I forgot to compress it and insert a pin into it before I took it out. Now its like a rock and I dont know if I can compress it back in.... Any ideas? I dont want to break it.

No biggy. Get a c clamp. It should take you at least a FULL minute to do it, but very slowly tighten it until you can put the pin through.

And hold it vertical while you tighten it. If you do it horizontally all the magic falls out.

Seriously, it is supposed to take 3-4 minutes and it is supposed to be held vertically. Very small tightening increments over an insanely long amount of time should do it.

I use the claps they use to hold wood when you cut it


And put a penny in the end of the shaft.

They compress it really easy and they go slowly.
