Need Advice on Removing Endstones

Question

I'm working on an Elgin pocket watch and cannot remove the endstones on either the main plate or the balance cock. All other jewel settings of this type have just fallen loose upon removal of the two screws. However, in this watch, it's like they were press fitted in as I'm unable to even pry them out. Would appreciate any suggestions you may have.

In addition to the screws they are generally a light friction fit. There are tools called appropriately "jewel pushers" that are star shaped with 6 or so brass rods for pushing them out. Even better is a jeweling tool. Lacking those pegwood can work.
