Removing Inner Plastic Ring from Form
« on: July 20, 2013, 11:31:39 AM »
Does anyone have advice on how to remove the inner ring of a plastic specialty pressed cheese form such as this one for Manchego (http://www.fromagex.com/usa/english/moulds/pressed/manchego-mould-o-110mm-1296)?

Teeth, pliers, oil drops and swear words aren't working.

It just slides out IIRC. Invert, rubber mallet tap, finish?
Taking an extended leave (until 2015) from the forums to build out my farm and dairy. Please e-mail or PM if you need anything.

Did you try immersing in hot water , as a mechanic , I use Heat all the time for pulling tight bearings or bushings from shafts or inner bosses.

You never know , it might work on plastic as well.
No..........I'm not a professional CheeseMaker , but I play one on TV.
