Recently I've bought used Steadicam Merlin. I found 8 mid weights in the package as manual describes. The dubious thing they are combined by sets of 1, 3, and 4 weights stuck one upon other in a metal rod, so that I can not detach them, I mean I can not split 3-weiths and 4-weights sets further, I can not remove any single weight from this sets. I wonder if it's 'by design', or they suppose to be detachable and just stuck to each other in years of inactivity. If it's not a natural behavior, any suggestions on how to split them?
Thanks

They just thread together, like a a screw. You might try some lube or heat and some strap wrenches.
