What product to use to dissolve badge glue?

Postby bdp24 » Mon Jan 08, 2018 1:05 am

The VPI badge plate on the front of the Aries 1 table I recently received is very crooked, not at all close to being straight. My mild OCD compels me to want to remove it, and then re-attach it properly. I stuck a fingernail behind one corner of the badge, and it doesn't feel like it will just pop off. I'm thinking the best way to proceed may be to drip some adhesive remover behind the badge, and let it loosen the glue holding it on. Whatta ya'll think?

You can use Dental floss to remove it,, Stick some floss behind it and use like a saw ,,As for the glue try some WD40 ,,Works well removing glue ,,

Be careful with some commercially available products as they could harm your table's finish. Use Goo Gone, it is safe for painted surfaces.

Dental floss! Great idea, I'll try it. I have some Goo Gone, so maybe I'll drip some of it behind the badge first, then use the floss. Thanks guys.
