Brownell's sells the tool, I think it's $20, the tool works every time and will last longer than humankind will.
I bought the tool. It never worked well. One of the inserts fell off and I had to epoxy it back on. When I tighten it very tight and turn it the tool would spin on the rod and rod not move. I just bought a pretty beat up mode 10 and completely disassembled and cleaned. Needed to wrap the rod in a piece of leather and unscrew by spinning the cylinder. All is well but want to see if there’s a better way. I watched a video from Midway USA and Larry Potter spin-off tbe cylinder to the right I believe as he had the rod in the padded vice.

And yes, I had dummy rounds in the cylinder as I did it.
