Throw the bit in the oven or on the barbeque. The plastic will shrink as it heats up, and if you get lucky, you can melt it out. Otherwise you'll have enough room to get the awl/pin/whatever into it, and you'll have broken the suction.

I ended up trying a carpet knife, and it worked perfectly. I'm not sure why it would cut when the utility knife wouldn't, perhaps just the longer length of expose blade did the trick, or perhaps my utility blades weren't very sharp. I also used a board underneath and pressed firmly, but it was still much better than the utility knife, industrial scissors, ...

It is not quite clear to me why you want to remove the brush holders. Normally the brush replacement does not require much saw dis-assembly at all. You simply remove the cap part (item #46) and remove and replace the brush. From looking at the exploded parts diagram it appears that the brush holder (item #50) is simply press fit in place and secured with ...

The battery is too close to the motor, so if the user does something like try to bore through five feet of diorite, everything could heat up and then the battery explodes.

Nearly all Li-Ion battery product recalls are fire risks. See Boeing 787 at the more embarrassing end of that spectrum. "Customer service peons" not knowing why is more an example of "customer service" being done by people with scripts in some other country who have never even seen the product that don't have an updated script than the company "not knowing ...

The local code in my area requires that the burr on the inside of the copper pipe or tubing is removed prior to soldering. Most well made tubing cutters have a deburring blade integrated into the tool, but for large scale pipe work a separate deburring tool called a reamer works way easier and better. Contrary to previous answers, a hack saw does not leave ...

Having used both the brushes and sandpaper, I can say the brushes are far better. However, when using the fitting brush on the outside, you can't turn the pipe back and forth - it bends the bristles the wrong way. If you have a lot of pipe, get the power drill version. Much faster. You can also get pipe reamers for your drill, but if you use a tubing ...

The fitting brush will work if you use it with the proper sized copper pipes. When I say it will work I refer to cleaning oxidation off pipe and fittings. You should expect reasonable results for both the outside of the pipe using the holes in the tool and for inside of fittings using the brush. This brush will not work well for removing burrs on the end ...
