how to debond glued parts with ease ?

17 June 2013 - 11:48 AM

I have heard that  placing a model or parts one wishes to "de bond" is to place the item in a zip lock bag & place it the deep freezer. Sadly enough I have tried this with no success. Is there any other methods of debonding  cemented styrene parts? 

The reasoning why, I have been given three large boxes of glue bombs & wish to salvage as many spare parts as possible for my & anyone Else's benefit  should the need arise.

  Whom ever glued these kits together swamped the kit's in cement. Some not worth the time others yes.

It would be a shame to place the  entire collection under file 13.

 

Any idea's & discussion is very welcome.


Model room fire safety?

After noticing in the spray can thread of how many of us have a large stash of paint & chemicals for our hobby needs . My question is : How many Builders  have a  fire extinguisher on hand in your work area ?  Basic extinguisher or a class ABC?

While out with the family last Saturday night stopping for some supper I came across this.
