Default Gun Smithing -- J-frame frame vice?

My "smith" is trying to remove the barrel from a Model 49, but he doesn't have a J-frame frame vice, and he's having trouble getting the barrel to "let go" and he doesn't want to torque the frame to get the barrel out.

I'd appreciate suggestions.

Thanks much,

Wow.

It appears to be a common problem.

Thank you for the links.
