    Stand it on its side on some wood , put a punch or screwdriver tip on the inside of the rim and tap it w a hammer. Start light and go back to tap the same spot after each time you try the fit.

    I may give that a try. Hopefully I won’t have to buy another $12 brush for another lid if I screw it up.

    I would say you could also just sand a spot of chrome off the outside and put a bit of solder on it. Then sand as needed, but that would be more complicated.

    I had similar ideas. Just not thrilled about any of them particularly. The mallet is starting to look like the best option haha

    It worked!! I put a washer inside the lid to help space my punch. It took a little more than a “tap” with a hammer. But it snaps right onto my HP-B now. Can’t wait to test it out.

    Figured it would be a pretty sharp tap but you know, didn't wanna say beat it
