Help me take my RE20 apart!
I suspect the only way forward is to use serious force, but I don't know how to apply it. Because the mic is cylindrical, it slips out of whatever is gripping it before you can apply enough torque. Any ideas?

Gentle, well directed heat (you can get a very fine flame on a garage oxy...J.O.K.E!). Hair dryer maybe rather than the Deck&Blacker paint stripper? See, thread lock compound often softens when hot. Use it on amp indicator lamp housings.
What solvent? Toluene will dissolve most organic substances but get it orf ASAP, can attack stove enamel so might strip the plating.
Gripping? Try some big cable ties or fabricate a strap wrench from a leather belt.

Personally, I'd try with a couple of those 'stickie cloths' that kitchen shops sell for opening jam jars to provide a better grip. The leather belts might help too.
