Maybe I missed it but for two ear knock offs why not use the steel knock off wrench that has been available for years. If you lean on the 20 something inch long lever, just say 100 pounds, you will apply a significant torque to the knock off. Wacking the ear of the knock off with a 2 pound hammer, lever length 4 inches, should be significantly less toque.  Professor Takahashi would be appalled that I could not summon up the correct equations to produce the actual torques applied but, hey, I’m old…..

What do people think about a 32 once rubber mallet versus a 45 once polyurethane dead blow hammer for removing knockoffs?
