Have a little problem. I've got a threaded fork which of course uses the "expanding wedge" to hold the stem in place. My problem is the wedge is stuck inside the steerer. Is drilling it out the best way to go?

After use of heat/cold to break the bond, penetrating oil, tapping out with a punch/hammer, and a combination of all these.
