Default Gurian tool?

Has anyone got the special tool for putting the pins back into a Gurian neck joint?

From Frets.com

"While it's handy to have the "real" tool, a simple block of lead can be used to drive the pins in just as well."

Looking at the tool on the above site, it appears to be similar in size and shape to the tongs used to lift mason jars from a canning bath. Maybe one of those could be altered/repurposed?

Thanks, Mate.

Iíve got one of the canning tongs. I think it might not take a lot of pressure. Iíve seen the frets link, just wondering if anyone had the tool.

Have you seen Mike McConnville on YouTube redoing a Gurian neck?

His business is called StringTech Workstations.
