Re: Replacing cable on P6075A probe

A length of wood across the lid to spread the load whilst hammering, moving around the circumference while so doing, then inverting the can to let the remaining paint seal any micro holes to stop the solvent evaporating.

I don't hammer them anymore and find that merely pressing the lid with my hands or thumbs seats the lid well enough. Besides, a lot of the modern paint "cans" are plastic with a metal rim and lid. They hammer them at the big box stores but I still shy away from that.

Try just putting the can with the lid in the right place on a solid flor and
stand on it. If it goes right the lid is on securely, if not you have some
nice new different-coloured shoes.
