Mid bead on my DT11 fell out, I took it to a reputable smith to have it replaced, he must have spilled a couple of spots of the epoxy he used to attach the bead. It is hard as a rock and I’m wondering if there is anything available that might disolve the glue without harming the blue?
i scrape epoxy from blueing with a sharp edge piece of copper. it will not damage the blueing. DO NOT use it on a glass beaded (satin) finish;. it will leave copper marks. don't know why he would have used epoxy. i suspect something went wrong.
Ok , here is the real way to remove it.
Use a blow dryer to heat it up and the edge of a wood stick to push it off. I had a Model 37 The previous owner epoxied
a buckhorn sight to the receiver to use for deer. It was a glob with a long thin drip down the side.. . Worked in a few minutes of heating.
Read to the bottom.
I attached some lead weights to the barrels of my O/U under the forearm wood using a bit of epoxy. I thought it would hold but it didn't. I have some epoxy residue on the mid-rib. I can heat the epoxy up with a heat gun and remove the epoxy... My question is would the heat ruin the finish on...
