You'd think a 50 year old design would just keep going and going...we
use a lot of these in repairing arcade games!

3D printing to the rescue. It's perfect for limited runs.

What gets me is the price of the extraction tool. They want $ 42 for a
piece of steel that probably cost less than a dime and maybe after
tooling and design work a few bucks. I would think that $ 5 would be
more than a fair price for those.
