The icky #6 on the left is my go to set. These work very well with the plastic sheet trick.
The second one with the turret is for chronos, mostly Lem. 5100 and Vj7750. These are mandatory for these chronos because they really like to pull the pipe
out of the sweep second hand, because the hand is pressed very tightly on the pinon, in order to deal with the forces involved when resetting the chrono.

Last three are really only useful on pockets, timers, or small clocks.

Small subdial hands I will usually use the dial itself to try and remove, this puts the most equal amount of pressure on these delicate hands and works 99% of the time without any issues to hands or dial. BUT it does have to be done very carefully while prying up on the dial and watching what the hand is doing. If you get a hand that is on too tight, you can easily damage the dial or hand if you don't know what to do next.

Cheers,
Randall

And they are like any other tool. You should start out with what you think is best, and see how it develops, maybe you`ll go to something else, or find something better that you prefer.
