    My gp broke in the head. So I pushed it back in and it was laying there. I could feel it with my finger. Got the dust buster and sucked it out, but I did not find it in the bag or on the ground. put my finger in and I did not feel it. My boss said it can't fall in deeper. One of the guys on my crew said it can go deeper. Should I just pull the head? I am confused anybodys help would be appreciated.

    Thanks Mike

    If you cant suck it out try using a telescoping magnet, if that doesn't work and your sure there are still pieces in there then
    you should probably pull the head.

    I might got the gp out, but what if it went deeper in? That is what I need to find out. Can it go deeper?

    Thanks Mike

    Mine broke off and fell into the cylinder and I had to take the head off to get to it.
