Replacing 7mm center collet... without the extractor?

I have an overtightened APC-7mm connector with a damaged center collet I want to replace.  I found the part numbers for the replacement collet and the extractor tool from Agilent here.

What I'm wondering is if anybody knows of a way to extract the collet without damaging the connector, without buying the expensive tool for it.  We'll buy the tool if need be, but since this is grad school we can afford to spend a few hours fiddling with it instead of buying the right tool for the job and still save money
