So I've got an Etek3 with the barrel stuck together...

As the title says, Etek3 with a Shaft3 one piece that should be a two piece. Any suggestions besides strap wrenches? I've tried a blowtorch, a padded vise, and a padded vise grip and got absolutely nothing.

You sure you're turning it the right way, correct? Just making sure. Someone people don't know that the newer eclipse barrels are reverse threaded.

I had a similar issue with an Ego barrel once. Let me see if I can find the thread but I want to say I left it in the freezer for like three days.

IF it is really stuck then use two strap wrenches (in opposing directions)

If you're impatient, dry ice is cheap and easy to come by.

This is my brother's Etha barrel right now. But he knows he left it in the car for too long for all the paint from that one day to stick it together.

If I remember right hot/boiling water can help. Otherwise try the cold since the metal will contract a little bit. Otherwise you could possibly use an on/off asa and a co2 bottle for a little bit of a deep freeze (but I wouldn't recommend it/I'm not responsible if you do).

Hot, but not boiling to soak out gunk. Clean, dry thoroughly, let set for several hours. Then in freezer several days. Heat water get gunk loose, freeze separates parts.
