They are cast in aren't they?

In would probably take a small grinder dremel type tool, or maybe a powerfile.

I have an old one somewhere with a snapped mounting lug if you want one to test with?

There are two different types. The earlier type DO have a separate "M" motif on each side which are held together by a spring so they can be removed with care. Something like a small screwdriver should lift it?
The later type are cast all in one and the "M" motif is painted afterwards.

Many thanks all I shall try and get back.
I have two-one is defo not painted on it has a granular consistency in the red material "M" and has a sort of lug holding mech or system holding in place.
So as it was a scrap unit I tried all sorts to free it AND was unsuccessful.It destroyed most of the lip and edges and of course the logo.
I shall look seriously at the other, and report back.
My reason for wanting to remove the logos is that I have had a unit made on a 3d printer and want to transfer the logos onto it rather than art work or printing-well thats why-the how will take a lot more effort I suspect.
