Here is what you'll need: [https://eshop.macsales.com/item/OWC/MAU3ENVOYPRO/|OWC - Portable, bus-powered Apple Blade SSD enclosure].
 
Its a handy tool, if you really won't need it again you should be able to get some of your money back selling it on eBay.
 
=== Update (08/24/2017) ===
 
Lets backup here a bit the OWC support person answered a different question. Not if the OWC Envoy Pro external case I've pointed you to would support the custom Apple blade SSD that your system from the factory would have.
 
If someone got a HD only model I could see someone swapping out the HD for a 2.5" SATA SSD. So you'll need to ask your customer if the system was altered from the factory config, if not you have the blade SSD.
 
Moving on...
 
If you take a look at the link I provided you'll see at the bottom ''The OWC Envoy Pro can fit SSDs from...'' In the bottom row you'll see your system: ''iMac (27-inch Late 2012)(October 2012) Model ID: iMac13,2''
 
So OWC has verified it will support the Apple blade SSD drive. I've also used this OWC Envoy case without any problems. OWC have a few different versions of the Envoy case for the different SSD drives Apple has used so you do need to get the correct one.
 
Here is the OWC vid on gaining access to the blade SSD: [https://eshop.macsales.com/installvideos/imac_27inch_late_2012_ssd/|iMac 27-Inch Late 2012 SSD Card Install Video] This vid shows the OWC SSD being installed. In your case you're removing the Apple SSD this system has.
 
Here is the IFIXIT guide: [guide|15758|iMac Intel 27" EMC 2546 SSD Replacement] which goes over the finer details on pulling the display and lists the tools and adhesive strips you'll need.
 
'''Make sure you review both thoroughly!'''

For reference here is one person who sadly damaged their screen as they did not use the correct tools or follow the instructions: [post|420462] as you can see this was an expensive Opps! A new 27" display is muchwould be a more expensive Opps!
