you think that WD40 would stand a chance?
i'd try "pb blaster".
I will have to look for something similar here or just use the big hammer
steel punch and the spine of a busse as a hammer if you're going that route...might as well have fun
It's Andy the Austrian. No typo. Exactly what he meant.
It puts the oil on the skin or else it gets the hose again...
That's about the same put a screw in it scenario I had !!! Eneloops ever since then.
Try soaking it over night in a baking soda solution, or white vinegar.
Thanks! I will try it. I think that the battery has expanded so much that it has stuck not only to the bottom but to the walls of the body too.
BTW, I hope you know I only meant soak the body, not the head with the electronics? I suspect either the baking soda or vinegar will do the trick.
Yeah, luckily the head screws off the body in this particular model and is completely undamaged.
........ that's not a dungeon I have.......its a fun pit....
Looks like a job for a drill press
Let us know if the soaking worked?
I haven't tried it but I have read that vinegar does clean up the corrosion. The battery will probably still be stuck from the swelling though. I have used screws and even a corkscrew to remove batteries but I have had a few that I couldn't remove.
Just tried removing it with a corcscrew, after staying submerged in vinegar for 2 days, it's so swollen that it's not going anywhere.
I am waiting on a replacement body.
Sorry to hear that. Maybe timdgsr's suggestion of using a drill press?
I am pretty sure that a drill press or a hand drill with a really steady hand will do the trick.
I just got the replacement body and will keep the damaged one for experimenting with it.
