Creaking sounds are to be expected if the chips have not been removed for decades. It's just the legs scraping on the socket contacts when they are being pulled out from the socket.

Most DIP pullers are not very good, especially when used with those old chips that have been in the socket since the machine was made.

I find a thin flat bladed screwdriver works best, 1mm at a time alternating between the ends of the socket. You just need to be careful that the tip of the screwdriver does not hit the circuit board.
