    Dennis, That's great advice. One clarification whwn you say to the pusher with the side of a file what do you mean? My pushers are new, so this tip could definitely help. Thanks

    Great tips. When you advice hitting the pusher with the side of a file, what do yiu mean?
    Do I file the end of the pusher? Thanks

    So here are some options for the future.

    Use a thinner bezel, or softer material such as fine silver, or both.
    Use a softer pusher, made from heavy gauge brass wire. Traditionally the end of a pusher is hit with the side of a file a few times to make it less slippery.
    Make better fitting bezels, with the aid of a small light box.
    Cut scallops or other designs into the bezel edges, to reduce the amount of metal to be pushed. Dennis.
