busted hand

Posted in Custom Workstation

While removing the hands from a DCUC Hawkgirl I ripped the peg off the hand so now it's stuck in the wrist. What's the best way to get it out? When this has happened to me with the shoulders before I've just drilled it out and used a screw, but DCUC female arms are so thin that I think drilling may do too much damage and I"m not even sure I can find a screw small emough to work. Any thoughts?

I'd get a tiny screw (I have a large amount of tiny screws ), screw it into the broken part of the peg, heat the arm then use the screw to pull out the peg.

Yeah, I was thinking something like that with maybe boiling water. I sculpted on the chest, so I want that to dry first so figure I'd field ideas. Thanks!

Maybe you could heat up a straightened paperclip and stick into the remaining peg then use a hair dryer to soften up the rest of the arm and then try and pull it out? Just a thot
