  2. Because Photobucket has chosen to in effect "take down" everyone's photos (unless you pay them), we have extended post edit time in the Luthier's Corner to UNLIMITED.  If you used photobucket and happen to still have your images of builds, you can go back and fix as many of your posts as far back as you wish.

Disolving CA Glue

Discussion in 'Luthier's Corner' started by count_funkula, Dec 20, 2004.


  1. I have a couple of carbon fiber rods in a bad neck blank that I would like to remove. They are glued in with CA. Any recommended products to break down the glue so I can remove the rods?

    Thanks.
     
  2. fingernail polish remover...

    dunno if that will harm the resin in the rods.
     
  3. They make a CA solvent that I've used. It's gentle and isn't acetone like fingernail polish remover. It takes a few minutes but it softens CA pretty well. I get mine at a local hobby store that carries all the cool RC car and airplane stuff. I bet if you looked at www.towerhobbies.com you could find the same thing.
     
  4. Thanks guys. I found some stuff at the local hobby shop that worked great.
