Just turn that old Craftsman spark plug socket around and use it backwards. No need to cut it up. I found I had two of those "specialized" tools in my tool chest.

Jim, you would need a big spoon to hold the 4 oz (measured) that I pulled out of my R12 the other day that way. I guess you could do it a couple times to get more. Maybe mine works better because it...

Mostly 3 bars, but 4 when running high speeds in 85/90+ weather. More 3 bar vs 4 bar time as the engine accumulates more miles.
