In relation with my earlier post on stabilized wood for knife handle, Today I completed shaping the brass bolster. In a hurry, I glued ’em to the knife blade’s tang using 5min. Two-part Epoxy. I did not realize that one of the pin hole is off square to the other mate. I force clamped it but it won’t go leaving an irritating gap between the blade and one of the bolster. The glue was so fast set that I could not take them apart.
Question ; How to take the bolsters apart from the blade without damaging them? Can I soak it in any kind of solvent like spirit/thinner/turpentine?
Please help me coz I do not intend to make another set of brass bolster to replace it.
