I run over it with the van a few times and then hop out and chop on it with a axe before it can reshape, by then the shank is sticking out and I hurry up and chuck it up in the route table and turn on the router, It takes care of the rest.

The image is indelibly etched in my mind...not the package but the Jekyl/Hyde look that would have been on your face... 😂

With a shop full of sharp and cutting tools and you are having a bit of trouble opening a plastic container?

I have to admit they are tough, I requires some of those Sharp cutting tools to free them from captivity.

I read part of this thread a few days ago and was just baffled at the question.... Until I opened my first Freud bit package yesterday. I figured it out without referring back to this thread, but it was kind of a challenge. After using it just once, it is sure much nicer than those cheap bits. Much easier to follow those pencil lines and a nice clean cut.

I turn it upside down, lock it in a vice and use a pin punch to gently tap it almost out of the case then grab the shank and pull it out the rest of the way.
