I'm swapping all the orings on my kegs, and I've run into a particularly pesky oring that seems like it's glued on to the diptube. No amount of force is getting this thing off, so it looks like I may have to cut it. Do I have any other options? I'm not loving the idea of scratching up the diptube with a knife.

Heat did the trick. A couple seconds in boiling water and I pried it right off. Thanks day_trippr!
