A good way to fix a stuck coin inside the shell is to apply 2 hot glue sticks on oppposite ends letting them dry after heating them up and applying them on the coins. After they cool off you now have 2 handles to work with, gripping each opposing end then seperating the shell from the coin. Make sure to wash both sides of the coins with dawn liquid soap, let dry and then clean with rubbing alcohol, leaving the surface tactic for the glue sticks to adhere. After your finished peel off the hot glue it will not leave any sticky residue on the coins. Thanks. Smile

I triwd to sttretch out my shell with a piece of paper and it ripped so I was stuck with a paper circle inside my gimmick. I read almost every post and ad no luck with teqniuqes mentioned. so I got clever because, I wasnt goona except the fact that I was beat. It really works like a charm.

I tried the bang ring and I felt like I was going to damage my coin. That thing was really stuck due to the paper stuck inside. Forgive my spelling on my previous post. I must have been in a rush.

I've tried this method before too! Works like a charm.
I never really liked the method where you put the stuck [ and insert into a glass and shake as I feel like the [ might be damaged, so I tried the exact method above.
Sometimes I'd glue the half of the [ part onto a table and use the glue gun to get glue on the insert side to pull. Works better with ones that are more stuck. You'll need acetone to clean out the glue though.

I thought I was the only one who did this. I really thought I was something when I came up with it.

Btw, in almost every online store I see Roy Kueppers Expanded Shell Repair DVD.
I was wondering if it covers a special technique. Does anybody have this DVD? Is it worth getting it? Sth. new in there?

This is worth a look for shell repair though the images aren't loading for me at the moment.
