    I have no idea if there is already a thread covering this but id like to know, how do people switch around the orbitals on the x-metals such as juliets and romeos? Any advixe on how to do it easier than taking it to a blacksmith?

    -sidenote, has anyone ever successfully removed radar earstems? Whats your method if so

    do a searh for the xmetal stuff. for juliets you need to punch the pins in the nosrbridge out, for romeo they come all apart with the t6 driver.

    radar- not removable afaik. its a pressed plastic pin.

    You can use a punch and knock them out front to back.

    But wouldnt punching them out ruin the pins? Im trying to be conservative here considering im not exactly "wealthy" per se. I wouldnt want to completly ruin a good set of juliets especially now that they are no mas

    Also, what about re-inserting the pins. Is it a "ta-da" easy insert or is it a bunch of trouble not worth doing? See i wanna switch around my plasma and carbon orbitals and earstems but not send them off and have to pay for it. Was always told if you can do it why pay someone else to?
