CLAIMS

1 . Apparatus (2) for the removal of a circular collar (18) swage-mounted on a cylindrical projection (1 6), the apparatus comprising:

a connection member (8, 10) for connecting the apparatus to the cylindrical projection, which cylindrical projection defines a major axis (A-A) of the apparatus when the connection member is connected thereto;

at least one moveable cutting member (28) for selective engagement with the collar after the connection member is connected to the cylindrical projection;

an opposing member (32) arranged to be mounted within the apparatus opposite the at least one moveable cutting member;

the apparatus characterised in that relative movement between the connection member and the at least one moveable cutting member and/or the opposing member permits the collar to be centrally located between the at least one moveable cutting member and the opposing member.

2. Apparatus according to claim 1 wherein the relative movement between the connection member and the at least one moveable cutting member and/or the opposing member comprises movement of the connection member.

3. Apparatus according to any one of the preceding claims wherein the connection member is formed in a translation means (40, 42), which translation means permits travel of the connection member in a linear path between the at least one moveable cutting member and the opposing member.

4. Apparatus according to claim 3 wherein the linear path along the translation means is along a diameter with respect to the major axis, the circumferential ends of which diameter are between the at least one moveable cutting member and the opposing member, such that the translation means permits free travel along this diametric path.

5. Apparatus according to any one of the preceding claims wherein the opposing member includes or comprises a second cutting member.

6. Apparatus according to any one of the preceding claims wherein the opposing member is immovable.

7. Apparatus according to any one of the preceding claims wherein the opposing member provides a reaction surface to the at least one cutting member.

8. Apparatus according to any one of the preceding claims wherein the engagement of the at least one cutting member with the collar permits cutting of the collar from the cylindrical projection.

9. Apparatus according to claim 5 wherein the opposing member also permits cutting of the collar from the cylindrical projection.

10. Apparatus according to any one of the preceding claims wherein the connection member comprises an adjustable collet which clamps around the cylindrical projection.
