use a air hammer and the chisel attachment, heat the chisel up and have a spare warm so you can switch them out. That or i used a wood chisel and a standard hammer, just dont get a plastic handle

Get more hot knives, couple boxes of beer, 3 or 4 buddies.. Should get them knocked out in a few hours

Ive seen those electric turkey carvers used, good for cutting lugs off. Just dont take the ol ladys..
