  • Disassembly of airguides...stuck bezels

    Bezel stuck...one slid off with lots of pulling....the other isn't budging. Any ideas?

        Just tried to lightly clamp it in a vice but that didn't hold.....what did you use to hold it while you tapped [emoji34]

          I just repaired a glass in mine. Heated the bezel with a heat gun slowly to allow expansion of the metal then pulled off with leather gloves. Hot hot hot.

            Used my hands to hold assembly. Was gentle at first then gave it the taps a bit of tough love. It was a pain between taps... hopefully bezel was not removed then add with some adhesive.

              That worked. All 3 bezels off. One lens casualty. Sciensetuff.com has lenses. Now to drill a hole in the glass....
