Hi All, Some of you have professional experience in paint shops and I know that dull blades won't cut it :laughing: in a pro shop!

Here is what We use. As a heavy equipment mechanic I have many pairs of snap ring pliers. Just insert pliers in the slot and bingo they are apart. WORKS GREAT!!! One thing i should add you can pick up a pair at any hardware store Lowes, Menard's Home Depo ect. and they are inexpensive.

A couple of months ago, I had a few bucks laying around and well, like any of us in this twisted and sick hobby...I just had to spend it. LOL.
