For bridge studs I'd screw the posts in, then use a claw hammer or something.

For the string ferrules, use a drill bit or something to drift them out from the other side.

I happened to have a puller that was the same thread so I used that for the bridge studs.

Stew Mac has quality replacements. Way more dense then the crappy pot metal ones I pulled out.

I used a very small chisel and basically did what you see in the diagram lumby gave, but on a smaller scale. Make sure to use the shim, and masking tape all around it in case you slip. This will save the finish.
