    Be aware that it may be loose enough to press in with your finger until the temps go back to normal. So don't lose it. :D

    What? Me? Lose a small tiny part like the safety plunger spring for a G19? Or the same thing for a Kimber Micro .380? Or a thin, custom Hogue grip screw for a Sig M11-A1 for which I have no spare? Or the extractor plunger/safety detent spring for a vintage PPK/S? Or .... etc.

    I used a torch/heat gun dozens of times on bearings to slide over a shaft without a press using that method, works great.

    Some light filing/sanding today...was too lazy too do much else. Will pick up on it tomorrow and see if I can't get the sights and barrel tenons installed.

    Sometimes doing this type work inside a clear plastic bag works. Just don't let it slip over your head.

    My sis brought us one of those giant plastic containers of cheeseballs a few years ago, and I kept the container for the purpose of making a dome to work under from both ends for tiny stuff. I still have it.

    Unfortunately, it managed to get filled up with other stuff before I got around to cutting one side out... :hithead:
