Help! Epoxy dried in Microguides

Recommended Posts

On my rod build on my 2nd coat of epoxy, epoxy dripped and filled up a few of my size 4.5 microguides while it was on the rod dryer! Is there anything I can do to salvage those few guides or am I going to have to order and wait for new ones to come and replace them?

 

Thanks,

Ryan

Carefully pop it out with razor blade or exacto knife. You're not the first or last to have this issue. Don't sweat it.

What he said, or a tiny drill bit spun by hand to clear the guide.

Thanks guys. With some careful work I got it out after a while. I was worried I would have to wait the week plus to get the same guides to come in the mail.

Just a thought- if you are using multiple coats and still enveloping guides, I think you are applying it too heavy, or your dryer set up is significantly out of level.

I was definitely applying it too heavy.
