    Glad it worked! Now I must admit I'm going to need to see a picture of your "nose pliers".

    I'm not sure I'm familiar with that item.

    Ha ha. At first I thought, ouch!, and then eww, clean them first. (I know he means needle nose pliers.)

    I ordered mine off of ebay (Pony brand) and it was expensive. I had to choose a die set with it that fit the rivets I was using. but I still think it has some versatility for the repairs you describe. My press is 5.5" by 5", perfect IMO for Joes and T1 Megos.

    When you suggested needle nose pliers, I thought you were talking about a nose hair tweezer! lol I mean eyebrow tweezer! lol
    I don't own a needle nose plier. I grabbed the neck post with the nose tweezers and pulled it out that way. Luckily, I didn't cause any damage.
    Oh boy, I think I'm in trouble going forward. lol

    Thanks for the great tips! Do you bolt it down to a worktable for your needs? It sounds like it might be small enough not to require it.

    It is small but heavy, but I did not need to bolt it to work on the Joe elbows. It can be secured, though.

    If you have to check out Toy Polloi's videos on YouTube. He shows you how to fix the later run Action Man. I would imagine it would be quite similar to fixing a Joe Muscle Body.
