A long story short i have to remove pole pieces (in a single coil and maybe a humbucker) without damaging the bobbin. I am going two unwind the pickup, first. Would a rubber mallet work?
Thanks,

Also: They have a lot of rust on them. How do I remove that? I tried a strong eraser which removed all the brown stuff, but there is still black stuff on it. I know specific!

They arent in there that good. Should be able to get em moving with your fingers. Might need something to finish pushing em thru.
