Default Hard as Hull

I just got some of this to try... used it once, set it down.. now.. I can not for the life of me get it opened.. any suggestions what might break it down?

I tried dropping some acetone down the threads (bottle upside down) - no joy...


Thanks in advance..

Use pliers.

Then vaseline the threads to keep it from locking on you.

Default Re: Hard as Hull

I figured the pliers would crack the top for sure.. wrapped it in cloth with vise grips not too tight - worked fine.

And the Vaseline tip - we'll see how that works!

Microwave.. never would have thought of that.. thanks!

I have tried every head cement know to man and i always go back to Sally Hansen clear nail polish. I have never had an issue with it, you can buy it anywhere and its cheap and very effective.

microwave it.

I WOULD SERIOUSLY RECOMMEND AGAINST THIS.... most head cements are complex compounds that are flammable, even the VAPORS can be flammable!!

++++++to the above. If you want to heat it, soak it in hot water.

Glad it worked. I have an old semi truck tire inner tube that I cut up to get rubber that use for multiple purposes including opening stuck lids. Go to a truck tire service center and they will give you the throw away inner tubes.

I also make big rubber bands by tying the strip ends together to hold garbage liners in place. You can use a piece to "relax" coiled leaders but it heats the leader and is not recommended for the tippet. You can use it on the butt sections.

sorry to disappoint you all.... I microwave my cements regularly to loosen them up..
There's been no explosions... you only do it for a few seconds at a time just warm them up.

this may seem like apples and oranges to some, but anyone that's built a rod or two knows that microwaving the rod finish will extend not only it's working time but the viscosity as well.

Same difference

Default Re: Hard as Hull

After I open a can of varnish and split it into baby food jars I pop one in the microwave for tops 15 sec uncovered for wrapping guides, doesn't smell doesn't explode and I have yet to call 911. Another builder I know sets a can of McClosky's on an electric stovetop to get it hot before he dips. Just be smart about it and don't throw it in on the setting for baked potatos!
