I have hundreds of 2x2 Tiles that I use to create LEGO City scale footpaths and floors. They are arranged in a grid on baseplates in a similar way as shown below:
Recently I had decided to rebuild the entire city and I've struggled to find a way to easily remove all the tiles. For some of the larger baseplates, I can make it easier to remove tiles by slightly bending the plate so that they pop out.
I have been using the chiseled end of the orange brick separators to remove the pieces. They work perfectly when new, unfortunately the chiselled edge is quite soft and it bends quite easily, becoming almost useless over time.
The other end of the brick separator is even harder to use and I have tried the old grey brick separator also.
Do you have any recommendations for tools (LEGO, 3rd part or non-brick based) for removing these pieces?
I would prefer not to use anything metal or that may damage the bricks.
The tool should also be comfortable to use for removing many pieces.
