My email folders are all screwed up and your right about the right tool.  I 
am certain that I read somewhere someone has a very rigid alignment tool. 
Everything that I have is junk plastic.  Point me.

Kindest regards Jim K9AXN

It's much easier to split a soft powered slug that's very hard to turn or
jammed in a core with an allen wrench. Get a good quality set of
alignment tools that's designed for the job.
