I've been rebuilding a few old blanks and i have one dilema. After stripping off the guides and taking off the thread, I've been noticing that the matealic coating on the thread has been sticking to the blank. I've tried using acitone only to get frustrated. Any tips? Thanks Again

Hi Ralph,

Are you wrapping over the same area? If so you can hit the area with 400 or 600 grit wet paper and alcohol. Just do it lightly.

Sometimes a finger nail moving over the area as the blank spins is effective.

Thank you

Hi Capt. Neil,
No I'm not wraping over the same area. And if I did the sand paper trick can I do it all along the blank to give it a uniform apearance? Or should I try some thing else. Thank you

Hi,

I would try wiping the area with a paper towel soaked with acetone. Wear gloves and do in a ventilated area.

If that doesn't work, I think it will, try a scuff pad. don't use a lot of pressure.

If you scuff pad the entire blank, clean with isopropyl alcohol 91% and paper towel, then you can apply a thin coat of finish epoxy.

However, I would install the wraps and guides before epoxying the blank area.

If a problem arises get me on the land line.

I think it will come out just fine.
