Hi,
i lawn darted my FRCF F16mk1 (RiPieces). i repaired that one several times, so now i will scrap the plane.
when i built the plane, i glued in the carbon rod tube with 5min epoxy.
now i cut out the rod from the depron. in order to reuse the rod for another plane, i have to get rid of the remnants on the cf rod. any easy way on how to remove the remaining epoxy glue?

thanks

I've done the same a few times and the only way I've managed to get the epoxy off is to literally scrape it off with a knife being careful not to dig into the carbon.
The key is to be patient with it, if you rush there's a fair chance you'll damage the rod.
Whoever said nothing is impossible had obviously never tried slamming a revolving door...

Circa 1850 paint stripper works really well, turns epoxy to jelly.
