The clamp and the mallet

While building a project, I found that a key part was stuck.

I tapped it with a mallet, then harder, and eventually whacked at it. No luck.

Then I got smart and put three clamps around the part, gently turning each one, increasing the pressure, until it simply popped out.

Persistent, gentle pressure almost always outperforms sudden, violent blows.
