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.
