Are those left-handed threads, too?


The book written on, "The Military Guide to Financial Independence and Retirement", on sale now! For more info see "About Me" in my profile.
I don't spend much time here anymore, so please send me a PM. Thanks.

I guess the economy can't be all *that* bad if people are unwilling to take money for this job

I sure wouldn't come out of retirement to do it... well, name a $ amount first.

I can't vouch for the effectiveness of using acetone to dissolve the epoxy, but I don't think of acetone as being particularly "nasty". If you use gloves and allow plenty of ventilation, acetone is pretty benign stuff. I'd sure give that a shot before I started with power tools and the attendant mess. Get a copy of the MSDS for acetone ACETONE and see if you don't think you can handle it. Note that OSHA's Permissible Exposure Limit is 1000 ppm (that's literally 0.1% v/v in air). Humans actually produce acetone as a waste product.

End of lecture.
