Jack Cup Assistance, assistance !!!!!!!

Okay, I know about electrosockets, have 'em in other guitars. But I have an old standard cup for a project that will not stay put. Am I supposed to press fit it, and how.

Hurry, I'm on the verge of having a great guitar. please help me, please

I purchased this special tool from Stew-Mac. It's a bit expensive for one project but good to have if you plan many. It will also remove the retainer clip.


Instructions are found here

Here's a link to a previous thread that show's Ole Fuzzy's homemade jack cup tool.
