Apparently the barrel on my polish AKM kit is just too damn tight: I keep bending rods on the toth tool barrel install/removal tool while trying to push my barrel out (nitride lined hardened barrel). Is there anyone in NYS with a drill press willing to help me out?

Yep, barrel pin was only half inserted anyway to make removal easier. The darned thing keeps bending the rods on the toth tool, no matter how tightly I keep it in the vice or how straight and true I jeep things lined up and greased.

Id try again but this time
Put the entire assembly if the freezer for a few hours then quickly pull it out - put it in the remover and heat the trunnion to two or three hundred degrees w a small torch.
As you apply presser tap on the trunnion and barrel with a brass hammer.
