Wanted……ER10 miter gage indicator….
The agony of defeat. Two days submerged in Kroil, tapping, soaking, tapping, soaking. No luck getting the indicator button unstuck. Next process was putting some heat to it. DON’T unless you are 100% familiar with heating this relatively small piece of metal. The heat from the propane torch grossly deformed the piece.
I don’t feel I abused the heat from propane torch. I was evenly heating the piece and I felt the pliers that I was using start to close. I stopped immediately and looked at the piece and I could see where the pliers were digging in. Then I looked dead on at the face with the indicator button and saw where the top actually collapsed. I’m not sure if this piece is aluminum. Possibly white metal??
