Wico Leaf Joystick Question


Just bought some old control panels with buttons and joysticks included.  I am in the process of disassembling them to clean 'em up and have run into a problem.  There are two Wico leaf joysticks with a rubber diaphraghm attached.  
How do I remove the diaphraghm?  Are these sticks just so old that the rubber has glued itself to the sticks?  Is there a secret?


Yeah, the shafts should slide right out.  They most likely are pretty gummed up from the years of use.  Spray some silicone on them to loosen them up.  DON'T use WD-40 or penatrating oil, as that can break down the rubber in the old grommet.
