Hammer tip glue question
« on: April 15, 2018, 07:38:07 AM »
I'm replacing the hammer tips on my '80 Mk II. I did this a few years ago but haven't been happy with the sound so am trying a few things. My question is this, when I removed the tips this time I noticed a layer of glue hardened on the plastic hammers. So the glue that I had used came off pretty easy and was "rubbery". This looks like was the original glue or at least from someone previous and was very hard like the plastic, I'm guessing cyanoacrylate and not coming off. Do you think this will affect the adhesion of the tips and if so any recommendations for removing? Acetone? It's not terribly thick but I'm not getting just the plastic of hammers. I didn't have any tips come off the first time but some seemed not to adhere great. Some came off very easy as well.

Okay never mind...I just scraped with a blade and I think it's all good.
