"RE: HELP filter crossed threaded"

Now this is not for the faint hearted but this is how I have done it in the past, not just for me, but also on a friends camera who had a poleriser stuck on for over 2 years!!!.
What I do is this; take a knife and gently (GENTLY) insert it between the filter and the threads where the two are only just visible and carefuly prise them apart. You are only asking the filter threads to move a tiny amount to allow the filter to pop its threads back into place. It can be done and I expect many on here will disagree but I have done this a few times with no damage but a freed filter.
