What does everyone else use to press the morse taper centers and chucks out of the lathe stock? I didn’t like using a screwdriver, so I took a couple of minutes and put this together. I’m not sure what you would call this tool (hence the stupid title) ... maybe a punch? Anyway, it’s just 5/16” rod epoxied into a fir handle. It has enough mass that a couple of taps usually loosens the fitting.
