You want retro-grouchage? I'll give you retro-grouchage:

Gunks rack:

short -thin
short-medium
short-thick
long-thin
long-medium
long-thick
1/2" angle
5/8" angle
3/4" angle, maybe two.
1" angle, maybe also 1.25" angle
1.5" angle

Now that's a gunks rack. Dig it.



Awesome. Now just tell us not old's cool guys how to get the old broken mank out so we can put in the new not shiny stuff.

A funkness device - but given the age of a lot of the pins, you'll probably just rip out the eye and leave the rest of the rust in the placement.
A thin chisel can help. In a pinch, a long-thin LA or a thin Bugaboo or blade can work.
Perhaps a crowbar on occasion?

Oh, most importantly, a good hammer.
