What do you do with your damaged rail joiners? I've got a bagful of these which were accumulated when I fitted all my points with Hillman or Massoth rail-clamps to aid lifting for servicing purposes. I have to admit I butchered them somewhat at get round the 'pimple' which prevented easy removal. A screwdriver and side-cutters were my tools of choice, coupled with a generous helping of impatience and brute force. Looking for suggestions (I expect they'll not all be practical), not necessarily on a postcard. The alternative is they will be consigned to the bin.
