They really are a super tight fit and I struggle with mine to get apart. I support the bottom of the longest section with my foot whilst holding below the join with my left hand and grab the top of 2nd section with my right and see saw it apart. I put silicone spray on joining piece aswell.
Its a turnip but needs to be as tight as poss.

Yep I've had the same problem. See saw action seems to work as described before...

If you put a sliver of greaseproof paper between the parts when you joint them together, would that affect the performance of the jig?
If not, that might assist you in getting the parts apart again.

An old trick to prevent metal parts binding, when bolted or screwed together is to use intermediate cork or fibre washers.



HTH :)

If still stuck, could always reverse a sash cramp and place in holes to force apart

fes,

I wasn't suggesting that the grease proof would separate the pieces.

I was suggesting putting it between the two components when you put them together to prevent them sticking. :)
