I gently heat the wrap area using an alcoholic burner. Using a sharp razor/knife I cut the wrap above the guide foot to get loose ends to pull(I don't want to cut into the blank). Pull all the thread off. Do the same to the other side of the guide. If need be reheat the areas gently. Do not apply too much heat as you can soften the blank and ruin the blank. Some blank materials melt at lower temperatures than others.

Thanks Capt. Niel

I guess you use the heat to remove the finish that tends to gather at both ends of the bottom wrap? This is the finish part where there is no thread to pull.

Hi,

I use the heat before I cut into the thread. The ends usually spin off as the rod is turning and you use your thumbnail to scrape off the end residue.
